A Comparison of Venaseal Versus Radiofrequency Ablation Outcomes within a Managed Care Organization

Chronic venous insufficiency is a common medical condition that afflicts over 30 million adults in the United States. Treatment and management have changed dramatically over the past 20 years with the introduction of various endovenous therapies, including radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cyanoacrylate closure using the Venaseal system. In this study, we explore a direct comparison of outcomes between RFA and Venaseal conducted by a single surgeon within a managed care organization.

An Assessment of the Society for Vascular Surgery Appropriate Use Criteria for the Management of Intermittent Claudication: key findings and considerations for implementation

These interventions can have serious complications, including limb loss. Given that the natural history of intermittent claudication rarely includes limb loss, it is critically important that interventions to treat it have appropriate indications.
