The Closure procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Using ultrasound, your physician will position the ClosureFast catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin. The tiny catheter powered by radiofrequency (RF) energy delivers heat to the vein wall. As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and the vein is sealed closed. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re-routed to other healthy veins.

Traditionally, patients diagnosed with venous reflux would undergo vein stripping surgery. During Vein Stripping, incisions are made in the groin and calf and a stripper tool is threaded through the diseased vein, to pull the vein out of the leg. Now, patients can be treated with the VNUS Closure Procedure - a minimally invasive and more comfortable alternative to painful vein stripping. surgery.
