Radiofrequency Therapy Systems, Vein Occlusion

Definition : Radio-frequency (RF) therapy systems designed to shrink (occlude) veins by heating the vein walls. These systems include an RF generator and a catheter with collapsible electrodes. The electrodes are expanded against the vein wall; then RF energy is applied so that the vein shortens and contracts as the catheter is moved back through the vein. Vein occlusion RF therapy systems is intended as a minimally invasive procedure to replace vein stripping in the treatment of serious lower-limb venous diseases (e.g., varicose vein).
