During EVLA procedures, the fiber is pulled back while light energy is delivered by a 360 degree radial fiber to the wall of the targeted vein. The light energy is absorbed by the lining of the blood vessel.
Alma’s unique robotic pullback gives providers the ability to automate control of the lasing process. The automatic pullback mechanism actively overcomes vein locking and providers continuous, real-time feedback to the main unit for monitoring the pullback speed and distance.
The pullback speed is adjustable for one to four nm / second. The “pull and cool” feature allows for pre-set breaks at 1cm intervals.
Quick Seal & Heal – The Alma Radial Advantage
Alma’s Angel™ (360 degree) radial fiber delivers 1470 nm laser energy directly into the venous wall ensuring homogenous ablation, immediate sealing of the vein and faster wound healing. Once the diseased vein is sealed off, blood is re-routed to other healthy veins
For treating different size veins Alma’s radial emission fibers provide easiest access for even the most difficult veins.
- Single use sterile disposable radial emission fiber
- 400 micron radial emission fiber
- 600 micron radial emission fiber
Radial covered Tip Fiber to Maximize Safety
Bare fibers require a higher level of energy to achieve good results. The increased energy can cause serious problems such as charring the vein wall and other adverse effects.
VascuLife features a radial covered tip, maximizing visibility under ultrasound and requiring lower levels of energy to achieve the desired outcome. The result is less focal charring and a minimized risk of adverse side effects.
