ClariVein(TM) Catheter for Varicose Veins: Clinical Trial Results to be Presented
Date:8/31/2009

MADISON, Conn., Aug 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The results of the initial clinical trial of the ClariVein(TM) catheter, used in a new minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins, will be delivered on Wednesday, September 2, at the XVIth World Meeting of the Union Internationale de Phlebologie in Monaco. The device combines mechanical and chemical modalities to accomplish vein treatment in an in-office setting.

Speaking is Steve Elias MD FACS FACPh, Associate Professor of Surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital, NY and the Director of The Centers for Vein Disease at Mount Sinai and Englewood Hospitals. Dr. Elias is the principle investigator of the trial, which was conducted at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, NJ. Thirty patients were studied in this IRB-regulated trial.

"Initial results are very encouraging," Dr. Elias states. "The success rates are equal to the early results of radiofrequency or laser treatment of great saphenous vein disease. The main advantage is that the technique does not require tumescence anesthesia infusion, thus saving significant time and decreasing patient discomfort. In addition, no generator is required and capital and maintenance cost is reduced. This in-office procedure takes about 15 minutes to perform and patients resume normal activity that day."

The ClariVein(TM) catheter is a product of Vascular Insights LLC (http://vascularinsights.com) of Madison, CT. The company engages in the design, development, manufacture, and marketing of medical devices for the minimally invasive treatment of peripheral vascular disease. The company has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market ClariVein(TM) for infusion of physician-specified agents in the peripheral vasculature.

Dr. Elias is scheduled to speak at the 9:00 am session in the Prince Pierre room of the Grimaldi Forum.
