VENASEAL CLOSURE SYSTEM OUR TREATMENTS

Find relief from venous reflux disease with the VenaSeal™ closure system.

VENASEAL CLOSURE SYSTEM

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.


HOW IT WORKS

Venaseal Procedure Step 1

Step 1: Adhesive Placed

VenaSeal adhesive is placed in the vein via small catheter.

Venaseal Procedure Step 2

Step 2: Pressure Applied

Pressure is applied to the leg to help seal the vein.

Venaseal Procedure Step 3

Step 3: Catheter Removed

The small catheter is removed from the vein.

Venaseal Procedure Step 4

Step 4: Bandage Applied

A bandage is applied to cover the wound.

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

Studies have shown:

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:

  • The most common side effect was phlebitis (i.e., inflammation of a vein), and it typically occurred within the first 30 days after the procedure. Phlebitis is a commonly reported side effect in all vein treatments. Phlebitis occurred more frequently in VenaSeal system treated subjects than in RFA-treated subjects, though the difference was not statistically significant.
  • Please see the Important Safety Information section for more information.

REDUCES DISCOMFORT AND RECOVERY TIME

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.

THERMAL ENERGY
The traditional treatment option
VENASEAL CLOSURE SYSTEM
An innovative treatment option

Heat closes the vein

Adhesive seals the vein

Multiple needle sticks of numbing medication

Only one needle stick of numbing medication

Compression stockings required after the procedure

No compression stockings needed after the procedure*

In comparison, patients treated with the VenaSeal system experience less pain and bruising.1

Some patients may benefit from the use of compression stockings post-procedure.
