BEFORE AND AFTER VENEFIT (VNUS CLOSURE PROCEDURE) FOR VARICOSE VEINS
This is a 50 year old Caucasian woman from Northridge, Los Angeles County, California, who presented with bulging varicosities and blue / spider veins from the thigh to the ankle level on the left leg. Duplex Venous Ultrasound revealed significant reflux (backflow) in the saphenous vein from the groin level and along the entire leg. She underwent the Venefit procedure to close the saphenous vein at the thigh level. Three weeks later, the after pictures show a remarkable spontaneous improvement in the bulging, blue and spider veins alike, without direct treatment. Additional direct treatments like sclerotherpy injections would give this patient a more perfect cosmetic appearance.
