What is the Venaseal™ closure system?
Venaseal™ treats venous reflux disease, or when blood collects in the leg veins instead of being sent back toward the heart. This can also cause varicose veins and pain. Since ineffective veins cannot be repaired, the procedure uses a medical adhesive to close off the vein, redirecting blood flow to healthy veins.
How does Venaseal™ treatment work?
The procedure uses a tiny incision and ultrasound to guide a catheter into the vein. The vein is then sealed up with medical adhesive, cutting off the route for the excess pooled blood causing the varicose vein. No compression stockings are required after the procedure to resume normal activity.
