AngioDynamics has expanded its VenaCure EVLT product line for treatment of varicose veins with a new 1470nm laser. This is the first 1470nm wavelength laser of its kinds to feature a gold tip jacket.
The innovation behind the NeverTouch tip is a glass weld at the distal tip of a 600 um fiber. This weld results in an effective fiber diameter of 905 ums and lowers the actual power density by 56 percent from that of a standard bare-tip 600 um fiber. The net effect is a homogeneous ablation with less focal charring of the vein wall than that which is seen with bare-tip fibers.
AngioDynamics’ patent- pending technology is different from competitors with standard covered-tip fibers that have the same power density as a 600 um fiber.
The proprietary technology maximizes tip visibility under ultrasound and eliminates chances of inadvertent fiber tip contact with the vein wall, further improving safety and patient comfort.
