The VENCLOSE™ Procedure - Restore Healthy Blood Flow

The VENCLOSE System is the latest, heat-based treatment option for chronic venous insufficiency. Find relief by closing diseased veins. This system has the following benefits:

    • Minimally invasive, outpatient procedure
    • Smaller catheter entry site
    • Proven technology

Is the Procedure Painful?

Most patients report feeling little to no pain during the radio-frequency ablation procedure. Your doctor will give you a local or regional anesthetic to numb the treatment area.

How Soon After Treatment will my Symptoms Improve?

Most patients can notice a difference within the first 24 hours. Symptoms may continue to improve 1-2 weeks after the procedure.

When can I Return to Normal Activities?

Typically, patients can resume normal activities within a few days of the procedure. For a few weeks after the procedure, your doctor may recommend a regular walking schedule and discourage strenuous activities like heavy lifting or prolonged periods of time sitting or standing.

The VENCLOSE Procedure

1. Your doctor will insert a small catheter into the diseased vein.

2. The catheter will deliver heat, causing the diseased vein to shrink and close.

3. The catheter is slowly withdrawn to treat the entire diseased vein.

Once treatment is completed, blood flow will naturally reroute to nearby healthy veins. Your doctor will apply a bandage and may recommend compression to help the healing.

Is the VENCLOSE Procedure Covered by Insurance?

Most insurance plans provide partial or full coverage for most vein conditions. Office personnel can help in the preauthorization process with your insurance provider prior to treatment.
