MedArt ILVO™ 1470nm Diode Laser
The MedArt ILVO™ 1470nm Diode Laser created advanced system and protocols to maximize the comfort, safe, fast and effectiveness of the varicose vein treatments. MedArt experts employed all their knowledge and more than 30 years of experiences 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 developed with 1470nm wavelength for endovenous vascular closure. MedArt ILVO can be also supplied in 980nm wavelength in request of the clinics.
How it Works:
MedArt ILVO diode laser provided different options of doing treatment with 600 micron optical fiber together with a guide wire introducer sheath and needle for percutaneous perforation. Prior to treatment the SFJ and GSV are mapped through use of color duplex ultrasound. The guide wire introducer sheath is introduced into the GSV – at level with the knee or the lower part of the thigh. The fiber is advanced via the introducer sheath until the fiber tip is positioned 1-2cm 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 anesthetic 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 ILVO Key Benefits
|MedArt Technical||MedArt Medical|
MedArt ILVO system Laser is ergonomically designed in complement two different fiber types of bare fiber and radial fiber with 400 or 600 µm fiber diameter. The ILVO kit also consists of Introducer catheter (14G, 70cm) with guide wire and cannula. MedArt also created Ouick Safe Connection (QSC) to have a minimal risk of having optical damages of fiber connection.
