Blood pooling in the legs caused by Vein Malfunction is a problem for many of our patients. Venous insufficiency is a condition characterized by blocked blood flow through the veins. Varicose veins make patients feel less attractive and can sometimes be painful. To provide patients with a quick and easy treatment solution, our doctor performs endovenous radiofrequency (EVRF) vein ablation procedures using ClosureFast.
A ClosureFast Procedure
Our doctor performs a minimally invasive ClosureFast procedure on an outpatient basis. The procedure is popular because it is quick, usually only 45-60 minutes, and provides excellent results. Important procedure steps include the following:
- Ultrasound guidance is used to insert a catheter into a varicose vein
- The doctor advances the catheter to the segment of the vein that is causing blood to pool
- Anesthesia is delivered to the vein to increase patient comfort and maximize results
- The ClosureFast portable generator delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein.
Once the vein is heated to 120 degrees Celsius, it closes and blood is redirected to other veins. The patient returns home shortly after the procedure and returns to normal physical activities within a few days.
Our patients love ClosureFast because it provides excellent and long-lasting results. One to three weeks after the procedure, patients see dramatic improvements in the appearance of varicose veins. Final results are seen when post-procedure swelling completely subsides. Results last up to five years.
EVFR vein ablation therapy has replaced vein stripping and laser therapy as the most effective treatment option for varicose veins. Key advantages EVFR has over these other treatment options include the following:
- Ideal incision location. Below the knee, rather than in the groin.
- Quicker recovery. Less discomfort, bruising and swelling.
- Longer-lasting results. Up to five years.
Patients who have their procedure performed by one of our doctors can look forward to receiving maximum results. All procedures are customized to meet the specific needs of each patient.
