What is the Venefit Procedure and how is it different from EVLT ?
Sunday, December 9, 2012

 

The Venefit Procedure (previously called VNUS Closure)

 

This is another procedure that renders the veins incapable of carrying blood at all. A catheter with electrodes on the tip is inserted into the vein. The current from the electrodes burns the interior of the vein and destroys the tissue. This procedure is called VNUS Closure® when radiofrequency energy is used.

 

The EVLT Never Touch procedure utilizes 810 nm laser to obliterate the vein using two small needle sticks to provide local anesthesia. The outcomes are excellent for treating venous insufficiency of the great saphenous and short saphenous veins. In essence, both procedures (EVLT AND Venefit Procedure) obliterate the vein using laser energy (EVLT) or radiofrequency energy (Venefit procedure).
