I-VASC and Velex

  • 18

    I-VASC is doing clinical trials with novel technology that uses a balloon catheter system to drain segment of a saphenous vein or a varicose vein following which sclerosant solution is delivered to that isolated segment.  The technology falls in the class of non thermal techniques that ablate veins.  An example of a non thermal technique that it may compete with is VenaSeal.  Anotgher would be the ClariVein System. 

    The caltheter that I-VASC is using in the trials is called Velex. 

    Stay tuned.  This technology may be a game changer for the treatment of venous insufficiency.
