Venaseal Vascular Adhesive

VenaSeal™ is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins.

VenaSeal™ is a minimally invasive, endovenous procedure to treat varicose veins. Under ultrasound guidance, a small catheter is inserted into a vein in your calf or thigh and then advanced towards your groin. A medical-grade cyanoacrylate polymer (adhesive) is then injected into the affected vessel using a specialized adhesive applicator. Under ultrasound guidance, we ‘glue’ the entire length of the vein shut. Over time, the closed vein is eventually absorbed by the body.

About vein disease

Spider, reticular, and varicose veins appear when damaged valves allow blood to reverse flow (reflux) and pool in the veins below the skin – typically on the legs and ankles. Aging, pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain, and long hours spent standing can lead to the development of abnormal veins; genetics and lifestyle can also play a role in their development. These abnormal veins can result in aching, swelling, night cramps, leg fatigue, itching, and burning. In advanced disease, varicose veins can result in skin thickening and ulcerations.

Benefits of VenaSeal™

VenaSeal offers several distinct advantages over other procedures:

  • No painful tumescent anesthesia or general anesthesia
  • No wearing compression stockings following the procedure
  • No risk of heat damage to nearby nerves or skin
  • Return to normal activity within 24 hrs

Am I a candidate for venaseal vascular adhesive?

During a one-on-one consultation, our physicians will determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for vein therapy and if so, which therapy (or therapies) are most appropriate for you. Typically, good candidates are non-smokers who have:

  • Good health and a stable body weight
  • Realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Large, raised or bulging veins
  • Painful veins that throb or swell
  • The ability to walk on their own
  • No active rashes or infections
