Venaseal: Minimally Invasive Closure System for Varicose Veins

Discover Venaseal, a minimally invasive closure system for Varicose Veins. Learn about its benefits, procedure, and potential side effects.

What is Venaseal?

Venaseal is a minimally invasive closure system used to treat varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). It involves the use of a medical adhesive (cyanoacrylate) to seal off the affected vein, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins. Venaseal offers a safe and effective alternative to traditional vein-stripping surgery, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

How Does Venaseal Work?

Venaseal works by sealing off the diseased vein using a specially formulated medical adhesive. The adhesive is injected directly into the vein using a small catheter, sealing the vein shut. Over time, the closed vein is absorbed by the body, and blood flow is rerouted to nearby healthy veins.

Benefits of Venaseal

Some of the key benefits of Venaseal treatment include:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • No incisions or scars
  • Quick recovery time
  • Minimal discomfort during and after treatment
  • High success rate in closing varicose veins
  • Improved cosmetic appearance of the legs
  • Long-lasting results

What to Expect During the Procedure

During a Venaseal procedure:

  1. Preparation: The affected leg is cleaned, and a local anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort.
  2. Insertion: A small catheter is inserted into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance.
  3. Injection: The Venaseal adhesive is injected through the catheter, sealing off the vein as the catheter is slowly withdrawn.
  4. Compression: Compression stockings or bandages may be applied to the treated leg to promote blood flow and reduce swelling.

The entire procedure typically takes less than an hour, and patients can usually resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

Potential Side Effects

While Venaseal is considered safe, some patients may experience mild side effects, including:

  • Temporary bruising or discomfort at the injection site
  • Itching or burning sensation
  • Rarely, allergic reactions or blood clots

Most side effects are temporary and resolve on their own within a few days to weeks after treatment.
