VenaSeal™ Treatment For Varicose Veins
The VenaSeal™ Sapheon Closure System is a unique, minimally invasive treatment that uses a safe-for-the-body medical glue to quickly and effectively treat varicose veins . Using ultrasound, Dr. Sanjoy Kundu will guide a tiny catheter through a small access site in the skin and into the diseased area of the vein. Next, the VenaSeal™ dispenser delivers a very small amount of medical glue to close the vein. Once the affected vein is closed, blood is immediately re-routed through other healthy veins in the leg.
VenaSeal™ does not require anaesthesia to be injected into the leg via multiple needle sticks (tumescent anesthesia) and because there are no pre-procedures drugs involved, patients can return to their normal activities right after the treatment. Unlike heat-based procedures, with VenaSeal™ there is no risk of skin burns or nerve damage. VenaSeal™ usually does not require any post-treatment pain medication or uncomfortable compression stockings.
