Precision VIR Announces Availability of Varithena® as a Non-Surgical Option for Patients with Symptoms Related to or Caused by Varicose Veins

The Cutting-Edge Procedure can Reduce a Variety of Symptoms and Improve Vein Appearance

Dallas, TX (April 16, 2018) – The doctors at Precision Vascular & Interventional recently announced they incorporated Varithena® (polidocanol injectable foam) into the growing list of superior vein treatment options for their patients. Varithena is a non-surgical prescription medicine many believe can be a game-changer when it comes to treating varicose veins, specifically in combating the symptoms of heaviness, achiness, swelling, throbbing and itching.

“Precision VIR is delighted to provide patients with this non-surgical option,” Dr. Danny Chan said on behalf of himself, Dr. Jaryd Stein, and their associate vein specialists. “We have been specially trained in using Varithena. Treatment is minimally-invasive—which means no incision is required.”

Dr. Chan added, “The Varithena procedure usually takes less than one hour, and patients may resume light activities as quickly as the same day of treatment.”

More About Varicose Veins and Varithena

Varicose veins are enlarged bulging veins usually found above the surface of the skin on the legs and are a telltale sign of vein disease, where vein walls and valves have become weakened and eventually interrupt normal blood flow. These veins can range from the most common spider and varicose veins to skin breakdown and venous ulcers. More than 20 million Americans suffer from vein disease or venous disorders.

Sadly, vein disease does not cure itself and can get worse if left untreated. Luckily, there are a variety of treatment options available for patients with venous conditions, including Varithena, Sclerotherapy, ClosureFast, and Microphlebectomy.

Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam) is the latest option. It is administered through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein. The foam fills the desired section of the vein, and the diseased vein collapses. Blood flow then shifts to healthier veins nearby. This procedure does not require incisions. While the doctor usually numbs the injection site, no additional anesthesia is required.

Varithena treats a wide range of varicose veins in the GSV system, including:

• Tortuous (twisted) veins

• Veins above and below the knee

• Veins with small, medium, and large diameters

• Veins previously treated with other methods

Varithena® is a registered trademark of Provensis Ltd, a BTG International group company.

PHOENIX — The latest stop in the national movement seeking higher teacher pay and better education funding is Arizona, where tens of thousands of teachers have voted to walk off the job next week.

NEW YORK — The nation's six big Wall Street banks posted record, or near record, profits in the first quarter, and they can thank one person in particular: President Donald Trump.

Combined, the six banks saved at least $3.59 billion last quarter, according to an Associated Press estimate, using the bank's tax rates going back to 2015. Big publicly traded banks —...
