The ClosureFast procedure uses RFA energy to close diseased veins in the legs. During RFA, a small catheter is inserted into the affected vein under local anesthesia. The catheter delivers radiofrequency energy, which heats and seals the vein shut, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins. This procedure offers patients a safe and effective alternative to traditional vein treatments, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Procedure Day Preparation:

• Wear comfortable clothing for the procedure.
• Follow any specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding diet and medication.
• Be prepared for a relatively short outpatient procedure.

Post-Procedure Care:

First 48 Hours:

• Keep your bandages dry and remove them after 48 hours.
• Encourage circulation by walking for 10 minutes every hour while awake during the initial 48 hours.
• Elevate your legs at least three times per day for 5-10 minutes during the first week post-procedure.

Two Weeks After Procedure:

• While most individuals resume normal activities after a few days, avoid strenuous activities such as aerobics, weight training, bicycling, or running for two weeks.
• Follow any additional post-procedure instructions provided by your healthcare provider.

By adhering to these guidelines and maintaining regular communication with your healthcare provider, you can ensure a smooth and successful vein treatment journey.
