VNUS Closure-Fast (Radiofrequency ablation)

  • Vnus Closurefast

The VNUS Closure (radiofrequency ablation) method has revolutionised the treatment of varicose veins. Varicose veins can now be treated on a 'walk-in-walk-out' basis with prompt return to normal activity. The procedure is easily performed under local anaesthetic.

What is VNUS Closure-Fast (Radiofrequency ablation)?

The VNUS Closure (radiofrequency ablation) method of treating varicose veins uses energy in the form of radiofrequency waves to heat and destroy the faulty vein in the thigh which is the cause of most varicose veins.  It is performed in much the same way as endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) only with less post-operative pain and bruising.  The results are excellent, with only very minimal post op discomfort and return to work and normal activity in as little as 24 hours.

How does it work?

VNUS Closure is more effective than the more traditional Endovenous laser treatment, with less pain. 

Are there any risks I should be aware of?

There is likely to be some bruising and there is a very low risk of recurrence of problem veins, deep vein thrombosis or infection.
