ClariVein®IC is a clinically proven, minimally invasive procedure that treats varicose veins and their underlying cause, venous reflux, with little or no pain. ClariVein® patients can walk away from the vein procedure and be back to everyday activities – either at home or at work – typically within a day.
ClariVein®IC is a specialty infusion catheter with a rotating wire tip designed for the controlled 360-degree dispersion of physician-specified agents to the targeted treatment area. The ClariVein®IC is fully disposable, minimally invasive, and can be efficiently used in an office setting.
The ClariVein®IC device is a thin catheter (tube) that your doctor temporarily inserts into the peripheral vasculature through a pin-sized entrance point. ClariVein®IC is several times smaller than other devices used in peripheral vascular treatments allowing the entrance point to be smaller.
The ClariVein is the treatment for venous reflux and varicose veins patients seek when they want a minimally invasive treatment alternative with less pain and less bruising when compared to traditional vein stripping surgery, radiofrequency and laser treatment. The ClariVein treatment is an option for patients whose saphenous veins are too close to the skin for the Venefit or Laser ablation techniques. Using the ClariVein system, physicians close the diseased veins by inserting a special catheter and closing the vein using a combination of mechanical and chemical treatment. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally reroutes to healthy veins with normal valves.
The ClariVein®IC procedure does not involve pulling the diseased vein from the thigh as with vein stripping surgery. Since no heat is used to close the vein, there is no risk of burning the skin. A recent study has demonstrated that the ClariVein®IC procedure has less post procedure discomfort than the Venefit procedure with similar quality of results.
Because treatment with ClariVein®IC is minimally invasive and is catheter-based, it results in little to no scarring.
