The ClosureFast procedure uses controlled and consistent heat to close the diseased vein to provide:
The ClosureFast procedure is performed on an outpatient basis.
Following the procedure, a simple bandage is placed over the insertion site, and additional compression may be provided to aid healing. Your doctor may encourage you to walk, and to refrain from extended standing and strenuous activities for a period of time. The average patient typically resumes normal activities within a few days.1
Over 2 million patients have been treated with the ClosureFast procedure in over 100 countries around the world.
Improved Clinical Outcomes Compared to Compression Therapy Alone
Individual results may vary.
NOTE: These patients were treated with the ClosureFast procedure and maintained compression.
