Varicose Vein Treatment (VenaSeal)

Summary

Varicose Vein Treatment (VenaSeal)

VenaSeal, also called ‘superglue’ treatment, offers a new and minimally invasive alternative to more invasive methods without a hospital stay. The treatment uses only a tiny amount of VenaSeal glue to seal up the vein’s inner walls. The glue is inserted into the diseased vein via a fine catheter tube at the top of the great saphenous vein, using ultrasound to guide it. Blood flow is then naturally redirected through other healthy veins in the leg. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes, and involves just one injection of local anaesthetic. This new procedure should only be performed by health professionals who can offer a range of treatments for varicose veins, and who have had special training in the procedure.
