About the department
The Department of Phlebology at the Vascular Surgery Clinic Düsseldorf offers innovative methods for the treatment of varicose veins, which include Venefit technology with the use of the VNUS Closure FAST system and VenaSeal (non-thermal ablation technology). These sparing therapeutic measures are performed under local anesthesia and provide excellent aesthetic results. In addition, the department specializes in conventional interventions to treat varicose veins, such as sclerotherapy, treatment of deep vein thrombosis, other vascular and venous diseases. The department is headed by Dr. med. Najib Jawadi, who perfectly masteres all the methods of varicose veins treatment and annually helps hundreds of patients with this pathology.
The department is fitted out with all necessary diagnostic equipment (systems for Doppler and duplex scanning, light reflex rheography, devices for venous occlusion plethysmography, MRI, CT, etc.).
The innovative Venefit technology with the use of VNUS Closure FAST system is one of the most effective methods for eliminating the manifestations of varicose veins. It was developed by the Swiss company COVIDIEN and was successfully tested in several clinical trials. The essence of the technique is the radiofrequency ablation of the affected veins with a specially designed catheter – VNUS Closure FAST. During the procedure, this catheter is inserted through a small incision under the knee into the affected vein and then into the vessel. Unlike laser therapy, the VNUS Closure FAST catheter does not require continuous tapping of the energy source, which allows monitoring and reproducing radiofrequency ablation in segments of the target vessel up to 7 cm in length. After the initiation of this process, blood will be naturally redistributed between the remaining healthy veins, while the treated vein will be eventually replaced by a connective tissue and destroyed by the body. The catheter has an exceptional accuracy, so it does not affect healthy tissue a few millimeters from the affected vein. The VNUS Closure FAST catheter is a disposable device selected individually for each patient. The great advantage of the procedure is that it is performed very quickly and the patient has the opportunity to immediately return to the normal lifestyle.
The department also offers VenaSeal procedure, which is an excellent option for treating varicose veins in the early stages. The specialists of the department have a rich clinical experience in this type of treatment and guarantee the optimal result. The VenaSeal technique is a minimally invasive procedure for direct intravenous treatment, in which a hypoallergenic biological glue is injected into a vein using a special gun. The manipulation is absolutely painless and is characterized by a minimal period of recovery among all varicose veins treatments. It also guarantees an instant cosmetic effect.
