VenoValve: A Device for Patients with CVI

(IRB#: IRB_00146913)

Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a severe condition that involves leg pain, leg swelling, enlarged veins, skin discoloration, and open sores on the lower legs. VenoValve® is a device that may resolve serious CVI symptoms. Scientists and doctors do not know the safety and effectiveness of this device. Research is needed to learn if it may be approved and used to improve the health of CVI patients
