VenaSeal FlipChart-10

The VenaSeal™ Closure System is the only non-tumescent, non-thermal, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a innovative medical adhesive delivered endovenously to close the vein. Clinical studies have shown great results and proved to be safe and effective. The procedure is administered without the use of tumescent anesthesia, allowing the patient to avoid pain and discomfort associated with multiple needle sticks.

Here’s how the procedure is done:

As with any procedure done at VeinInnovations, you will have an ultrasound imaging exam of the leg that is to be treated. This exam is important for assessing the diseased superficial vein and planning the procedure.  During the procedure, you may feel some minor pain or stinging with the initial needle stick to numb the site where the doctor will access your vein. Once the entrance site is numb, your doctor will insert the catheter (a small hollow tube) into the leg that needs to be treated, during which you may feel some pressure from the placement of the catheter. The catheter will move along specific areas along the diseased vein to deliver small amounts of the medical adhesive. You may feel some mild sensation of pulling or tugging. Ultrasound will be used during the procedure to guide and position the catheter. After treatment, the catheter is removed and a bandage placed over the puncture site, but compression stockings are not necessary.

What results can be expected?

The VenaSeal™ closure system is designed to reduce recovery time. which has proved to improve symptoms as soon as the diseased vein is closed.  Many patients can return to normal activity immediately after the procedure.  As with all procedures, it is your doctor’s discretion to determine when you can return to normal activity.
