- She was having varicose veins since 16 years of age.
- Vein stripping, recurrence of varicose veins after two years.
- The patient underwent VenaSeal™ treatment followed by Varithena.
- Return to work following day after treatment.
The presence of underlying varicose veins was confirmed by assessment with the duplex scan. VenaSeal™ followed by Varithena was deemed sufficient to alleviate the patient’s symptoms. There is a 20-percent chance that an additional Varithena treatment will be necessary in the next 4-5 years.
