The ASVAL method
A new innovative method of treatment
The ASVAL method (Selective Ablation of Varicose Veins under Local Anesthesia) was developed in the early 2000s as a result of research by Dr. Pittaluga’s team, which was dissatisfied with the systematic nature of the traditional treatment represented by stripping :
The ASVAL method is now recognized by experts around the world as a fully-fledged option for the treatment of varicose veins in the most common cases.
However, it can only be practiced with a high level of expertise in order to determine which patients can benefit from it. It is important to note that the earlier the varicose veins are treated, the more likely it is that the ASVAL method will be chosen, with excellent results in the medium and long term.
Dr. Pittaluga’s team at the Riviera Vein Institute was the first to describe and give the name to the ASVAL method, which was registered in 2003 (INPI). Since then, nearly 8,000 procedures have been performed by the Riviera Vein Institut team using this method with complete satisfaction from patients and corresponding general practitioners, angio-phlebologists and other specialist.
The Riviera Vein Institute now offers this modern and effective method in Paris with the establishment of the Paris Vein Institute directed by Dr. Pittaluga !
