Varicose Vein Treatment
Do you struggle with varicose veins? Over 30 million people
in the United States suffer from symptomatic venous
insufficiency, the underlying cause of varicose veins. Varicose
veins are often mistakenly thought to be only a cosmetic
condition when, in fact, they are usually a symptom of this
disease. This condition progressively damages the valves
of the saphenous vein and cosmetically disfigures the leg.
The ClosureFast Procedure featuring the ClosureFAST Catheter has
been the subject of an international multi-center trial.
This trial recently demonstrated a procedural efficacy of
over 95% at the two-year follow up. In another
international multi-center study, the RECOVERY Trial showed that
when compared to laser treatment, the Closure procedure has
significantly less patient pain and bruising with fewer adverse
events than laser. The ClosureFAST Catheter represents the
latest advancement in RF Technology from Medtronic, a company
built on a strong foundation of clinical data and
patient-centric approaches to treating venous disease.
More than 500,000 patients have been treated with the
ClosureFast procedure. The procedure is also covered by
most health insurance companies, which makes it an appealing
option for many patients.
