Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure used in the treatment of venous reflux disease. Under ultrasound guidance, radiofrequency energy is transmitted to the vein through a catheter. The energy from the catheter permanently correcting the problem.
Laser treatment for varicose veins or EVLT uses an ultrasound to guide a thin laser fiber through a diseased vein. The laser collapses the vein, permanently sealing it and eliminating the source of the problem.
VenaSeal™ Closure System
VenaSeal™ closure system permanently seals varicose veins with an advanced medical adhesive dispensed from a catheter. The doctor guides the catheter by ultrasound through the varicose vein, administering adhesive and applying pressure as it goes.
Foam sclerotherapy uses small injections of a sclerosing or sealing agent directly into the diseased vein under the guidance of ultrasound. The agent causes the diseased vein to shrink up and close or 'sclerose', restoring a healthier blood flow and eliminating unsightly or painful veins.
All vein treatments are usually less than one hour long and
have minimal recovery time.
Although a local anesthetic is given, patients can engage in light activity and return to work immediately after treatment. It is also recommended that compression stockings are worn for a few days.
