A Milestone of Opportunity for VNUS Medical Technologies
Date:6/8/2009

e both for our company and for the field of minimally invasive vein treatment," said Brian E. Farley, VNUS' first employee in 1995 and President and CEO. "Although this accomplishment is notable, we expect that in the future our Closure products will ultimately help millions of patients suffering from venous reflux. We also believe that our success emanates from a strong commitment to product quality supported by clinical and comparative effectiveness trials of our products. The results of these trials have proven to the medical and payor community that the VNUS Closure catheter offers superior clinical benefits to patients compared to alternative therapies. We believe our physician customers and employees gain a deep sense of satisfaction from providing such high quality medical care and products to our most important constituents - the patients treated with VNUS Closure products."

VNUS' products have been featured in over 100 clinical publications and more than ten published book chapters. Some of the company's most significant milestones include:

  • 1995: Company founded, development of catheters using RF energy to controllably shrink veins
  • January 1998: First Closure procedure performed
  • March 1999: FDA clearance of the VNUS Closure catheter and radiofrequency generator
  • August 2003: Publication of randomized trial of the Closure catheter vs. vein stripping
  • September 2005: Publication of Closure clinical study confirming the long-term efficacy of the procedure
  • October 2005: FDA clearance of the Closure RFS device for treatment of perforator veins
  • August 2006: FDA clearance of ClosureFAST, the next-generation catheter
  • March 2007: Launch of the ClosureFAST catheter to physicians and the public
  • June
