The VENCLOSE system’s enhanced features are based upon the well-documented history radio frequency (RF) ablation for the treatment of venous health issues, with the intention to streamline clinical performance and improve patient outcomes.
1. The VENCLOSE catheter design is capable of treating multiple veins and vein sections within one treatment session
The VENCLOSE catheter has two heating lengths which allow for the ablation of multiple veins within one treatment session. While the 10cm heating coil allows for the timely and precise ablation of the great saphenous vein (GSV), the 2.5cm heating coil optimises more precise ablation of the last short section of the GSV near the sheath. Additionally, the 2.5cm heating coil delivers the enhanced versatility to treat multiple veins and veins types with the same catheter.
2. The VENCLOSE design delivers improved navigational ability and versatility for better operational performance
The VENCLOSE catheter features clearly indexed shaft marking for optimal positioning of the catheter heating coil for both long and short vein segments. The catheter’s small 6 French profile, mild curvature and curved end tip enhance in-vein navigation through both large and small vessels. The smaller profile also creates a smaller catheter entry site for improved patient recovery outcomes.
3. The VENCLOSE system is designed to improve efficiency and reduce procedural time and costs
When treating a 40cm GSV, the VENCLOSE 10cm heating coil is more than 30 per cent faster when compared with competitor RF catheters. Meanwhile, the 2.5cm heating coil, while optimising more precise ablation of short vein sections, also offers the versatility to treat branch veins (such as the anterior accessory saphenous vein) and refluxing tributary veins during the same treatment session, eliminating the need to open a second catheter.
