ClosureRFS Stylet 'Ideal' for Treating Condition Affecting Four Million

Americans

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VNUS(R) Medical Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: VNUS), a worldwide leader in medical devices for the minimally invasive treatment of venous reflux disease, today announced the widespread success and rapid market growth of the VNUS ClosureRFS(TM) Stylet, an endovenous radiofrequency (RF) ablation catheter currently employed by more than 500 physicians to treat a specific varicose vein-related condition in the lower leg. The ClosureRFS Stylet is the only endovascular ablation device specifically cleared by the FDA for the treatment of incompetent perforating veins or IPVs, which can produce calf and ankle swelling and skin ulcerations in about four million Americans. Over 15,000 minimally invasive ClosureRFS procedures have been performed worldwide to heat and close diseased perforators.

"I have performed over 700 procedures with the ClosureRFS Stylet, and I consider it a giant step forward in our treatment of severe venous insufficiency," said Dr. Charles J. Rodman, MD., of Beaumont, Texas. "Our patients are primarily those with advanced venous disease, and they almost always present with large, incompetent perforating veins that unquestionably must be addressed in the course of treatment. The RFS Stylet is simple to use and small enough to handle with precision, and among physicians like myself treating this patient population, I believe there's uniform agreement that it's the best device available."

"ClosureRFS is absolutely the best way of closing perforators, with none of the drawbacks of other techniques we have researched," said Dr. Ma
