Fox 10 was at our office interviewing Dr. Morrison and a patient of ours about CoolTouch Laser to treat veins. Thanks to TV and social media, patients can learn about new therapies to treat their veins.
In the last 2 years, the FDA has approved a New Foam called Varisolve (Varithena) for treating venous insufficiency, in other words a way to treat or close the leaking, saphenous veins that used to be stripped out! This isn’t used for the surface, cosmetic, skin veins that we can see. This replaces therapies like laser or radio frequency ablation or MOCA, Clarivein type procedures.
The other approved last November is VenaSeal, Closure by Medtronic. (medtronicendovenous.com) This procedure is the only non-thermal, non-tumescent, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a proprietary adhesive delivered by a doctor using their kit to deliver in the saphenous vein, to close the veins with faulty valves. Patients who fear anesthetic, heat, pain etc will prefer this method and if this is the only treatment needed, the patient won’t need compression stockings that day and may return to work or play.
