Medical superglue (VenaSealTM) is the newest and most innovative, minimally invasive treatment option for venous insufficiency. The glue is a medical-grade adhesive delivered by a catheter that seals the diseased veins and allows blood flow to redirect to healthy veins.
It is a short procedure requiring only a small amount of local anaesthetic. Patients require only a small bandaid over the puncture site and are able to return to normal activities immediately post-procedure.
Under ultrasound guidance, a small catheter (hollow tube) is passed up the diseased vein and introduced through a small puncture site. The VenaSeal adhesive is delivered into the vein and intermittent light pressure to the leg is applied for a few minutes. The catheter is removed and the procedure is completed.
Any remaining visible varicose veins are usually treated with ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) some 2-4 weeks later when they have decreased in size.
This consultation is the perfect way for you to learn about what we can do to help you become free of the pain and discomfort of your varicose veins. From start to finish a consultation takes about 45 minutes and the valuable information you will receive will enable you to make important healthcare decisions about your varicose veins.
