EXCERPTS (Italics added):

“Other challenges that vein specialists face are that some use only a few tools — let’s say those tools are a scalpel and a radiofrequency catheter. Those who are limiting their treatment options to just the catheter and a small incision are not necessarily meeting all of their patients’ needs. This may lead to recurrent disease because residual disease will be left behind, ultimately not allowing for comprehensive treatment.

It’s important to understand the safety of any sclerosant because many providers with a pure surgical background may fear the use of foam. Image guidance is imperative to allow adequate visualization to track where everything communicates and not only assure that the target vein has been exposed, but that normal veins have been protected. With proper care, it’s an incredibly safe tool to employ, though it does have a learning curve. ”

I would like to finish by sharing that venous reflux disease is more than a cosmetic concern. Not all legs are the same, and if you’re going to treat veins on a regular basis, you need to have more than one tool in the toolbox to do the job. That leads to where Varithena plays a role. If a provider is going to be using a foam, and they’re obligated to use an FDA-approved product, I think they’re going to be happy with this choice.”
