Venous Insufficiency and Varicose Veins

Venous Insufficiency is weakened valves and veins in your legs. One-way valves in your veins keep blood flowing from your legs up toward your heart. When these valves do not work as they should, blood collects in your legs, and pressure builds up. The veins become weak, large, and twisted resulting in various vascular conditions.

Merlin Med (Pty) Ltd together with Invamed offers modern technology providing an effective solution in the treatment of various vascular conditions.

VenaBLOCK© – VenaBLOCK© offers a unique treatment for Venous Insufficiency. The treatment consists of simply delivering cyanoacrylate inside of a dysfunctioning vein segment (VSM, VSP or perforator veins) continuously while applying pressure over target vein segments.

A physician only needs USG (Ultrasound Guided) guidance to perform the procedure in outpatient conditions within several minutes. VenaBLOCK© brings advantages such as eliminating tumescent anaesthesia, ease of use, shortening of the procedure time and prevention from complications such as burn marks, bruising, hematoma, numbness and pigmentation in thermal ablation methods. Closure of the target vessel can be obtained in seconds and there is no need to use a compression stocking after the procedure. Patients can return to daily routines and activities immediately.

VeinOFF© – Treatment for Varicose veins. The product VeinOFF© works by causing an inflammatory reaction over the endothelium of the target vein upon the injection of polymer and simultaneous pressure application.

VeinOFF© was developed for the treatment of varicose veins (tributary veins) by a simple ablative polymerization method. Small amounts of polymer (NBCA) delivered endovenously, together with pressure applied for 2-3 minutes for total closure. It is a simple ablative, polymerization method.

The treatment is fast, instant, effective, easy and performs in minutes. This endovenous therapy delivers clinically demonstrated results with improved patient comfort and rapid recovery.

ThermoBLOCK© – ThermoBLOCK© is an endovenous radiofrequency ablation system used in the treatment of varicose veins. It uses radiofrequency or laser energy to cauterize and close varicose veins in the legs. Endovenous ablation is safe, less invasive than conventional surgery, and leaves virtually no scars. ThermoBLOCK© is a fully disposable, single-use radiofrequency ablation system.

Unique product features of ThermoBLOCK© are:

  • Rapid and uniform closure of the vein
  • Easy set-up, battery-powered RF generator
  • Consistent and effective temperature controlled energy delivery
  • No capital equipment or additional installation required
  • Adjustable temperature and time interval selections available
  • Intravascular heat parameters are monitored in real time
  • High catheter echogenicity and better visibility under USG
  • Easy repositioning between segments
  • OTW
