ELVeS Radial fiber is an atraumatic fiber probe developed by biolitec in 2008. It is characterized by a tiny outer diameter. The dual-phase radiation with the ELVeS Radial 2ring fiber is the best choice for a perfect result for experienced physicians and beginners. This allows safe closure of the vein with a low energy density in order to minimize collateral damage to surrounding tissue.
What is Elves Radial Fiber?
ELVeS Radial Fibers is a laser fiber developed by Biolitec that is used for endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) of varicose veins. It is characterized by a very small outer diameter of only 1.2 mm and splits the energy into two rings, When using this laser fiber, the energy is split into two rings, allowing safe closure of the vein with a low energy density in one movement.
The 1470 nm wavelength laser improves mid-term success rates after EVLA and is delivered sterile for immediate use.
Other benefits include an additional canal into which saline solution can be injected directly up to the tip of the fibre, as well as ease of handling and key safety factors for physicians.
The procedure minimizes any post-operative inflammatory pain and bruising due to its 40 times or greater absorption coefficient.
The SLIM ELVeS Radial fibres provides several key benefits for endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) of varicose veins. It applies energy faster and more accurately than any other fiber available in the market, allowing strongly restricted veins to be stretched and the ELVeS Radial 2ring Pro fiber to be inserted further in one movement.
How Is Elves Radial Fiber Produced?
The ELVeS Radial fiber is produced by Biolitec AG and is equipped with a safety marking for optimal control of the pullback process in conjunction with their ELVeS signal generator. The fiber has a very small external diameter of 1.2/1.5 mm and is introduced via conventional 16 GA or 14 GA indwelling catheters into the vein. The laser energy is split into two rings, allowing safe closure of the vein with a low energy density. In combination with the ELVeS Radial Laser System, this unique fibre elves system divides the laser power into two equal portions of 50% strength. This allows for more precise treatment and less pain at the site of treatment.

Steps in the Production of Elves Radial Fiber
The production of ELVeS Radial fiber involves several steps.
- The fiber is made from a special type of glass that is designed to be able to transmit laser energy.
- The fiber is then coated with a protective coating to ensure that it is safe for use in medical procedures.
- The fiber is tested for quality and safety before being packaged and shipped to medical facilities.
- Once at the facility, the fiber is sterilized and prepared for use in endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) of varicose veins.
Additional preparation and sterilization are not permitted as this may cause high potential risks.
Benefits of Using Elves Radial Fiber
The ELVeS Radial fibre is designed to be safe, painless, and effective for endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) of varicose veins. The fiber is equipped with safety markings for optimal control of the pullback process in conjunction with the ELVeS signal software. The steam produced by the blood’s absorption of the laser energy is quickly dissipated, thus reducing the risk of tissue damage. Additionally, side branch varicose veins can be treated safely and effectively using this fiber
The ELVeS Radial fiber provides several advantages when used for endovenous laser ablation. These include:
- avoidance of additional punctures in complex vein progressions.
- stretching of the vein wall to ensure a better seal.
- Easier access to veins due to its small outer diameter of 1.2mm.
- less postoperative pain and better cosmetic results.
- low-risk treatment due to the unique FUSION technology.
- safe closure of the vein with a low energy density in two rings.
- ease of handling and key safety factors for the physician.
ELVeS Radial fiber price
The ELVeS Radial Fiber is available at a price of $ 302/ Packet. It is a patented radial emitting laser fiber used for endovenous laser treatments of the Greater Saphenous Vein. It has a dual-phase radiation with the ELVeS Radial 2ring fiber which provides the best choice for a perfect result.
EVLA using the ELVeS Radial fiber is safe and effective in treating varicose veins. The radial fiber was found to minimize adverse effects compared to bare-tip laser, with no deep venous thrombosis or skin burn reported.
