How is ClosureRFS in Houston Performed?
The goal of this procedure is to target the perforator veins, which are those veins that connect the deep veins with the shallower saphenous veins. The ClosureRFS Stylet is the only FDA-approved endovenous device for the treatment of diseased, incompetent perforator veins. Through a small opening in the skin, your vein doctor positions the ClosureFast™ Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) catheter into the diseased vein, using ultrasound image-guidance. Once the catheter is in place, the vein is numbed completely before radiofrequency (RF) energy is delivered through the catheter via the ClosureRFS stylet. The heat causes the vein walls to grow together and eventually become scar tissue, which will then be reabsorbed by the body.
What Can I Expect After ClosureRFS?
Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is rerouted to other healthy veins. Following the procedure, a simple bandage is placed over the insertion site, and additional compression is applied. You will be encouraged to walk at frequent intervals and to refrain from prolonged standing and strenuous activities for a period of time.
