The new VenaCure 1470nm laser from AngioDynamics offers physicians another minimally invasive choice for treating varicose veins with all the same features and reliability that made the Delta series laser such a success.
The VenaCure 1470nm laser is a water-specific laser, targeting water as the chromophore to absorb the laser energy. Since the vein structure is mostly water, it is theorized that the 1470nm laser is able to efficiently heat the vein with little chance of collateral heating, resulting in an optimal vein ablation.
The VenaCure 1470nm laser is designed to work exclusively with AngioDynamics NeverTouch fibers; maximizing these two technologies may result in even better patient outcomes. The 1470nm laser allows effective vein ablation with the targeted energy of 30-50 joules/cm at a setting of 5-7 watts.
All the Features You Expect
The VenaCure 1470 laser has all the features you have come to expect: the Fiber Recognition System (FRS), which facilitates fewer steps enabling a shorter procedure set-up; the high-performance design; and the controls and interconnects, which were kept to a minimum and carefully placed, making the interface simple and easy to use. The VenaCure 1470 laser helps physicians treat patients with ease.

AngioDynamics is one of the few vein treatment companies to manufacture the laser and fiber components. The VenaCure 1470nm laser is hand-crafted in AngioDynamics’ Queensbury, NY facility.
The NeverTouch gold-tip laser fiber is an integral part of AngioDynamics advanced varicose vein treatment. The innovation behind the NeverTouch tip is a glass weld at the distal tip of a 600 um fiber. This weld results in an effective fiber diameter of 905 um and lowers the actual power density by 56 percent from that of a standard bare-tip 600 um fiber. Bench testing† shows that the net effect is a homogeneous ablation with less focal charring of the vein wall than that which is seen with bare-tip fibers. AngioDynamics’ patent-pending technology is different from competitors with standard covered-tip fibers that have the same power density as a 600 um fiber.
