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™
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.
One the procedure is complete your doctor will then discuss the next steps with you, but most patients return to normal activity almost immediately.
* Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.
