Get Relief Through an Easy Outpatient Procedure
ClosureFast is a minimally invasive treatment procedure that can promise less pain and bruising than traditional vein-stripping surgery and laser treatment. Using this procedure, providers close diseased veins by inserting a ClosureFast catheter into a vein and heating the wall using temperature-controlled RF energy.
Heating the wall of the vein causes collagen in the wall to shrink, causing the vein to close. After the vein is sealed, blood naturally reroutes to healthy veins. Let the professionals at the Vein Clinic inform you about what you need to know regarding this treatment. This process is commonly used for varicose veins, which will not disappear without treatment.
Learn About Treatment Steps
First, we’ll use an ultrasound to scan your legs and your physician will determine if superficial venous reflux is present. Then, closure catheters are inserted into the vein using a small incision in the lower leg. This can be done using a local anesthetic in a physician’s office, or in an outpatient hospital or surgical center.
As treatment with ClosureFast is minimally invasive and catheter-based, it results in little-to-no scarring. Please review the safety information associated with the procedure by consulting your provider.
Finally, after the procedure is performed, a bandage is placed on the insertion site, with additional compression optionally provided to aid healing. You may be discouraged to walk and to refrain from extended standing or taking part in strenuous activities.
