Venefit for Treatment of Itching and Other Symptoms: Case Study

A patient visited our Leesburg, Virginia office after suffering from severe itching and a group of newly discovered varicose veins for four months. During that time period, the veins had grown more prominent, and she even noticed ankle swelling by the end of most days. (Other common symptoms of varicose veins include burning, throbbing and restless leg syndrome.)

During her free screening, we discovered that reflux (back-flow) in her saphenous vein was causing the enlarged leg veins. Fortunately, this problem is very treatable using Venefit (also known as VNUS Closure), an in-office procedure done under local anesthesia with immediate recovery.

Once the procedure was performed, she noticed a rapid reduction in size of her leg veins, and her itching subsided completely.

As we've mentioned before: while medical support hosiery and leg elevation are helpful in controlling your symptoms, the "gold standard" in vein treatments that eliminate the problem is VNUS closure, now known as Venefit, often followed by phlebectomy or sclerotherapy.

If you have questions concerning your varicose veins, see us for an evaluation at any of our Maryland, Virginia or West Virginia offices. Dr. Rosenberg or Dr. McNeill will be happy to advise you.
