FAQs about varicose veins and VNUS ClosureQ: Is the Closure procedure painful?

Q: How soon will my symptoms improve?
A: Many patients notice an immediate relief of symptoms such as pain, leg heaviness and fatigue. The full benefits of the procedure may take 1-2 weeks or longer.
Q: Is there any scarring, bruising, or swelling after the procedure.
A: Patients report minimal to no scarring, brjuising, or swelling following the Closure procedure
Q: How is the Closure procedure different from vein stripping?
A: During vein stripping, incisions are made in the groin and calf, and a stripper tool is threaded through the diseased vein, to pull the vein out of the leg. With the Closure procedure, only one small incision is made at the insertion site and the vein is then closed and left in place. This minimally invasive approach eliminates pain and bruising associated with vein stripping surgery.
Q: What if I need the vein for bypass surgery in the future?
A: The Closure procedure treats diseased veins only, which are not appropriate for bypass surgery. Physicians can use other healthy vessels should bypass surgery be necessary.
Q: Is the Closure procedure covered by insurance?
A: Most major health insurers cover the Closure procedure. Your physician can discuss your coverage further at the time of the consultation.
