Vascular Solutions announces the immediate availability of its new Disposable Vein Hook. This novel device provides a safe, quick and easy way to perform a phlebectomy procedure using completely disposable components.
The Disposable Vein Hook consists of a plastic handle with a blade and safety guard on one end, and a hook on the opposite end, allowing a physician to quickly perform a phlebectomy procedure by making the incision with the blade end and then turning the device around and using the hook end to remove the varicosity.
The Disposable Vein Hook has an ergonomic tactile feel, and is intended for single patient use for the treatment of superficial varicose veins and varicosities associated with superficial reflux and incompetence of the great saphenous vein in the lower extremities. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with an endovenous laser therapy treatment or as a standalone procedure.
The sterile, single-use Disposable Vein Hook is available in the United States exclusively through Vascular Solutions’ direct sales force, and is offered along with a Disposable Hemostat Pack and Phlebectomy Procedure pack, thereby eliminating the need and expense of an autoclave system. The Disposable Vein Hook is manufactured by AM Phleb Device, a subsidiary of Vascular Device Partners.
