VenaSeal™

VenaSeal™

The VenaSeal™ closure system is the only vein procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia, in addition to being non-thermal (heat), and non-sclerosant (injectable irritant used to treat varicose veins). This procedure uses a medical adhesive that is delivered via laser, which actually closes the vein.

With thermal-based procedures there is a risk of nerve injury; with VenaSeal™, the risk is eliminated.* This procedure is safe and effective and does not require tumescent anesthesia, so you won’t have to worry about the unpleasantness of multiple needle sticks.*

What to Expect from VenaSeal™

Pre-Procedure:

The leg that needs treatment will need an ultrasound imaging exam so that the diseased superficial vein can be assessed and the procedure can be properly planned.

During the Procedure:

Your doctor will cover your specific procedure more in-depth, generally you can expect:

  • The use of a catheter, once the area is numb. The placing of the catheter can cause a feeling of pressure in the leg.*
  • This catheter will be the areas along the diseased vein in order to deliver small amounts of the medical adhesive. This may cause a mild sensation of a tugging feel. In order to guide and position the catheter an Ultrasound will be utilized.*
  • Once the treatment is done, the catheter is removed and the puncture site is bandaged.

Post-Procedure:

One the procedure is complete your doctor will then discuss the next steps with you, but most patients return to normal activity almost immediately.
