Physicians Hail VNUS Device for Closing Diseased Perforating Veins
Date:11/1/2007

rk Whiteley, vascular surgeon and director of The Whiteley Clinic in Surrey, England. "The beauty of the RFS Stylet is that the ultrasound lets you know exactly where you are at all times during the procedure, so it reduces or eliminates the risk of complications, and you're certain of getting successful ablation of the vein exactly at the point you want it. Perforator incompetence has proven to be a common cause of varicose vein recurrence, even in patients whose truncal reflux disease has been successfully treated, so we know that where the condition exists, it must be treated -- and ClosureRFS is clearly the device of choice."

"In order to provide total vein care for venous insufficiency, I think it's vital to address perforating veins as well as the saphenous vein, because almost all of the leg ulcers and post-treatment recurrences we see are associated with diseased perforators," said Thomas Pester, MD., of El Paso, Texas. "The ClosureRFS Stylet is an ideal device for dealing with this issue -- it's very easy to use, the results are quite good and the patients are comfortable with it. I would recommend it to every physician treating patients with venous reflux disease."

ClosureRFS can be performed either as a primary outpatient procedure or as an adjunct to saphenous vein ablation procedures. VNUS has launched an improved version of the ClosureRFS Stylet, which now includes an integrated cable and a new streamlined hub designed for easier use and better ergonomics. For physicians seeking to treat the whole spectrum of venous pathology in managing patients with venous disease, the improved ClosureRFS Stylet is the only endovascular ablation device specifically cleared by the FDA for the treatment of incompetent perforator veins.

"The ClosureRFS Stylet has proven itself as a vital tool for physicians treating the perforator incompetence often seen in patients with advanced venous disease, and we're pleased with how quickly and enthusiastically i
