VenaSeal Closure System Our Treatments

Find relief from vein disease with the VenaSeal™ closure system.

Nonthermal Vein Closure

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.

A More Comfortable Experience

  • Simple outpatient procedure
  • No tumescent anesthesia
  • Less pain and bruising than thermal ablation1,2
  • Faster recovery time than thermal ablation1,2
  • Compression stockings not needed after the procedure*2,3

More than 100,000 patients have been treated with the VenaSeal closure system around the world.
