AngioDynamics of Latham, NY has announced a new access kit for its VenaCure EVLT system, which provides a minimally invasive method for treating varicose veins using laser ablation via fiber. The company states that the new .018″ access kit reduces the number of parts in the system, speeds up treatment times, and will result in greater patient comfort.
From AngioDynamics’ press release:
The new .018-inch system for the VenaCure EVLT access kit reduces the number of components involved in gaining access for the procedure. The new kit provides a longer .018 inch nitinol long-access wire. The distal tip on the Trè-Sheath™ dilator is resized to accept a .018 inch nitinol access wire, eliminating the need for a micro-access sheath, as well as the need to exchange wires during the procedure. This ultimately reduces an eight-step process to four.
