Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (EVRFA)
The Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (EVRFA) or Venefit™ procedure is minimally invasive and uses radiofrequency energy to effectively treat patients suffering from varicose veins. The vein specialist inserts a micro-catheter through a tiny incision into the diseased vein to provide uniform and consistent heat to contract the vein walls. This causes the vein to collapse and close. After the vein is sealed shut, blood is then naturally redirected to the healthy veins. The sealed vein simply becomes fibrous tissue after treatment and is absorbed into the body.
