Are You Considering Venefit™

Are You Considering Venefit™If you are living with varicose veins consult your Vein Specialist. They may recommend the Venefit™ procedure. It is a minimally invasive treatment designed specifically for varicose veins as well as Chronic Venous Insufficiency. During the procedure, your vein specialist will insert a Covidien ClosureFast™ endovenous radiofrequency ablation catheter. This will help to collapse and close enlarged damaged leg veins. When damaged areas of veins are sealed shut, the blood then naturally is forced to reroute itself to the surrounding healthy veins.

How does it work?

A catheter is inserted into the vein through a small incision just below the knee. The catheter is guided through use of ultrasound imaging. During the procedure, the doctor treats each 7 cm segment of vein with a quick 20-second blast of radiofrequency energy. This causes the vessel to shrink around the catheter. This is repeated and continued along the vein for the length of the damage. The treatment is quite fast.

Performed in a clinic or same day setting, his catheterization method delivers a consistent source of heat to each area. Temperatures do not exceed 240° F. The result is less bruising and rapid patient recovery. Venefit™ is minimally invasive and eliminates the need for general anesthesia. It leaves little to no scarring.

When compared to traditional laser treatment

• Less pain, bruising and complications

• Up to four times faster improvement and healing

Studies have shown that patients undergoing the Venefit™ procedure returned to work much faster than those who had vein stripping done.

The Results Speak for Themselves

The Venefit™ procedure is performed only as a medical necessity as diagnosed by a trained vein specialist. While it is not intended to fix cosmetic issues the successful treatment of CVI using the Venefit™ procedure can produce improvements visually.

As with any medical procedure, you should consult your vein specialist and review all safety information associated with any procedure.
