Varicose Veins & Chronic Venous Insufficiency
ClosureFast™ Targeted Endovenous Treatment
The traditional treatment of varicose veins included surgery in the operating room with venous ligation and stripping. This was accompanied by significant patient discomfort, leg bruising, pain and delayed recovery. Surgery has, for the most part, been replaced by minimally invasive venous ablation procedures, which are performed in the office setting. Closure of refluxing superficial veins is achieved using Radio Frequency Ablation. Studies using the ClosureFast™ catheter have shown, less pain, fewer complications, better quality of life and nearly 95% reflux free rate at 5 years follow-up.
The ClosureFast™ procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) in which a vein specialist inserts a ClosureFast™ endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) catheter to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally re-routes to healthy veins. Unlike painful vein stripping surgery, the catheter delivers uniform, consistent heat to each segment and temperatures do not exceed 120° C. As a result, the ClosureFast™ procedure causes less bruising and allows for rapid patient relief and recovery. The ClosureFast™ procedure is performed in our office.
Real Treatments, Real Results
Most patients report having limited to no scarring, bruising, or swelling following the procedure and many patients feel very little to no pain during the ClosureFast™ procedure. Our surgeon will give a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area.
