Q: Can treated veins reappear after going away? I had a treated vein reappear six weeks after the VNUS closure procedure. It was not visible the night before. I admit that I have been doing a lot of exercising and flexing of my legs. Could this be the reason why the vein is present again? Is it possible for a treated vein to reappear after going away?
a: The long-term closure rate with VNUS is about 98%. You could be one of those 2% that opens up. Have your doctor perform an ultrasound to make sure it is closed.
