The Venefit Procedure, also known as VNUS Closure is an alternative treatment option to traditional vein stripping surgery, brings state-of-the-art technology to the age-old disease, varicose veins.
The Venefit Procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Using ultrasound guidance, the physician will position a catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin. The slender catheter delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the catheter, which heats the vein wall. As the vein wall is heated and the catheter withdrawn, the collagen in the wall shrinks and the vein closes. 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 Venefit procedure typically resume normal activities within a day.
