Locating veins is critical for many medical procedures that require vein access or avoidance. These procedures include IV starts, blood draw, sclerotherapy, general and cosmetic surgery. The AccuVein AV400 is the industry leading vein illumination device that facilitates locating peripheral vasculature by displaying a map of the vasculature directly on the patient’s skin.
What are the benefits of vein illumination with regard to vascular surgery?
• Map vasculature
• Locate feeder veins
• Show foam sclerosant in real time
• Highlight veins in transdermal laser therapy
• Visually confirm efficacy of procedure
• Show veins to patients
Procedures that benefit from the use of Vein Illumination by AccuVein
Sclerotherapy – The AV400 can be used to find feeder veins, by watching the refill displayed when using the wipe technique. It can also be used to watch sclerosant as it is injected to collapse or seal the vein.
Phlebectomy – Use the AV400 to map the vasculature, making the confirmation of location while standing or laying down easy.
Vein Harvest/Graft – The AV400 can be used to map the vasculature allowing visualization to assist in the selection of the longest and straightest vein.
