Abstract: Objective Ablation with n-butyl cyanoacrylate is a clinically newer technique than endovenous laser ablation and other interventional techniques in the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). The aim of this study was to compare the endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and n-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) interventional techniques in terms of benefit, effectiveness, and patient satisfaction. Materials and Methods The study was conducted at Yozgat City Hospital and Bozok University Research Hospital Cardiovascular Surgery clinics between November 2016 and February 2021. A total of 260 symptomatic patients with 130 randomized cases in each intervention group were included. NBCA patients constituted Group 1 and EVLA patients Group 2. The saphenous vein was evaluated by color Doppler ultrasonography (CDUS) of the lower extremity. Patients with saphenous veins over 5.5 mm in diameter and a saphenous-femoral reflux time of 2 s or longer were included in the study. The patients were asked about their satisfaction and symptoms in the first postoperative week during an outpatient clinic follow-up with CDUS investigation at the first and sixth months. Results Although vena saphenous magna (VSM) closure results were similar with the two methods, satisfaction rates were found to be higher with the NBCA procedure. Conclusion Comparison of the new methods used in the treatment of CVI revealed similar VSM closure rates in the two methods, but the satisfaction rate was higher with the NBCA technique in this study.
