Radiofrequency obliteration of the veins of the lower extremities (RFOS Closure FAST)
Radiofrequency obliteration of the veins of the lower extremities (RFOS Closure FAST)
Varicose veins are a problem for many generations. The disease is manifested not only among women, but also among men. Varicose veins are a problem of aesthetic and medical nature. Doctors have learned to fight the disease, remove the main symptoms and help patients, but not for a long period, only rarely does remission occur.
Radiofrequency obliteration or RFO Closure FAST is one of the methods of treating the disease. Below, the main exciting questions will be revealed: the essence of the methodology, what are the indications and contraindications, the main complications, the rehabilitation period and much more.
Radiofrequency obliteration, RFO, what is it?
Radiofrequency obliteration (RFO) is a non-surgical method for treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. Applied with heart pathologies, kidney disease and varicose veins. At the heart of the treatment is the use of a radio-frequency generator, which creates radio emission. Radiation from the device is transmitted through the vein through a catheter, so that the wall of the vessel first heats up, then narrows and forms a connective tissue. It is under the influence of radio emission that narrowing and full sealing of veins occurs. The procedure for radiofrequency obliteration, RFE (photos are shown on the Internet and on our website), is painless and fast. Results from the procedure are visible in a week.
Varicosity and RCH: real treatment
Varicose veins are a pathological disease in which the walls of the vessels are affected, nodules are formed and the lumen of the veins is expanding. Because of the failure of the valves, there is a violation of blood flow, there is reflux (reverse blood flow). The disease affects patients of any gender, but most often it appears in women. This is due to hormonal failures, pregnancy and other factors.
Patients with varicose veins usually complain of swelling of the legs, a feeling of heaviness in the legs, rapid fatigue, night cramps, pain, frequent bleeding (bruising), bloating, ulcers. Disease of the lower extremities mostly proceeds slowly without severe symptoms, but in case of neglect, limb amputation or death due to thrombus spreading through the bloodstream is possible.
Varicose veins are treated with many methods: surgical, medicamentous, non-surgical, but the most effective and safe is endovasal radiofrequency obliteration.
Radiofrequency obliteration (RFW) - Wikipedia claims ...
In wikipedia, RFO is found in the methods of treating varicose veins and is described as: an endovasal treatment for the major veins of the lower limbs. Treatment is aimed at eliminating reflux (reverse blood flow) in a large or small saphenous vein. The whole procedure is under the supervision of an ultrasound specialist, under local anesthesia, without additional hospitalization and incisions. This is also remarkable radiofrequency obliteration, RFE. You can find out the cost of the procedure by calling our clinic.
Principle of methodology
All endovascular methods of treatment of varicose veins are based on the elimination of pathological reflux in perforating and superficial veins, where the valves do not work. Radiofrequency obliteration (RVW) of the veins of the lower limbs is based precisely on the elimination of the reverse blood flow in large venous trunks: a large and small saphenous vein. The physical effect of radiation has a narrowing effect on venous vessels. Radio radiation heats the walls of the varicose vein, the endothelium is destroyed, there are voids, due to which the walls stick together, and the tissues in the damaged area are replaced by connective tissue fibers. That's why radio frequency obliteration of RFE is effective, and feedback about which can be seen below.
Preparing for the procedure
Before the procedure, the patient does not have to adhere to a certain routine of the day, but ultrasound scanning of the veins is necessary. Delivery of blood for viruses: AIDS, HIV, syphilis and hepatitis, as well as general screening of the body, including the delivery of a coagulogram and ECG will give a complete picture of the general condition of the body and obvious contraindications. In the evening before the procedure, you need to go to the shower, wash your feet with soap. Do not do hair removal. It is advisable to eat for 2 hours before RFE. On the procedure come in light, free, comfortable clothes.
Radiofrequency obliteration, RFO of veins passes in the 2 phase:
The phlebologist collects an anamnesis, gets acquainted with the previous variants of the treatment of the disease, the drugs taken by the patient. Appoints (according to indications) an additional examination. Based on the results of UZDV, the doctor determines the stage of the disease development. And appoints the necessary treatment.
The surgeon-phlebologist under local anesthesia inserts the needle into the vein, and along it conducts a radio-frequency catheter, focusing on the image of ultrasound. After testing, she performs tumescent anesthesia. Later the generator is switched on and the effect of thermal radio emission on the affected vein begins, with a gradual movement of the catheter through the vein. The procedure ends after the catheter is completely removed from the vein. The puncture site is treated with an antiseptic and a sterile bandage is applied.
Radiofrequency obliteration (RVW) of the veins of the lower limb is carried out without incisions, due to which the rehabilitation time is shortened, there are no scars left, and, most importantly, there is no need for hospitalization.

Indications for RFE
Radiofrequency obliteration (RVW) of the veins of the lower extremities is performed in patients not only with varicose veins. Traditional surgical intervention is usually dangerous to health, since the risk of general anesthesia and spinal anesthesia is always present. Another disadvantage of open surgery is scars and scars after surgery. A long recovery period is also not an advantage of this method of treatment. Technologies are developing, and medicine has stepped forward, so now the endovisal methods are increasingly used in the treatment.
Radiofrequency obliteration, RFE - the price is low, the result is excellent.
The advantages of the method:
- The duration of the procedure is 40 minutes.
- No scar formation.
- Minimal complications.
- Removal of the affected vein with a single puncture.
- The procedure is carried out without anesthesia.
- No hospitalization is required. After the procedure, you can go home. But there are limitations in physical activity.
- No painful sensations.
- Efficiency of the method.
- Can be combined with complex treatment of diseases.
- The entire procedure is carried out with disposable sterile instruments.
Radiofrequency obliteration (RVW) of veins - contraindications
Radiofrequency obliteration, although it is a universal tool for any patient, has its own contraindications:
- Thrombosis of veins;
- Skin diseases (furuncles, pyoderma);
- Inflammatory, infectious, viral diseases;
- Atherosclerosis of lower limb arteries;
- Lactation and pregnancy;
- Diseases in which it is not recommended to wear compression linen.
Recovery after the procedure
After the RFE it is necessary to limit physical activity, thermal influence on the skin (baths, saunas, hot baths). For 2-3 weeks, it is necessary to wear compression underwear. Positively affect the body daily walking. It is forbidden to engage in fitness, perform anaerobic exercise, do gymnastic exercises for 1-2 months.
Radiofrequency obliteration (RVW) of the veins of the lower extremities - complications
RFE is a truly effective method of treatment, compared to older lasers. While laser coagulation using a hemoglobin laser and end-of-line fibers causes painful sensations that arise during the surgeon's work, heat exposure or excessive exposure to blood vessels, which results in a perforation, RFO quickly and painlessly removes the affected areas, not heating very strongly the vein wall. After the RFO procedure, patients do not have hemorrhages, edema, or hematomas. Even in rare cases, the formation of blood clots and their spread through the veins is impossible. There may be rare complications such as:
- Arteriovenous fistula.
- Deep vein thrombosis.
- Arterial perforation.
- Stratification of the coronary artery.
- Damage to the heart valve.
- Perforation of the wall of the myocardium or coronary sinus.
- Spasm of the coronary arteries.
- Arterioventical blockade.
- Violation of cerebral circulation.
Results after the RFE
The medicine does not stand still, and it develops all the time, but even with the ideal manipulation, some undesirable consequences are possible. Even after RFO, a relapse of the disease may occur, which is associated with inguinal reflux, anatomical features of the veins. Basically, after the procedure, the patients have positive results, and they recognize that radiofrequency obliteration (RFO of the veins of the lower extremities) has helped. Photos of the results of treatment can be found on the Internet. They show how effective this method is, because the feeling of heaviness in the legs, swelling, convulsions, pain disappears, stagnation of blood is eliminated, blood flow is normalized, the probability of blood clots and trophic changes in the lower extremities is reduced. For better results, several procedures are necessary.

Patient recall: Anton, 33 year. Moscow.
He was suffering with his legs for the last 2 years. Just tried everything. There were improvements, but they did not last long. Again the feeling of heaviness, pain, cramps, pulling sensations came back. On the advice of a friend, the doctor decided to go to the clinic of innovative phlebology and conduct radiofrequency obliteration. I honestly did not think that by piercing and radiation, it is possible to achieve such results. All done quickly and painlessly. Thank the doctor who conducted the procedure, was polite and polite. After explaining everything in detail and showing what to do in the rehabilitation period. A month passed in the compression stocking. I recently took off and was amazed. The leg has changed for the better. Now you can at least play football, even for girls. Thank you. Anton, 33 year.

I read for a long time, found out and came to a consultation with the leading phlebologist of the center. Has handed over all analyzes, and treatment by a radio-frequency obliteration has been appointed. Plus the procedure, I would call it a quick one, after an hour they let me go home. During the rehabilitation, I tightened, observed all the rules, so improvements became visible almost immediately. I thank for the valuable recommendations and individual approach to my problem. Victoria, 31 year.
Patient's recall: Tatyana Ivanovna, 69 years. city of Kaluga.
Only with age began to notice changes in the legs. Has become confused by a question and has gone to our surgeon in an out-patient department (have suggested only to remove veins in a usual way in a hospital). There, sitting in line, your Moscow phlebology center recommended. I phoned the phone with the administrator. All explained and told how the treatment is. Having passed the examination in my city in a short time, I called again and I was assigned the day of the operation. So I came to Moscow in the morning, and in the afternoon I was operated on. I was surprised that there was no need for hospitalization. The treatment was quick, it did not hurt at all. The next day after dressing, she went back home. After 2 weeks after the RFE noticed an improvement. I thank the doctors of the clinic that my problem was solved in a short time, and the result is visible "it is obvious". Tatyana Ivanovna, 69 years.
