Comparison of Non-Tumescent n-Butyl Cyanoacrylate and Endovenous Laser Therapy in Saphenous Vein Ablation

Objective: Ablation of N-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) and endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) are two important techniques used in the treatment of venous insufficiency. The aim of this study is to compare the results of EVLA and NBCA methods in the treatment of saphenous vein insufficiency. Method: 739 patients with saphenous vein insufficiency who were followed up between 2013 and 2018 and treated with NBCA (350 patients) and EVLA (389 patients) applications were included in the study. Pre-procedure, during, post-procedure and follow-up data of the patients were collected and compared retrospectively. Results: In the group using NBCA technique; mean age was 46.09±6.12 years, mean age was 48.08±6.11 years in the EVLA technique group. The mean ablated vein length was 32.97-65.83 cm in the NBCA group and 30.65-67.25 cm in the EVLA group. The mean procedure time was 7 minutes in the NBCA group and 18 minutes in the EVLA group. The 12-month total occlusion rates in the NBCA and EVLA groups were 98.8% and 97.6%, respectively. In both the NBCA and EVLA groups, the post-procedure Venous Clinical Severity Score (VCSS) was significantly reduced with no difference between the groups. When NBCA treatment was compared with EVLA treatment, it was seen that there may be fewer side effects after NBCA treatment. Conclusion: When the treatment success rates, application times, complication rates and venous clinical severity scoring results in the data obtained in our study were evaluated, it was thought that the NBCA method was as successful and reliable as the EVLA method. In conclusion; It has been suggested that the vascular closure system with NBCA is a fast and effective treatment method in the treatment of saphenous vein insufficiency, as it does not require tumescent anesthesia, does not require compression stockings, and does not have the risk of paresthesia, burn scars or pigmentation.
