Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure performed in the office with local anesthesia utilizing heat to close the greater, lesser or perforating veins. Using ultrasound, your physician will position the ClosureFast catheter into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin. The catheter powered by radiofrequency energy delivers heat to the vein wall. As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and the vein is sealed closed, blood will re-route itself to other healthy veins.
