Endovenous Treatment for Venous Leg Ulcers

THERMAL ABLATION
A PROVEN SOLUTION FOR PATIENTS WITH LOWER EXTREMITY ULCERS

In addition to standard compression therapy, 2014 SVS/AVF venous leg ulcer guidelines mention ablation to prevent recurrence and improve ulcer healing.

  • Ablation uses controlled heat to close off the abnormal vein and is a standard of care for patients with venous leg ulcers.1
  • Ablation is minimally invasive and is not an open surgical procedure, eliminating the need for surgery and allowing patients to quickly resume normal activity.2

Clinical evidence demonstrates a significant change in ulcer size and healing rate from pre-to post-ablation.

VENOUS DISEASE TREATMENT OPTIONS

The ClosureFastTM Procedure and VenaSealTM Closure System

The ClosureFastTM procedure uses radiofrequency ablation to precisely and effectively treat patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).3  Five-year trial results demonstrated a 91.9% occlusion rate, and a 94.9% reflux free rate with the ClosureFastTM catheter.3,4*

The ClosureRFS™ Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation Stylet is the only intravascular ablation device specifically intended for the treatment of incompetent perforator and tributary veins.  This minimally invasive outpatient procedure leaves minimal scarring at the puncture site and can be either the primary treatment or an adjunct treatment using the ClosureFast™ catheter.

The VenaSealTM closure system uses a proprietary medical adhesive to treat symptomatic venous reflux.  It delivers improved patient comfort and rapid return to normal activities for patients with venous reflux disease.5-8**  The VenaSealTM closure system is minimally invasive and catheter-based.  As such, it may contain potential risks.  Click here to understand more about these potential risks.
