Presented herein is the authors’ experience with surgical treatment of 85 lower extremities by means of endovasal laser coagulation. Shown are the energy-related characteristics of coagulation, followed by analysing the causes of unsatisfactory poor outcomes therapeutic as exemplified on their own experience. Proposed is an adequate selection of energy-related parameters of laser radiation in order to obtain stable occlusion. Given are the literature data on using the method concerned, with a detailed discussion of various points of view on the problem concerning selection of an efficient dose of the laser energy in order to attain adequate occlusion.

KEY WORDS: endovasal laser coagulation, effective dose of laser energy J/cm2 and J/cm2, coloured duplex scanning.
