VenaSeal™ has been approved by the FDA, and it’s used to treat varicose veins. Unlike many alternative treatment options, VenaSeal™ is viewed as a permanent solution. When performed correctly, it can permanently close superficial veins. A special adhesive agent is used to seal target veins, and it has been shown to be very effective for its purpose.
If you have varicose veins, then there is a good chance that you don’t experience symptoms. However, some patients experience mild to moderate pain, blood clots and skin ulcers, which can be caused by varicose veins.
How Varicose Veins Form
Your legs have many superficial veins, and each vein has a one-way valve inside of it. When the valve becomes weak or damaged, it will allow blood to pool within the vein, which causes the vein to swell, twist or enlarge. If the veins cannot be treated with compression stockings or other conservative treatments, then medical procedures are needed to close or remove the affected veins.
How VenaSeal™ Works
The VenaSeal™ treatment uses a special closure kit, and the adhesive plays an important role in the process. During the procedure, a catheter is inserted into the target vein, and then a special liquid is inserted into the vein. Once the liquid reaches its destination, it begins to seal the vein. Ultrasound is typically used to ensure proper delivery of the liquid.
One of the major benefits of the VenaSeal™ procedure is that it doesn’t use heat. It also doesn’t require any cutting, which dramatically minimizes bruising. Unlike alternative treatment options, VenaSeal™ doesn’t pose the risk of nerve damage, and it can be very effective for treating small saphenous veins. Since many alternative treatment options use thermal energy, they’re not very safe for treating saphenous veins.
