CLARIVEIN Procedure to Treat Varicose Veins
The newest alternative to vein stripping surgery, and endovenous ablation procedures is Clarivein. The ClariVein procedure, also known as mechanochemical ablation (MOCA) utilizes a wire and sclerosant medication to seal shut incompetent veins. It can be performed in the office in less than an hour without using a local anesthetic. A thin catheter is introduced into the vein under ultrasound guidance. A sclerosant medication, such as is used in sclerotherapy, is delivered via the catheter, to seal the veins shut. La Jolla Vein Care is one of the few southern California vein centers to offer the Clarivein, or mechanochemical ablation procedure. To read more about Clarivein, go to www.lajollaveincare.com.
