The VenaSeal system delivers a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive to seal — or close — the diseased vein, rerouting blood to nearby healthy veins, which provides symptom relief.
More than 100,000 patients have been treated with the VenaSeal closure system around the world.
Individual results may vary.
