Is closure the right procedure?
Closure is a medical procedure which is not suitable to all; there are risk associated with it. One should consult the physician to find out if the closure is the right procedure for you, and also to consult on any special condition or risk your individual situation may present.
The closure system is endovascular coagulation of blood vessels with a superficial venous reflux in the patients.
For patients with thrombus in the veins.
Precaution:Patients with a pacemaker, defibrillator or other active devices that are implanted, should consult the cardiologist or the provider of those implanted devices. A continuous monitoring of the patient is needed during the procedure. Make sure that all power cords, the attached sterile cable are away from the pacemaker, defibrillator or other active devices.
Cautions: Patients with aneurysm in the vein has vein wall thinner in that area. To treat patients effectively here, an additional tumescent infiltration is needed for the aneurysm segment and the treatment should include segments distal and proximal to the aneurysm segment.
Patients with peripheral arteries disease should be treated with the same care as in the case of vein ligation and stripping procedures. Potential risk and complications
The risk includes but is not just limited to the following: phlebitis, hematoma, infection, skin burns, vessel perforation, thrombosis, pulmonary embolism.
The treatments of veins which are very close to the skin often result in skin burns.
