VenaSeal is an innovative form of vein treatment that uses cyanoacrylate to close and seal varicose veins. Cyanoacrylate is a medical glue, used to effectively shut down the main saphenous vein located in the thigh. When the vein is glued shut, a process of hardening begins. The vein is closed and becomes scar tissue inside the body, but does not disappear. The blood inside the vein is absorbed and disappears, not the vein itself.
VenaSeal Treatment involves placing a small amount of cyanoacrylate into a catheter. When the vein is closed, the blood is rerouted naturally through other healthy veins located nearby. Other treatment options may require a regional nerve block or anesthesia during the procedure. VenaSeal does not. It is not as invasive as other treatment options and doesn’t require you to have an immediate post-treatment plan that involves compression stockings or medication.
Cyanoacrylates have been used to repair skin incisions and wounds since the 1950s. It is often a go-to treatment for emergencies with lacerations, especially in children. It is a quick and easy solution that helps to avoid the need for sutures in many cases. The medical-grade glue has been used in various areas of medicine over the years, including:
