VNUS Closurefast-Latest Endovenous Treatment using Radiofrequency-eliminate Varicose veins without surgery, anesthesia or hospitalisation.

The VNUS Closure procedure is a minimally invasive treatment alternative with less pain and less bruising when compared to traditional vein stripping surgery and laser treatment. Using the Closure system, surgeon close the diseased veins by inserting the Closure catheter into a vein and heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled RF energy. Heating the vein wall causes collagen in the wall to shrink and the vein to close. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally reroutes to healthy veins.

The Vein Clinic uses both EVLT and VNUS Closurefast for treatment of varicose veins. Dr. Tan will discuss both option with you during consultation.

Advantages of VNUS closurefast


  • Outpatient Treatment. Closure procedure are done using needle punctures, there is no need for groin surgery or general anesthesia. The Closure procedure can be performed using local anesthesia in a doctor's office, as well as in an outpatient hospital setting.

  • Less Pain. The Closure procedure does not involve pulling the diseased vein from the thigh as with vein stripping surgery. Studies have shown that patient experience less post-operative pain compared to stripping surgery or laser treatment. Patients receiving the Closure procedure return to normal activity and work significantly faster than those receiving vein stripping.

  • Excellent Clinical Outcomes. The ClosureFAST catheter, has been shown in a multi-center study to have a 97.4 efficacy rate at one-year.

  • No Scar Because needle puncture instead of surgical incision are used, they results in little to no scarring.
