Preferred Treatment for Varicose Veins and CVI
The Venefit™ procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins and Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) in which one of the experienced doctors at Precision VIR inserts a Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Catheter to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally re-routes to healthy veins.
How Is the Venefit™ Procedure Performed?
A catheter is inserted into the vein through a tiny incision below the knee with under local anesthetic. In addition, lidocaine (tumescent) anesthesia is used to surround the vein to help collapse the vein around the catheter as well as provide anesthetic to reduce any discomfort. Most patients report no discomfort due to the tumescent insulating the vein during the radiofrequency treatment. Guided by ultrasound imaging, one of our physicians treats the abnormal segment of vein with radiofrequency energy, causing the vessel to shrink around the catheter. The physician withdraws the catheter, treating each segment until the entire length of the vein has been sealed.
Unlike painful vein stripping surgery or laser ablation, the catheter delivers uniform, consistent heat to each segment and temperatures do not exceed 120°C.1 As a result, the Venefit™ procedure causes less bruising and allows for rapid patient relief and recovery.
What Are the Benefits of Venefit™?
The Venefit™ procedure eliminates the need for groin surgery and general anesthesia. The procedure also results in little to no scarring and is performed using local anesthesia in the Precision VIR office or an outpatient surgical facility. In addition the procedure’s benefits include:
- Minimally Invasive
- Less Pain
- Less Bruising
- Faster Recovery
Excellent Clinical Outcomes
The ClosureFast catheter has been shown in a prospective, international multi-center study to be 93% effective at three years using Kaplan Meier analysis. The Venefit™ procedure is performed as a medical necessity as diagnosed by one of the vascular specialists at Precision VIR.
- Less pain, bruising and complications with the ClosureFast catheter
- Up to four times faster improvement in patients’ quality of life with ClosureFast catheter
- Return to normal activity and work significantly faster with the ClosureFast catheter in comparison to vein stripping
