If you are one of the 30 million people in the U.S. who suffer from varicose veins, you may have heard about Venefit, a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure for treating varicose veins and CVI (chronic venous insufficiency). Valley Vein Center (with locations in Phoenix, East Mesa, and Tempe) is one of just a few practices to offer Venefit in the East Valley area. Learn more below about four of the top benefits associated with choosing Venefit for varicose veins.
Outstanding Clinical Outcomes
First and foremost, Venefit has outstanding clinical outcomes. As an invasive cardiologist, the outcome or “success rate” of a procedure is one of the most important factors I consider when choosing to make a service available through my practice. A therapy can be safe, relatively painless, and easy to do… but if it doesn’t produce results for my patients, then I’m not interested.
Venefit is associated with excellent clinical outcomes, which is one reason why we offer it at Valley Vein Center. “The ClosureFast catheter [which is used to collapse and close varicose veins during the Venefit procedure] has been shown in a prospective, international multi-center study to be 93% effective at three years using Kaplan Meier analysis,” according to Covidien, the device’s manufacturer.
Less Pain and Bruising
nce effectiveness of the procedure is established, I’m interested in knowing if the proposed treatment for varicose veins improves the patient experience. In the case of Venefit, the answer is a resounding yes. Patients experience less pain, bruising and complications with the ClosureFast catheter. Most patients have little to no scarring.
The fact that Venefit for varicose veins is a minimally invasive procedure makes it easier and more convenient – for both you and your health care team.
Lastly, patients who have undergone Venefit with the ClosureFast catheter report four times faster improvement in quality of life compared to those who undergo a laser treatment for varicose veins. With Venefit, patients return to work and their normal activities significantly faster than if they had undergone a vein ligation procedure.
