VNUSThe ClosureFast™ procedure, an alternative treatment option to traditional vein stripping surgery, brings state-of-the-art technology to an age-old disease.The closure procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Using ultrasound guidance, the catheter is positioned into the diseased vein.

The slender catheter delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy  which heats the vein wall. This causes the collagen in the vein wall to shrink and the vein to close. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re-routed to other healthy veins.

Following the procedure, a simple bandage is placed over the insertion site, and additional compression may be provided to aid healing. You will be encouraged to walk at frequent intervals and to refrain from prolonged standing and strenuous activities for a period of time.

Patients who undergo the closure procedure typically resume normal activities within a day.
