InaVein, LLC Announces First Peer-reviewed Publication of TRIVEX® used In-Office
LEXINGTON, Mass. –October 19, 2011 -- InaVein, LLC today announced publication of a peer-reviewed paper that examines use of the TRIVEX transilluminated powered phlebectomy (TIPP) System for removal of varicose veins in a clinical office rather than a hospital setting. The paper, Transilluminated Powered Phlebectomy in an Office Setting: Procedural Considerations and Clinical Outcomes was authored by Gregory A. Spitz, M.D., FACS (AmeriVein Systems, Aurora, Illinois) and published in the October 2011 edition of the Journal of Endovascular Therapy. The TRIVEX procedure was successfully completed on all patients using only local tumescent anesthesia. There were no reports of hematomas, deep vein thrombosis, or extended parasthesia at the 3-month follow up. Patients reported a high level of satisfaction (9.6 out of 10) in this setting. A mean procedure time of 13.5 minutes (+/-3.7 min) was reported. Thirty-three of the 36 patients underwent concurrent endovenous ablation procedures. According to Dr. Spitz, “More recent cases have confirmed that when patients are prepared for an in-office procedure and treated by a physician well versed in the TIPP procedure and tumescent anesthesia, the outcomes are mutually satisfying. There should also be an economic benefit, with reduced cost to the healthcare system, as has been realized in other clinical situations.” InaVein CEO Keith Jansen said, “This clinical evidence highlights the benefits of the TRIVEX procedure in an office environment for patients who have varicose veins - - a condition that impacts 25 – 40 million Americans.”
