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.

Oct 22, 2018

HURON, Calif. — A rooster signals the start of the day as workers wearing sombreros emerge from the shadows and shuffle past boarded-up businesses in this tiny farm town. They converge on a dimly lit dirt lot outside Panaderia de Dios, a bakery sweetening the air with the aroma of Mexican cookies and bread as workers catch rides to the fields. Little else is sweet in Huron, where jobs not displaced by automation in farming are mostly done by hand, and residents struggle to scrape by.

US stocks wobble at the end of another shaky week of trading

Oct 22, 2018

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks gave up an early rally Friday and struggled to another mixed finish as investors continued to sell former favorites like retailers. Household goods makers rose again as a week of choppy trading concluded. Stocks surged in early trading after better-than-expected reports from companies including Procter & Gamble, American Express and PayPal. Procter & Gamble, the world's largest consumer products maker, had its biggest rally in 10 years. But the gains for indexes faded after a report showed U.S. home sales fell for the sixth month in a row. That hurt smaller and more U.S.-focused companies....

FRANKFURT, Germany — The disappearance of a Saudi journalist last seen entering the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul has shaken confidence in the country as a place to do business, with potential consequences for billions of dollars in investments going into and out of the country. It's a blow, analysts say, to efforts by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to convince the world that the country is a reputable place to strike the deals needed to power a wide-ranging transformation of the economy.
