At IVY Cardiovascular and Vein Center we use the next-generation of endovenous radiofrequency ablation.

The VENCLOSE procedure is the latest heat-based treatment option for chronic venous insufficiency, a common cause of varicose veins.

The VENCLOSE Procedure

Radiofrequency Ablation Diagram

1. Your doctor will insert a small catheter into the diseased vein

2. The catheter will deliver heat, causing the diseased vein to shrink and close.

3. The catheter is slowly withdrawn to treat the entire diseased vein.

Once treatment is completed, blood flow will naturally reroute to nearby healthy veins.

Your doctor will apply a bandage and may recommend compression to help the healing.

Things to Know

Radiofrequency ablation can provide lasting benefits for patients suffering from chronic venous insufficiency.

Radiofrequency Ablation Recovery

Patients can also leave the outpatient facility following their procedure. The patient can experience mild discomfort for around fourteen days. There is little downtime required, and patients can resume their daily activities.
