Do You Have Varicose Veins or Experience Leg Pain and Fatigue?
You may have venous reflux disease.
Venous reflux disease develops when the vein valves that keep blood flowing from your legs to your heart become damaged
or diseased. This can cause blood to pool in your legs and result in dilated or varicose veins.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF VENOUS REFLUX DISEASE
- VARICOSE VEINS
- LEG OR ANKLE SWELLING
- LEG HEAVINESS OR FATIGUE
- LEG PAIN, ACHING, OR CRAMPING
- BURNING OR ITCHING OF THE SKIN
- RESTLESS LEGS
- SKIN CHANGES OR RASHES
- ULCERS, OPEN WOUNDS, OR SORES
The ClosureFast procedure is a minimally invasive treatment and alternative to traditional vein stripping. The small catheter, powered by radiofrequency energy, delivers controlled heat to the vein wall. As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and is sealed closed. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood reroutes to other healthy veins.
Relief of symptoms usually begins after 2 days and most patients resume normal activities within a few days.
