Early endovenous treatment of Varicose Veins helps heal ulcers

A landmark publication of the EVRA study in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr Gohel has shown that patients with leg ulcers as a result of Varicose Veins can have their treatment improved to heal their ulcers and prevent recurrence by having early endovenous treatment.

In contrast with an earlier study that showed no benefit in early venous treatment by conventional Surgery, this EVRA study has shown that early endovenous ablation of superficial venous reflux resulted in faster healing of venous leg ulcers and more time free from ulcers than deferred endovenous ablation.

This finding has helped clarify the role of venous treatment for this complex group of patients to help improve quality of life.  

AVC offers a comprehensive range of endovenous treatments and we encourage patients with leg ulcers to seek an opinion to see if they can gain improvement with this.
