What is VenaSeal™?
The VenaSeal™ closure system is a recent development that uses a proprietary medical adhesive (“glue”) delivered into the vein to close it. It uses neither heat nor sclerosing chemicals. The VenaSeal™ procedure also eliminates the risk of nerve or other heat-related injury and may reduce the need for compression stockings post-procedure.
Is VenaSeal™ Safe?
Clinical studies have demonstrated that the procedure is safe and effective. The procedure is administered without the use of tumescent anesthesia, avoiding patient discomfort associated with multiple needle sticks. Having only recently received FDA approval, insurance will cover the procedure as of 2018.
