What is VenaSeal treatment?
VenaSeal, also referred to as vein glue, is a safe, distinctive, and minimally intrusive medical adhesive that is used to treat varicose veins quickly and effectively. Approved by the FDA in 2015 after it has been investigated thoroughly in Europe and the United States.
With VenaSeal, there is no need for a local anesthetic injection around the vein, unlike with radiofrequency ablation or endodontic laser ablation, which both require many injections. The Gеrmаn VeClose Study showed a 98.9 реrсеnt сlоѕurе rаtе at six mоnthѕ.
How is VenaSeal Performed:
Under ultrasound guidance, doctors introduce a device into the vein. The devices releases “cyanoacrylate glue”. The glue works as an adhesive to close the unhealthy vein. It has long been used in other vascular medical procedures with a proven safety record.
VenaSeal is performed using one single injection and it doesn’t utilize thermal or laser energy, so it’s virtually painless and it avoids the risk of nerve injuries. The vein will permanently harden after a few hours and progressively be absorbed by the body as time passes.
After the damaged vein has been closed, blood will naturally begin to reroute through the healthy competent veins in the leg creating a healthy circulation. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be done in office.
What are the advantages of VenaSeal over Laser or Radiofrequency Ablation?
One advantage of VenaSeal over Radiofrequency ablation is the ability to close the vein without the use of heat delivery. As a result, using anesthetic solution is not required.
What are the pros and cons of VenaSeal?
The procedure is minimally invasive, takes only 30 minutes, doesn’t require general anesthesia, and can be done in office for most patients. No downtime and can resume daily activities immediately.
On the other hand, hypersensitivity and allergic reactions are more common with VenaSeal due to injecting the “glue”. There is also a higher rate of vein inflammation (phlebitis) following the procedure. It’s also not covered by most insurances.
