VenaSeal, also known as non-thermal ablation, the VenaSeal Closure System or VenaSeal Sapheon Closure System, is a medical procedure used to treat venous reflux disease, also known as chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).
Venous reflux disease occurs when the valves in the veins of your legs become weak or damaged, leading to improper blood flow and causing blood to pool in the legs.
The VenaSeal procedure is designed to address this condition by sealing the affected veins, diverting blood flow to healthier veins, and alleviating symptoms like pain, swelling and skin discoloration.
How does VenaSeal work?
VenaSeal is a closure system that uses a specially formulated medical adhesive delivered by a catheter to close and seal the diseased vein. The procedure is typically performed in an outpatient setting and does not require the use of heat or thermal energy, unlike some other vein closure techniques.
There is minimal downtime after the VenaSeal procedure, and people can typically resume normal activities soon after the treatment.
Advantages of VenaSeal
VenaSeal offers several advantages over other traditional treatments for venous reflux disease. It is less invasive, uses no heat or thermal energy, provides rapid relief, minimizes the risk of nerve injury and leaves minimal to no scarring.
Is VenaSeal right for you?
It's essential to consult your vascular specialist to determine if VenaSeal is the appropriate treatment for your condition. Not everyone may be suitable candidates for this procedure, so a thorough evaluation will assess your vascular health and determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
Risks and complications
While VenaSeal is generally considered safe and effective, it carries some risks — including allergic reactions, bruising or hematoma at the injection site, inflammation and infection.
As with any medical procedure, it is essential to consult with a vascular specialist to determine if VenaSeal is suitable for your specific condition.
