How is the ClosureFast™ procedure different from vein stripping?

During vein stripping, incisions are made in the groin and leg, and a stripper is threaded through the diseased vein to pull the vein out of the leg. With the ClosureFast™ procedure, only one small incision is made at the catheter insertion site and the vein is then treated and left in place. This minimally invasive approach reduces the likelihood of pain and bruising associated with vein stripping surgery.

How is the ClosureFast™ procedure different from endovenous laser?

Although the ClosureFast™ procedure and 980nm endogenous laser ablation are both minimally invasive procedures, a comparative, multi-center study showed that the ClosureFast™ procedure was associated with statistically significant lower rates of pain, bruising and complications. Patients undergoing the ClosureFast™ procedure also reported improvements in quality of life measures up to four times faster than patients treated with 980nm endovenous laser ablation.

How soon after treatment will my symptoms improve?

Most patients report a noticeable improvement in their symptoms within 1-2 weeks following the procedure.

Is the ClosureFast™ procedure painful?

Most patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the ClosureFast™ procedure. Your physician should give you a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area.

How quickly can I resume normal activity?

Patients treated with the ClosureFast™ procedure may resume normal activities more quickly than patients who undergo surgical vein stripping. With the ClosureFast™ procedure, the average patient typically resumes normal activities within the next day. For a few weeks following the treatment, your vein specialist may recommend a regular walking regimen and suggest you refrain from very strenuous activities (heavy lifting, for example) or prolonged periods of standing.
