The VNUS Closure is a relatively new procedure designed to treat varicose veins. Traditionally, patients undergo painful varicose vein stripping surgery. This new procedure utilizes radiofrequency waves generated by an electrode to close the vein by heating the vein wall causing contraction of the vein. The VNUS Closure procedure has little or no discomfort associated with it with a high degree of success.
During a VNUS closure procedure, a doctor will use a patented VNUS catheter. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy into the damaged vein, causing it to heat up, seal off and eventually disintegrate. This procedure is typically performed while the patient is under local anesthesia, so no pain is experienced when the vein is treated.
