What is ClariVein?

ClariVein is one of the latest and most advanced ultrasound-guided, minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins. This procedure often works more quickly than other procedures, and it’s especially suitable for large, tortuous varicose veins. ClariVein involves using a specialized catheter with a rotating tip to damage the diseased vein’s walls while injecting sclerosant medicine, thus sealing and collapsing the unwanted varicose veins.

What Happens During ClariVein?

During the ClariVein procedure, your vein doctor will numb the skin’s surface on the inside of your legs and make a small incision. The ClariVein device will be guided into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. The specialized catheter has a rotating tip that damages the diseased vein’s walls while injecting a sclerosant medicine. As such, both mechanical damage and chemical solutions are used to close the vein and restore blood circulation to the heart. The procedure concludes within 30 minutes and involves minimal bruising, following which you can resume your daily activities and work.

The ClariVein device is a slim, hollow needle, known as a catheter, with a specialized rotating tip. This device is used for non-thermal ablation, which means it involves using mechanical energy to damage the diseased vein rather than thermal energy.

Can ClariVein treat veins on the hands and feet?

ClariVein is suitable for large, tortuous veins on the legs because it uses mechanical energy to destroy the veins’ walls. As such, this procedure can’t be used for smaller veins on the hands, feet, face, and other regions with dense arterial connections.
