As we discussed in our previous blog, varicose veins can sometimes cause you a lot of grief. If you are experiencing discomfort or pain from you varicose veins, then it is time to get them removed. Having varicose veins removed is an outpatient procedure that is minimally invasive, and can be taken care of in just a few hours time. The Cardio Metabolic Institute of New Jersey offers two different types of varicose vein removal options: Endovenous Thermal Ablation and Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy. Let’s take a deeper look at these options and what they entail.

Endovenous Thermal Ablation

This treatment is very simple. A small and thin tube is inserted into the vein using a needle. This tube is called a catheter. We slip it into the diseased vein and use thermal heat to seal of the vein at both ends, so that the body will no longer use it for the transportation of blood. The body will recognize this and use alternate vein routes to pump blood into the heart. Eventually the vein will deflate or shrink, and the body will absorb the vein making it disappear. This safe and fairly non-invasive treatment will provide you will the relief that you are looking for in a hurry.

Venefit™ Targeted Endovenous Therapy

This procedure is similar to Endovenous Thermal Ablation, as it offers the same outcome. Venefit™ previously known as VNUS Closure™ is a procedure that uses radiofrequency and heat to contract the collagen in the walls of the infected vein causing it to collapse and become sealed off. Much like the Endovenous Thermal Ablation, the blood will reroute to other veins and the body will eventually absorb the dead vein.
