Advances are taking place rapidly in the field of vein disease. Dr. Fastabend follows and studies these new developments in order to bring the latest innovations to patients in Southwest Louisiana.
Some of the more recently approved treatment technology available at the Vein Center of Southwest Louisiana includes:
- ClariVein: A specialty infusion catheter with a rotating wire tip designed for the controlled 360-degree dispersion of physician-specified sclerosing agents to the targeted treatment area.
- VenaSeal: An injectable adhesive which treats the underlying source of varicose veins, reversal of venous blood flow or reflux in the great and small saphenous vein. The unique features of Venaseal include no requirement for compression hose after treatment, no tumescent local anesthesia and immediate return to normal activities.
- Varathena: The first FDA-approved injectable foam treatment that corrects reflux in the saphenous veins, reduces the appearance of bulging veins and relieves discomfort.
