For many of the 25 million people suffering from symptoms associated with superficial venous insufficiency and varicose veins, the Closure procedure offers a novel, minimally invasive alternative to vein stripping.


The Closure procedure is an outpatient (day surgery) treatment, which can be performed under local anesthesia in a variety of clinical settings including physician offices, ambulatory surgery centers, and hospitals. Using a percutaneous endovascular approach and VNUS' patented advanced radiofrequency technology, the Closure system occludes veins thereby eliminating reflux.
