Tri-City Vein Center
The Tri-City Vein Center specializes in treating the cause of venous disease. Our board-certified Vascular physicians have years of experience providing the proper diagnosis and recommending the best treatment plan for the individual patient for optimal clinical outcomes. Approximately 25 million Americans suffer from venous disease, a condition which often results in varicose veins and symptoms including pain, swelling, leg fatigue, ulcers, etc. As you may know, this can have a significant effect on a person’s lifestyle.
What is Venous Reflux Disease?
With venous reflux disease, the valves inside the vein do not function properly, thus blood flow is reversed causing pooling or swelling in the veins. This results in varicose veins that can be painful, swollen, and tender.
What is the Vnus Closure ® procedure?
One treatment option is the Vnus Closure ® procedure or venous ablation. It is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional vein stripping for patients with superficial venous reflux, an underlying cause of varicose veins. We at Tri-City Cardiology are pleased to offer this treatment to those individuals suffering from symptoms associated with varicose veins.
The VNUS Closure procedure uses a small catheter to seal the vein shut through a single small incision. The patient can usually return to normal activities within a day. Best of all, once a defective saphenous vein is sealed shut or “occluded,” blood flow immediately diverts to healthy veins. Like any interventional procedure, the VNUS Closure® procedure involves risks and potential complications. You should consult your doctor to determine whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure, and if your conditions present any special risks.
