What is Clarivein®
ClariVein®OC 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. Unlike radiofrequency ablation, the procedure uses mechanical pressure and the infused medication to treat the diseased spider or varicose vein. Since there is no heat delivery to the affected varicose veins, the procedure is virtually pain-free. No heat means no tumescence, or swelling, or need for as much local anesthetic!
Why Choose Clarivein®OC
Procedures which use ClariVein®OC are often simpler, faster and studies have shown up to 74% less pain than other minimally-invasive peripheral vascular treatments. Because no thermal energy is used, there is no need for the multiple needle-stick injections of anesthesia (pain-numbing) medication along the length of the treated area. This shortens the time the procedure takes, reduces pain and discomfort, and eliminates bruising.
During the Procedure
Once placed inside, the rotating tip of the ClariVein®OC is set in motion to treat the inside of the vessel delivering medicine specified by your doctor. The medicine is delivered through the unique rotating tip of the catheter allowing for 360-degree coverage of the vessel.
The procedure typically takes very little time and creates minimal discomfort.
