A NICE guideline describes recommendations for the diagnosis and management of varicose veins. Many people have varicose veins that do not cause any symptoms or need treatment on medical grounds. However, some people will need treatment for the relief of symptoms or if there is evidence of skin discoloration, inflammation or ulceration. Treatment options include endothermal ablation, ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy and surgery (usually stripping and ligation of the great and small saphenous veins, and phlebectomies.)
"The recently published guidelines will allow greater treatment options for those suffering from venous insufficiency," commented Vascular Surgeon, Peter Holt, PhD, FRCS of St. George's Vascular Institute, London, England. "The ClariVein® OC catheter is a unique technology that has been widely used in European markets since 2010, in mechanochemical procedures with excellent results."
The ClariVein® OC is a specialty infusion catheter for the infusion of physician-specified agents in the peripheral vasculature including for endovascular occlusion of incompetent veins in patients with superficial venous reflux. The ClariVein® OC is commonly used with endovenous mechanochemical procedures. The ClariVein® OC is not available in the United States.
