What is VenaSeal?

VenaSeal is a revolutionary minimally invasive varicose vein therapy. Specially designed medical glue closes problematic veins and diverts flow to healthier arteries. VenaSeal is safer and more efficient than traditional surgery. The only vein closure procedure without heat, chemicals, or lasers is this one, making it the safest.

Utilizing a medical adhesive to promptly cease blood flow is more tolerable in comparison to other techniques that induce discomfort to the vein. Frequently, individuals who have VenaSeal therapy promptly feel relief from their varicose vein issues, making it the favored choice for treatment. VenaSeal, a kind of minimally invasive treatment, has shown effectiveness in managing restless leg syndrome (RLS) in some patients.

How does VenaSeal Function?

VenaSeal, a device intended to treat varicose veins in the legs, received FDA approval in 2015. Small incisions are made near the affected vein to insert a catheter, which is a long, thin, flexible tube. Cyanoacrylate, medical glue, is injected via the catheter and creates a seal along the inner surface of the vein wall when it comes into touch with blood. This adhesive remains in the vein after surgery to permanently block blood flow. As a result, ordinarily healthy veins in your legs will be utilized to transfer blood from your legs to your heart and lungs. Around the obstructed vein, your body will eventually create a scar tissue wall. VenaSeal adhesive’s antibacterial characteristics help in the prevention of post-operative bacterial infections. Because it is soft and malleable, you should have no problems wearing it.

A VenaSeal operation takes less than an hour and is performed in a doctor’s office. The unique VenaSeal treatment catheter is guided into the vein using ultrasound, similar to endovenous ablation. A little quantity of adhesive is injected into the vein via the catheter, and then the catheter is eliminated. Once the catheter is removed, a medical adhesive is “glued” into the vein.
