Venefit - thermal endovenous (radiofrequency ) ablation

VeneFit is a procedure used to treat clinically insufficient saphenous veins.

TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY

The Venefit procedure offers patients an efficient, non-surgical alternative for treating varicose veins to improve the skin’s appearance and to reduce health risks related to large varicose veins. Venefit is a state-of-the-art varicose vein treatment that harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to eliminate problematic varicose veins.

Venefit Targeted Endovenous Therapy is minimally invasive, making it an attractive option for patients and doctors alike. During the procedure, radiofrequency energy applies even, uniform heat to vein walls. This causes the collagen molecules to break down, leading to a collapse of the veins. Following the Venefit procedure, the varicose veins are sealed off and reabsorbed into the body. Meanwhile, the body redirects blood flow to healthier veins, restoring optimal vascular functioning. The Venefit Procedure does not require surgery nor the removal of the vein. It is performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia. In some cases, this procedure is performed in conjunction with Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy.

  • Fast recovery. Recovery from Venefit is very fast, with many patients resuming their normal activities the next day. Talk to your vascular surgeon about any limitations on your everyday activities following the procedure.
  • Lower risk of complications. The Venefit procedure is notable for its low risk of complications, meaning that you can feel confident in the positive outcomes.

BENEFITS & RESULTS

  • It leaves little or no scarring. Use of radiofrequency energy means no incisions. While other forms of varicose vein treatment require small incisions to be made, Venefit employs radiofrequency energy that penetrates skin to collapse veins. This means that there is no need for stitches or incision care following the procedure. Plus, there are no surgical scars related to the procedure. When you’ve completed your treatment, you’ll be pleased to see that Venefit vein treatment results in little or no scarring, keeping your skin smooth, attractive and free of varicose veins.
  • It is minimally invasive. Unlike other interventions that require more significant surgical intervention, Venefit is minimally invasive. Most patients report little or no pain, and vein doctors find that it is well tolerated by patients of all ages.
  • It is highly effective. Harnessing the power of radiofrequency energy ensures that unsightly varicose veins will be eliminated. Venefit is one of the most effective procedures available on the market today, making it a top choice among patients with chronic venous insufficiency.
  • Low levels of bruising. Bruising is a risk of any vein treatment, but it is minimized during the Venefit procedure. Patients may expect a small amount of bruising that goes away after a few days or weeks.
  • Fast recovery. Recovery from Venefit is very fast, with many patients resuming their normal activities the next day. Talk to your vascular surgeon about any limitations on your everyday activities following the procedure.
  • Lower risk of complications. The Venefit procedure is notable for its low risk of complications, meaning that you can feel confident in the positive outcomes.

PROCEDURE DETAILS

Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation with the intrinsic need for tumescent local anesthesia takes between 45 to 60 minutes per leg.

The VenaFit treatment is performed only a single time.

Most patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the Venefit™ procedure. Dr. Ruz will give you a local or regional anesthetic to numb the treatment area.

After the procedure, a small bandage will be applied on the access site. There is the necessity to apply a compression stocking all the way up to the thigh following the procedure. The patient usually is able to resume their normal activities of daily living the next day. Intense workouts are generally avoided for about 1 week.

Some minor complications may occur after this type of treatment.

  • The most common is the development of superficial thrombophlebitis on the inner part of the thigh. This occurs in about 15% of cases and can be painful. The application of a warm moist compress and anti-inflammatories might help.
  • Discoloration of the skin may occur after superficial thrombophlebitis and becomes permanent in 5% of cases.
  • Nerve trauma can occur after thermoablation of the saphenous vein since the saphenous nerve is intimately associated with it. This complication occurs in less than 3% of cases since tumescence separates the nerve from the vein.
  • Some rare cases of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism are listed in the world literature.
