RF energy delivered via the VNUS Closure® System, is a safe, proven and minimally invasive cutting edge treatment of superficial venous reflux and varicose veins. Radiofrequency creates conductive heating that occludes the diseased vein by contracting the vein wall. The procedure uses a catheter which is inserted via a single needle stick. Compared with laser ablation, radiofrequency varicose vein treatment is associated with significantly less pain, tenderness, bruising and fewer adverse events.
Radiofrequency energy delivered via the VNUS ClosureRFS™ System, is the only FDA approved device for the ablation of incompetent perforator veins found in 63% of venous ulcer patients. Perforator veins connect the deep vein with the superficial vein systems. Reflux in perforators, particularly in the lower leg and ankle, produce higher venous pressure and dilation with more varicose vein formation in the superficial system and an increased likelihood of edema, skin discoloration, dermatitis and venous stasis ulcers. Just like laser ablation, VNUS ClosureRFS treatment is a quick, out-patient procedure that is highly effective and associated with a rapid recovery.
When you come to VSA for vein treatment, radiofrequency technology as well as laser ablation techniques may be used alone or in combination based on your individual needs. Radiofrequency varicose vein treatment or leg ulcer treatment may be the best choice but that will be determined based on your screening exam.
