- Adjustable active tips (0–3 cm and 3–7 cm)
- LED guide light for visibility
- Spiral active tip provides flexibility
- Internal cooling system helps prevent thermal damage
- Small 7-F profile
VeniStar is a radiofrequency electrode for treating patients with damaged veins. The length of the active tip comes in two sizes and can be adjusted from 0 to 7 cm for various ablation lengths, allowing physicians to treat a range of vessel sizes with only one device. VeniStar features an LED guide light for visibility when positioning the electrode at the treatment location. It also includes a spiral active tip, which provides flexibility for smooth navigation and the right amount of firmness for overcoming the challenge of tortuous veins.
VeniStar works in conjunction with the Varicose Vein Radiofrequency (VVR) System, which includes the VVR generator and cooling pump. The cooling pump circulates coolant throughout the electrode to help prevent thermal damage to normal surrounding tissue.
StarMed Co., Ltd., a global leader in thyroid radiofrequency ablation, started their first postmarket study with VeniStar in South Korea for their initial clinical experience. The first round of the clinical study is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. VeniStar and the VVR System are now available in Europe and South Korea.
