The VNUS ClosureFAST Catheter, Pittsburgh
Our Board Certified Vein Surgeons are always “one step ahead” in the treatment of vein disease. After evaluating EVLT, endovenous laser treatment, versus RF vein ablation, our physicians found that although both EVLT and Closure RF ablation had similar efficacy in double blind randomized studies (over 95%), patient satisfaction was higher after Radio frequency vein ablation. The next generation RF closure vein procedures has less bruising and tenderness than similar laser vein surgery.
Our facility is proud to announce the availability of the VNUS ClosureFAST catheter for the treatment of varicose veins in pittsburgh and surrounding area. No more is there a need for ancient painful vein stripping procedures..The last generation VNUS ClosureFAST catheter was introduced and received FDA clearance in August 2006. We have the latest generation made available in 2015 and is a culmination of years of research and development.
The ClosureFAST catheter is designed to significantly reduce procedure time and enhance ease-of-use for the physician, making it the most comfortable vein treatment available for our patients. Like the original VNUS Closure catheter, the ClosureFAST catheter uses Radio Frequency energy and VNUS RF generators to deliver controlled energy and monitor treatment temperature for the purpose of closing diseased veins gently.
