RTC: Early Intervention Speeds Venous-Ulcer Healing


The 2018 Early Venous Reflux Ablation (EVRA) trial evaluated the role of early endovenous treatment of superficial venous reflux as an adjunct to compression therapy in patients with venous leg ulcers.

  • Chronic venous insufficiency overloads the lymphatic system and can lead to permanent lymphatic damage and spiraling complications.
  • Early intervention (endovenous ablation) speeds venous-ulcer healing.
