Endoscopic Perforator Surgery
Endoscopic Perforator Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat chronic venous ulcers or other vein problems caused by abnormal “Perforator Veins” in the legs.
- Local or general anesthesia may be used
- Several small incisions are made at the site
- An Endoscope (with a tiny camera) is inserted into the vein
- A very small balloon is inserted into the Endoscope and inflated to create space in the vein
- When the damaged veins are identified, they are blocked using a surgical clip inserted through the Endoscope
