The VNUS Closure™ procedure is minimally invasive treatment that is currently being offered at the Manchester Vein Clinic. This minimally invasive treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to provide an even and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and seal. Once the vein has been closed, blood flow is redirected, and will track up the healthy veins that are in the leg.
The VNUS Closure procedure can be performed on a walk-in walk out basis and under local anesthetic, allowing you to return to your normal activities the next day.
The ClosureFast™ catheter is inserted into the vein through a tiny incision below the knee. Guided by ultrasound imaging, the physician treats a 7 cm segment of vein with a 20-second burst of 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. An average 45 cm length vein can be treated in this manner in just three to five minutes.
- The procedure will be under local anaesthetic so you will be able to get back to your normal activities the same day and should not impact your daily activities
- It has been clinically proven to cause less pain, less bruising and with fewer complications compared to conventional surgery and laser
- There is long term data proving its efficacy with occlusion rates being at over 91% at 5 years
