VenaSeal Vein Treatment
The most modern innovation in the treatment of Varicose Veins is the use of medical glue (cyanoacrylate) known as VenaSeal to physically close and seal the main damaged vein. VenaSeal is entirely different from other surgical and non-surgical varicose vein treatments for the treatment of enlarged veins.
This procedure employs safe and powerful medical adhesive to seal the affected targeted veins, forcing the blood to flow only through healthy veins. VenaSeal gives the patients unbelievable results while lessening the risk of any complications by sealing vessels without heating.
This ground-breaking technology provides the perfect minimally invasive option to many patients. It is the only vein procedure that does not need to have compression stockings worn after being performed.
Who Needs VenaSeal?
The patients, who have symptoms as pain, swelling, burning and, itchiness, or they feel heaviness in their legs with the visible Spider or Varicose Veins or have underlying vascular diseases, can qualify for VenaSeal. Such patients experience significant improvement with their treatment.
How Is It Performed?
The VenaSeal procedure involves the placement of a very small amount of cyanoacrylate adhesive for the treatment of saphenous vein insufficiency, into the vein through a small catheter.
Once the affected vein is sealed, blood is instantly re-routed through other healthy veins in the leg. Unlike other treatments, VenaSeal does not need a regional nerve block or large volumes of tumescent anesthesia.
Moreover, there are no pre-medications involved, and patients can get back to their daily activities right after the treatment. VenaSeal does not require any post-treatment pain medication or uncomfortable compression stockings.
The first step for patients who are receiving this practice is a thorough evaluation of the leg vessels. Ultrasound images give the doctor a clear view of the vein, guiding them to the optimal injection site.
Using a fine catheter, a tiny puncture is made in the skin through which the VenaSeal device is inserted. To guarantee complete closure, the carefully –controlled adhesive is delivered alongside the entire length of the targeted vein.
It closes the vein at once with a little discomfort. Pressure is then applied to ensure the medical adhesive is tightly placed; finally, the catheter is removed. The entire procedure completes within 30 minutes.
Benefits of VenaSeal
The benefits of VenaSeal are:
- It is FDA approved.
- The whole procedure needs only one needle stick.
- The procedure does not heat the vein.
- Tumescent anesthesia is not needed in this technique.
- Rates of complications in VenaSeal are much lower as there is no heating element that is involved in this procedure.
According to various clinical studies, VenaSeal is the safest and effective most advanced vascular surgery that offers venous recovery. The unique approach of VenaSeal eliminates the risk of any thermal nerve injury while performing the treatment of a saphenous vein. The results of this procedure have shown significant improvement to the patients of Varicose Veins.

How Safe Is VenaSeal?
- VenaSeal has been found to be as safe and effective as compared to ablation that uses heat and sclerosant-based sclerotherapy.
- VenaSeal also reduces the risk of nerve damage, which sometimes occurs when small saphenous veins are treated.
Is VenaSeal FDA Approved?
- The FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) has permitted the VenaSeal closure system (Covidien LLC).
- It is first device to permanently treat Varicose Veins by sealing them with an adhesive agent.
What Is VenaSeal Made Of?
- The adhesive used in VenaSeal is special type of medical super-glue referred to as a “Cyanoacrylate.”
- Cyanoacrylate is very carefully synthesized in specially designed laboratories and holds some unique properties when compared to other available medical grade glues on the market.
