Endovenous Laser Therapy
On the day of your procedure, please arrive approximately 20 minutes prior to your procedure time. A friend or family member will need to drive you home following the procedure. Wear loose fitting pants so that they can be pulled easily over the bandaged leg. You should take a shower the morning of the procedure and scrub your leg with an antibacterial soap. Do not apply any lotions to your leg before the procedure.
The doctor and his skilled staff will once again map the veins in your leg by ultrasound. Your leg will then be prepped and draped. A local anesthetic will be applied at the point of entry. Once access to the vein has been made, a thin laser fiber will be inserted into the vessel. Laser energy will then be delivered to permanently seal the faulty vein. Your leg will then be wrapped and a compression stocking will be applied. Walking is advised following the procedure, and normal daily activity may be resumed avoiding any rigorous activities or swimming. There may be minor soreness or bruising for several days that can be treated with over-the-counter, non-aspirin pain relievers.

What is ClariVein®IC?
ClariVein®IC is a specialty infusion catheter with a rotating wire tip designed for the controlled 360-degree dispersion of physician-specified agents to the targeted treatment area. The ClariVein®IC is fully disposable, minimally invasive, and can be efficiently used in an office setting.
The ClariVein®IC device is a thin catheter (tube) that your doctor temporarily inserts into the peripheral vasculature through a pin-sized entrance point. ClariVein®IC is several times smaller than other devices used in peripheral vascular treatments allowing the entrance point to be smaller.
Why Choose ClariVein®IC?
ClariVein®IC is designed with a low profile for ease of entry and patient comfort to facilitate fast return to work and normal activities. The ClariVein®IC is designed to only require local anesthetic at the access site based on patient need and physician preference.
Ask Your Doctor if ClariVein®IC is right for you
Ask your doctor about the difference the ClariVein®IC can offer when compared to other available treatments.
What Happens During the Procedure?
Once positioned inside the peripheral vasculature via a pin-sized entry through the skin, the rotating wire of the ClariVein®IC is activated to deliver medicine specified by your physician. The medicine is delivered via the unique rotating dispersion wire tip of the catheter facilitating 360-degree coverage of the vessel and the vessel wall.
What Happens After the Procedure?
Follow your Doctor’s instructions for care after your procedure. In some cases rapid return to normal activities can be expected.
