Klippel Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a complex congenital malformation that may affect the lower or upper extremities or, less commonly, involve the trunk, head, or neck. The three main components of KTS are varicosities and venous malformations (VMs), capillary malformations (port-wine stains), and hypertrophy of the soft tissue and bone. Management of varicosities in KTS patients is generally conservative. The role of endovascular therapy and minimally invasive intervention has not been widely practiced due to the low prevalence of the disease, but is preferred over open surgery, especially when non operative management is refractory. This case report is aimed to describe our minimally invasive procedure, Endovascular laser ablation for treatment of Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome. A female, 24 years old came to hospital with chief complaint of swelling and pain on her leg. She was diagnosed with Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome and we performed Endovascular Laser Ablation to manage her varicosities. Endovascular laser ablation is one of the semi-invasive interventions of persistent embryonic vein or great saphenous vein that is currently popular with high success rate.
