Varicose Veins Treatment
A SOLUTION TO LEG PAIN AND VARICOSE VEINS
The Canasi Medical Institute uses the Venefit™ procedure (formerly called VNUS Closure™), or endogenous radio frequency ablation, to treat vein disease. We have chosen this procedure because it is clinically proven to be an effective means of treating varicose veins and their underlying cause, venous reflux. It is a minimally invasive procedure with less pain and less bruising compared to traditional vein stripping surgery and laser treatment. Using the Venefit™ system, physicians close the diseased or damaged vein. This is done by inserting a catheter into a vein and heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled radio-frequency energy. Heating the vein wall causes collagen in the wall to shrink and the vein to close. After the vein is sealed shut, blood naturally reroutes to healthy veins and the body dissolves the closed vein over time. The procedure is done in the office, takes about 15 minutes, and patients walk away from the procedure and typically return to their normal activities within a day. Venefit™ uses two types of instruments to close the vein, the ClosureFAST™ Catheter and the ClosureRFS™ Stylet. The Canasi Medical Center will determine which is right for each patient based on the type of vein disease you have.
Venefit™ using the ClosureFAST Catheter
The Venefit™ procedure is the newest procedure for treating superficial veins with venous reflux disease. Venefit™ uses The ClosureFAST™ catheter with either a 6.5 cm or 3 cm electrode to generate radiofrequency waves to heat and collapse the vein wall. The catheter is used to close the greater saphenous vein, lesser saphenous vein or the shorter access branches off these veins.
