Radiofrequency Occlusion - Closure™ Procedure

laser

The Closure™ Procedure is an outpatient (same day surgery) treatment performed in hospitals, surgical centers, and doctor’s offices. Local or regional anesthesia is typically used to numb the treatment area. The thin Closure catheter is inserted into the greater saphenous vein through a small opening. The catheter delivers Radiofrequency (RF) energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse and seal shut as the doctor slowly pulls the catheter from the vein. Like other venous procedures, the Closure procedure involves risks and potential complications. Each patient should consult their doctor to determine whether they are a candidate for this procedure, and if their condition presents any special risks. Potential complications include but are not limited to vessel perforation, thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, phlebitis, hematoma, infection, skin burns and paresthesia.

As of April 2004, more than 50,000 Closure procedures have been performed worldwide. The Closure™ procedure has over a 90% success rate after two years (1). This procedure can be performed at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Somerset Medical Center, or St. Peter's University Hospital.
