What is Radiofrequency Closure (RF)
Radiofrequency ablation (or RFA) is a procedure used to reduce pain. An electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area.
At Vein Center of Arizona patient safety is a priority and thus we would never use a reusable catheter. We use only single-use throwaway catheters at all of our facilities. This may increase our cost but we think you are worth every penny.
Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy
The most precise and effective radiofrequency (RF) ablation treatment for Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)
The Venefit™ procedure is the only minimally invasive segmental radiofrequency (RF) ablation treatment that uses the Covidien ClosureFast™ Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Catheter to collapse and close enlarged leg veins in patients with varicose veins and Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). Varicose veins occur when valves in the leg veins, which carry the blood from the legs toward the heart, no longer function, causing blood to pool in the legs.
Venefit Procedure was Previously called the ClosureFast procedure
Progressive and Prevalent
Given the prevailing misconception that varicose veins are only a cosmetic issue, the majority of the over 30 million Americans affected by varicose veins or CVI do not seek or receive treatment. If varicose veins are left untreated, the condition can progress to CVI and result in symptoms that worsen over time, including pain, swelling, and fatigue of the legs, as well as skin changes and ulcers in more severe cases.
With only a fraction of those suffering from varicose veins and CVI actually undergoing treatment, there is a huge opportunity for physicians to help patients understand their condition and their treatment options.
Advanced Treatment Solutions
In recent years, treatment options for CVI have advanced far beyond invasive procedures like vein stripping and ligation. With the Venefit procedure, patients experience less pain and bruising, and a faster recovery period compared to laser ablation. Physicians can feel confident that a better patient experience is part of the Venefit procedure.
