The VenaSeal™ closure system is the only non-tumescent, non-thermal, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a proprietary medical adhesive delivered endovenously to close the vein. This unique approach eliminates the risk of nerve injury when treating the small saphenous vein, which is a risk sometimes associated with certain thermal-based procedures. 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.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Before the VenaSeal™ Closure Procedure: You will have an ultrasound imaging exam of the leg that is to be treated during your new patient or re-evaluation visit. This exam is important for assessing the diseased superficial vein and planning the procedure.
During the Procedure: You may feel some minor pain or stinging with a needle stick to numb the site where the doctor will access your vein. Patients are comfortably sedated throughout the entire procedure. Once the area is numb, your doctor will insert the catheter (i.e., a small hollow tube) into your leg. You may feel some pressure from the placement of the catheter. The catheter will be placed in specific areas along the diseased vein to deliver small amounts of the medical adhesive. You may feel some mild sensation of pulling or tugging. Ultrasound will be used during the procedure to guide and position the catheter. After treatment, the catheter is removed and a bandage placed over the puncture site.
After the Procedure: You will be taken to the recovery area to rest. Post op instructions will be given to you to take home and any of your questions answered before leaving our office. Our Doctor will visit with you and discuss the procedure with you as well as answer any further questions you may have. You will then be wheeled out to your car by one of our staff members.
