Abstract

Aim. This study evaluated the direction and the distance of the laser fiber migration after tumescent solution delivery in patients with primary varicose veins due to great saphenous vein (GSV) reflux who were treated with 1470 nm diode laser and 600 mu m core radial fiber through a prospective nonrandomized study.
