Venous Treatment Options
YOUR SOURCE OF VARICOSE VEIN TREATMENT OPTIONS
At the DiMarco Vein Centers, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of venous diseases. These include chronic venous hypertension and congestion, chronic venous insufficiency, pelvic-derived venous disease, pelvic hypertension, pelvic varices & venous malformations and varicose veins. Venous disorders can be very serious. They can cause swelling, pain, fatigue, discoloration, rashes, bleeding, infections and ulcers. They lead to an overall uncomfortable feeling when it comes to showing off your legs. Much more importantly, the symptoms can make the patient functionally impaired by affecting their ability to ambulate, perform activities of daily living and get through a day at work.
Fortunately, DiMarco Vein Centers provides safe and effective Varicose vein treatment options, designed to treat venous disorders when conservative measures fail, helping you achieve a pain free life. To learn more about the treatment process or to schedule your initial consultation with our vein specialist, please feel free to contact us today!

Venous occlusion/embolization is a procedure in which an abnormal venous structure or malformation is closed by injecting a material into it, usually through a catheter, while using ultrasound guidance.
Endovenous RF Ablation
VNUS Closure is a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment that treats varicose veins and their underlying cause, venous reflux, with little or no pain. It can be performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthetic. With ultrasound, the ClosureFAST catheter is positioned into the diseased vein through a tiny opening in the skin. Radiofrequency (RF) energy powers the tiny catheter to deliver controlled heat to the vein wall, making the collagen in the wall shrink and the vein close. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is rerouted to healthy veins. Patients who undergo the Closure procedure typically resume normal activities within a day or two.
Venaseal is a procedure that delivers a chemical adhesive into a diseased vein to close it also under ultrasound guidance.
Verathena is a procedure in which a foam sclerosant is injected, using ultrasound guidance, into a diseased vein to close it.
All venous closure techniques replace surgical vein stripping. Dr. Dimarco will decide which technique is the best for you
Sclerotherapy is most commonly used to treat spider veins for cosmetic purposes. This procedure involves a scarifying (or sclerosing) agent being injected directly into the spider vein, which helps gradually reduce its visibility over a few weeks. The procedure can take up to 30 minutes, depending on how many veins must be treated, and you may need several sessions for complete results. In the infrequent case where endovenous ablation cannot be performed, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy can be done, albeit with a lower success rate.
