Vascular Solutions has received US FDA 510(k) marketing clearance for its Vari-Lase endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins. Endovenous laser therapy has only recently begun to gain widespread use as a treatment for the condition, which was traditionally treated by surgery, according to the Minneapolis, Minnesota firm. Over one million people in the US alone seek treatment each year for varicose veins, the company adds. Vascular Solutions plans a limited capacity US launch of its product in the second quarter of this year, followed by a full launch early in the third quarter.
