Thermal Vein Closure


What is thermal vein closure?

Thermal vein closure has been the mainstay of minimally invasive vein treatment for nearly the past decade. The ClosureFast procedure is performed using a catheter that is equipped with a heating element and connected to a radiofrequency (RF) generator. Prior to activating the heating element, the saphenous compartment, which surrounds the vein, is filled with a liquid referred to as tumescent anesthesia. Tumescent anesthesia acts as a heat sink to protect surrounding tissue from excessive temperatures during treatment.

Is thermal vein closure clinically proven?

Good-quality evidence supports the use of the ClosureFast thermal ablation systems for long-term varicose vein closure. The VeClose study demonstrated complete vein closure in 97.0% of individuals treated with thermal ablation at one year following treatment,ᴬ and additional clinical studies reported similar results.
