MedArt ILVO 1470 nm Diode Laser
The MedArt ILVOTM 1470 nm Diode Laser is an advanced system that protocols to maximize the comfort, safety, speed, and effectiveness of varicose vein treatments. MedArt experts employed all their knowledge and more than 40 years of experience to develop and manufacture a reliable, portable, user friendly, and versatile laser product, with minimum to none maintenance for the best and most cost-effective treatment of all types of venous insufficiencies. The compact, table-top sized, and accurate MedArt ILVO system is developed with 1470 nm wavelength for endovenous vascular closure. MedArt ILVO is also available in 980 nm wavelength on request.
How it Works
The MedArt ILVO 1470 nm Diode Laser provides various treatment options with a 600 micron optical fiber, a guide wire introducer sheath, and a needle for percutaneous perforation. Prior to treatment, the SFJ and GSV are mapped through the use of color duplex ultrasound. The guide wire introducer sheath is introduced into the GSV at knee level or the lower part of the thigh. The fiber is advanced via the introducer sheath until the fiber tip is positioned 1-2 cm distal to the SFJ. A red guiding light emitted from the fiber tip provides a helpful indication of the tip position. Prior to release of the laser beam, the exact tip position is controlled carefully by use of ultrasound.
The method has been well tolerated by the majority of the patients treated, with only occasional feelings of heat during treatment. Most patients show mild ecchymosis and occasional mild induration and paresthesia in the area of anaesthetic infiltration. It is expected that the undesired side-effect incidence will decrease as the operators gain more experience in the use of this new technique. The results were evaluated by the physicians as well as patients.
MedArt ILVOTM 1470 nm Diode Laser Key Benefits
|MedArt Technical||MedArt Medical|
The MedArt ILVO 1470 nm Diode Laser is ergonomically designed to complement two different fiber types: bare fibers and radial fibers with a 400 or a 600 µm fiber diameter. The ILVO kit also consists of an introducer catheter (14 G, 70 cm) with guide wire and cannula. The MedArt Ouick Safe Connect (QSC) is created to minimize the risk of optical damages in fiber connection.
