Introduce your Patients to Relief

The ClosureFast™ procedure utilizes segmental radiofrequency ablation to deliver uniform heat to close the vein.  Once sealed, blood is directed to nearby healthy veins.  The ClosureFast™ procedure has been rigorously tested and proven across multiple studies1,2 and patients.

The VenaSeal™ closure system is a non-tumescent, non-thermal, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a proprietary medical adhesive delivered endovenously to close the vein.  The VenaSeal™ closure system was shown to be effective in three clinical studies, with demonstrated safety and high closure rates.3-7
