Nowadays endovenous laser coagulation is the priority method of treatment of lower limb varicose vein disease. However, there are a number of specific complications that reduce efficiency of its usage. The objective of the research was to decrease specific postoperative complications after endovenous laser coagulation due to the introduction of its mathematical design. Materials and methods. The study included 168 patients with lower limb varicose vein disease. Prior to surgery the mathematical calculation of the basic parameters of laser coagulation such as density of laser irradiation and rate of reverse movement of the light pipe depending on the diameter of varicose veins was made. The control group consisted of 146 patients with varicose vein disease; the aforementioned parameters were established according to the instruction of using a laser device. Results. ?The analysis of complications such as induration of skin over coagulase great or small saphenous vein, phlebitis in the projection of the great or small saphenous vein, ecchymosis or dermatomelasma in the early postoperative period, pain syndrome showed the reduction in the number of complications while applying the mathematical model of calculation of linear density of laser radiation and the speed of reverse traction of the light pipe with its transfer to the graphic image. Conclusions. ?The application of the mathematical model of calculation of linear density of laser radiation and the speed of reverse traction of the light pipe with its transfer to the graphic image allows us to improve the results of endovenous laser coagulation for varicose veins due to the reduction in specific complications.
