The VenaSeal Closure System improves blood flow and relieves symptoms by sealing — or closing — the diseased vein. The system delivers a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive to the diseased vein during an outpatient procedure. The adhesive permanently seals the vein and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins.
Nearly 100,000 patients have been treated with the VenaSeal closure system around the world.
The VenaSeal closure system is a safe and effective treatment, providing significant improvements in quality of life.1
In a US study,1 the VenaSeal system and thermal radiofrequency ablation treatments had similar clinical results at 3 years; 94.4% closure for the VenaSeal system and 91.9% for thermal energy.
Side effects were minor and infrequent:
Varicose vein treatment with the VenaSeal closure system has been shown to reduce discomfort and recovery time when compared to the traditional thermal energy treatment.
