A PATIENT’S STORY THE JOURNEY TO TREATMENT AND THE OUTCOME

Heather is in her forties and has two grown-up children. She works as an admin assistant in an office. In her free time she loves exercising, attending boot camps and spinning classes whenever she can. She also goes out running with her friends regularly. Despite being very fit, Heather had been experiencing aching, restless legs at night, and had noticed unsightly bulges in her legs.

After speaking with her doctor, who diagnosed varicose veins, Heather thoroughly researched the treatment options available to her. She decided to opt for the VenaSeal™ procedure because it could be done quickly in an outpatient department and, unlike other treatments, didn’t require a long recover period or for Heather to wear compression stockings. This suited Heather as she wanted to be able to get straight back to work and to continue with her normal exercise routine.

Describing the treatment experience, Heather said, “During the VenaSeal™ procedure, I felt no pain. I did not need a general anaesthetic, so I was awake the whole time and the treatment team talked me through the entire procedure. I was able to get up and walk out straight afterwards. I would recommend VenaSeal™ to anyone.”

EARLIER TREATMENT LEADS TO BETTER OUTCOMES

A recent study showed that patients who received early vein closure treatment along with compression stocking therapy for venous leg ulcers experienced:
 
  • Significantly shorter time to healing;
  • Extended time free from ulcers.
