Dr. Lowell S. Kabnick First to Use New VenaCure® 1470nm Laser
Date:6/9/2011

MORRISTOWN, N.J., June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Lowell S. Kabnick, MD, RPhS, FACS, FACPh, Director of NYU Vein Center and internationally recognized authority and pioneer in the field of vascular surgery, is once again leading the way with breakthrough techniques, being the first in the country to use the new VenaCure® 1470nm laser to treat varicose veins. The new laser uses a lower power output compared with other lasers resulting in effective vein closure.

The VenaCure 1470nm laser's light energy is accurately delivered through the NeverTouch® gold-tip fiber, and is more readily absorbed by the water in the blood and endothelial lining than with other wavelengths. The specially engineered fiber tip has a low power density that maximizes effectiveness and minimizes postoperative pain and bruising. The VenaCure 1470nm lasers are manufactured in AngioDynamics' Cambridge, U.K., facility, and have received the CE mark and 510k clearance.

Ongoing research studies have found excellent vein closure rates, minimal postoperative discomfort and bruising, and a clear reduction in symptom severity over the follow-up period.

"The 1470nm laser enables us to be more efficient during a procedure, we are able to treat veins much more efficiently, which ultimately improves the patients procedure experience," stated Dr. Kabnick. "That translates into quicker recovery for patients."
