“I had all the signs and symptoms — tired legs, restless leg syndrome, achiness, the unsightly bulges. The treatment went very, very smoothly and comfortably. I would suggest it to anybody.”– Heather A., VenaSeal patient
How is VenaSeal™ Performed?
After an ultrasound identifies which veins require treatment, one of our board certified vascular surgeons will determine whether you are a candidate for VenaSeal™. They will answer all questions and the consultation is complimentary.
During the procedure, the physician will thread a small catheter (flexible tube) into the vein to be treated. Then the VenaSeal™ adhesive is delivered into the vein and light pressure to the leg is applied for a few minutes. The catheter is removed and the procedure is completed. Patients require only a Band-aid over the puncture site and can immediately return to all activities.
Step 1: Catheter is placed in vein
Using an ultrasound, your doctor will position a catheter into the diseased vein through a small access site.
Step 2: Specialized adhesive is placed
A specially formulated medical adhesive is placed in the diseased vein via a small catheter.
Step 3: Light external pressure is applied
Light external pressure is applied to adhere the vein walls together. This step is repeated for the length of the vein.
Step 4: Catheter is removed
The catheter is removed and a single adhesive bandage is applied to the vein access site.
