Radiofrequency Occlusion is an alternative to surgical stripping of certain underlying veins that are the source of surface varicose veins and venous insufficiency. Radiofrequency occlusion presents a valid alternative to traditional methods of varicose vein surgery, ligation and stripping. This patented technique known as the Closure Procedure directly heats the inner lining of the diseased vein using a radiofrequency (RF) catheter instead of a laser filament. A small catheter is inserted, usually through a needle stick in the skin, into the damaged vein. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat. As the vein warms, it collapses and seals shut. The procedure is generally done in an outpatient or in-office setting.
Radiofrequency Occlusion - Closure™ Procedure
The Closure™ Procedure is a minimally invasive ambulatory treatment alternative to surgical stripping of the great saphenous vein. A small catheter is inserted, usually through a needle-stick in the skin, into the damaged vein. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy to the vein wall causing it to heat. As the vein warms it collapses and seals.
The Vein Institute of New Jersey is one of the world authorities on this technique. The doctors at the Vein Institute of New Jersey perform this procedure under local anesthesia, usually in less than one hour. The patient leaves for home after Closure™ in about 30 minutes, able to resume normal activities.
