Published Study Shows VNUS ClosureFAST™ System Significantly Superior to Laser for Varicose Vein Treatment
Date:6/10/2009

Farley, President and CEO of VNUS. "The trial data also explains the enthusiastic adoption of our technology by the physician community. The publication of the RECOVERY Trial results complements other medical journal publications showing over 97% efficacy from the ClosureFAST catheter. Together with the positive endorsement from European national health authorities, we believe this therapy can be regarded as the premier technolo
