Video Overview

One of the main problems of varicose veins is that the valves within the vein are not functioning. This results in venous hypertension, high pressure within the venous system. The VNUS closure technique helps treat this by closing the vein with sound wave energy thereby abolishing the high pressure within the venous system. As a result we no longer have to strip the veins as in the past, we just close it with sound wave therapy.
