VNUS FAST Closure

by

VNUS FAST Closure is a variation of the 1st generator catheter and is used almost exclusively now in the United States. Instead of a pronged tip, it uses a 7 cm coil to deliver radiofrequency energy to a 7 cm segment of vein. The great saphenous vein can be ablated with the VNUS Closure FAST catheter to treat saphenofemoral venous reflux disease. Similarly, the lesser (or short) saphenous vein can be ablated with the VNUS Closure FAST catheter to treat sapenopopliteal venous reflux disease with good success.
