The VenaSeal™ Closure System

The VenaSeal ™ closure system is an innovative and highly advanced technique for the treatment of varicose veins. Non-tumescent, non-thermal, and sclerosant free, clinical studies have shown it is safe, without risk of thermal burns or nerve injury. There is no need for the patient to take any medications prior to the procedure and no need to wear compression stockings afterwards.

VenaSeal™ requires no large incisions, numbing medications, or anaesthesia, and a single treatment is often enough to eradicate varicose veins. Results begin to take effect immediately, and recovery is typically speedy and pain free. Performed on an outpatient basis, the procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes, after which the patient may return home to normal activity.

The VenaSeal™ technique makes use of a proprietary cyanoacrylate polymer or “superglue,” which effectively seals off varicose veins, allowing the body to reroute blood flow to healthy veins and to dissolve the diseased ones.

During the procedure, a catheter is inserted through the skin directly into the affected vein, where a small amount of the superglue is applied. Throughout the procedure, the position of the catheter is actively monitored by means of ultrasound. Following application of the superglue, the treated vein is compressed by ultrasonic probe to ensure a proper seal has been formed.

The VenaSeal™ procedure ends with the removal of the catheter and closure of the insertion site. The superglue hardens, leading to permanent closure of the vein and, in time, its absorption into the body.

Other Varicose Vein Treatments and Varicose Vein Removal Options

 

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a solution—usually salt based—directly into the diseased vein. This solution scars and closes the vein, causing blood to reroute through healthier veins. Sclerotherapy is a primary treatment option for thread veins and small varicose veins. Compression stockings are required following the procedure to help with healing and to decrease swelling. Possible side effects include blood clots, headaches, lower back pain, fainting, swelling, temporary eyesight issues, itching, and skin colour changes at the treatment site.

 

Laser Therapy or Laser Vein Treatment

Not to be confused with endovenous laser treatment, laser therapy is also used to treat minor varicose veins and thread veins. Here, concentrated bursts of light energy are delivered directly into the vein, causing it to shrink and gradually disappear. No incisions or needles are required. Though less invasive, laser therapy tends to be less effective than sclerotherapy. Redness, bruising, itching, swelling and permanent skin tone changes are all possible side effects.

 

Endothermal Ablation

Endothermal ablation is divided into two alternative techniques: radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser treatment.

Radiofrequency ablation involves the delivery of high-frequency radio waves to heat the interior walls of the diseased vein, leading to its collapse and absorption into the body. To accomplish this, a fine wire is passed through a catheter that has been inserted into the vein, and radiofrequency waves are then delivered via a heating element on the end of the wire. Side effects such as paraesthesia may be experienced, but are usually temporary.

Endovenous laser treatment utilises, as the name implies, a laser to heat the walls of the affected vein, again causing its collapse and absorption into the body. In this instance, a laser fibre is threaded through a tube into the vein to deliver heat where it is required. Following treatment, the patient may experience painful bruising and a feeling of tautness in the legs. Nerve injury is likewise possible but usually not permanent.

Endothermal ablation requires the numbing of skin and surrounding tissues as well as the wearing of compression stockings, following the procedure. It is the standard treatment for larger varicose veins.

 

Ambulatory Phlebectomy / Phlebitis Treatment

In ambulatory phlebectomy, the superficial varicose veins are removed directly through the skin, using a small scalpel or needle. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia, in the doctor’s office, and is usually reserved for those veins closest to the skin surface. Recovery time is relatively brief, with the patient being able to walk immediately following the procedure. Compression stockings typically must be worn for one to two weeks after the procedure. Possible side effects include temporary hyperpigmentation, bruising, superficial blood clotting, infection, and allergic reaction.

 

Traditional High Ligation and Vein Stripping

Traditional ligation and stripping entails the removal—partial or complete—of the greater saphenous vein. Generally, this is performed by making at least two incisions in the skin along the vein’s length—at the groin and somewhere farther down, often at the knee.

Through the groin incision, the greater saphenous vein is clamped, cut, and ligated. A thin plastic wire is then passed into the vein at the groin area and guided to the lower incision, where the wire is pulled out and with it the vein. By removing the deeper lying greater saphenous vein, blood supply to the superficial varicose veins is cut off and they can no longer sustain themselves.

Traditional ligation and stripping requires either general or spinal anaesthesia. Recovery time is comparatively long, taking up to four weeks, and the patient is usually not able to walk immediately following surgery. Possible side effects include nerve injury and associated numbness, deep vein thrombosis, chronic leg swelling, and incisional scarring. Compression stockings must be worn following the procedure. With the advent of other, less invasive treatment options, ligation and stripping has become less common.

 

Endoscopic Perforator Vein Surgery

In this procedure, a small video camera is passed through an incision in the skin and into the varicose vein, where a surgical tool at the tip of the camera is employed to seal off the vein. As in the case of ligation and stripping, endoscopic vein surgery is usually performed only in severe cases, such as those involving leg ulcers, and significant pain and after other techniques have failed. Recovery usually takes several weeks. Possible complications include swelling, deep vein thrombosis, and damage to nerves.

 

Conservative Measures or Varicose Veins Natural Treatment

Varicose veins can be treated, in some degree, by topical medicaments and compression therapy. A variety of varicose vein creams and spider vein creams are available, and varicose vein socks, or compression stockings, assist in reducing vein diameter and improving blood flow velocity, as well as valve function.

There are likewise a number of home or natural remedies, such as apple cider vinegar, garlic, and cayenne pepper, purported to help improve blood flow and reduce both the swelling and discomfort associated with varicose veins. Such remedies have the merit of being comparatively inexpensive, meaning one can test to see if they help at little cost.

Varicose Veins Definition

Varicose veins are superficial veins that have become bulging and twisted. They are often blue, purple, and red in colour and can cause aching pain and discomfort. Because standing and walking tend to increase the pressure in the veins of the lower body, varicose veins commonly occur in the legs and feet. Spider veins, also called thread veins, are a milder form of varicose veins and tend to be smaller.

Varicose veins result from the weakening of intravenous valves designed to stop blood running backwards, away from the heart. This valve failure allows backflow, which overstretches veins and enables blood to leak into surrounding tissues, causing swelling. When valves are not working properly, making it difficult for blood to return to the heart from the legs, it is termed venous insufficiency or chronic venous insufficiency.

A corollary condition to varicose veins is phlebitis, also known as superficial thrombophlebitis. This is the inflammation of a vein, usually in the legs, due to blood clot or damaged vein walls. It most commonly occurs in superficial veins and varicose veins are particularly susceptible. With phlebitis, there is also the risk of the blood clot travelling to deeper veins within the body, leading to deep vein thrombosis, a painful condition causing swelling and tenderness.

 

What causes varicose veins?

Some of the key causes of varicose veins include heredity, age, pregnancy, menopause, obesity, sedentariness, and sun exposure.

 

How to Prevent Varicose Veins

It is far better to prevent varicose veins than to treat them, and there are a number of ways this may be accomplished. The following recommendations are especially relevant to those who have already undergone some form of varicose veins treatment or are prone to the condition.

Exercise. Move your body. Walking, in particular, is an effective means of weight loss/maintenance and encourages blood circulation in the lower body. Consult your physician on proper intensity levels.

Keep your weight and diet in check. Losing excess fat stores helps reduce the pressure put on your veins. Be careful what and how much food you put in your mouth and adhere to a low-sodium diet to mitigate water retention and leg swelling.

Be careful what you wear. Tight shoes and constrictive garments can impede blood flow. Specifically, abstain from high heeled shoes. Opt for flats, which will work your calf muscles more and so encourage blood flow. As to clothing, avoid any garment that sits tightly around waist, legs, or groin.

Put your legs up. It may also be helpful to elevate your legs, periodically, throughout the day, so that your feet sit above heart-level, which position supports blood flow to that vital organ.

Don’t just stand there. Refrain from standing or sitting in one position for extended periods, instead altering your posture, regularly and often.

Unfold those legs. It may also be best to avoid crossing the legs, as some physicians believe this can impede healthy blood flow.

 

Potential Risks

The VenaSeal™ closure system is minimally invasive and was established as safe in a series of FDA clinical trials. Nevertheless—as with any medical procedure—there is at least some risk involved, no matter how slight.

Potential complications include allergic reaction to the VenaSeal™ superglue, bleeding from the catheter insertion site, infection, deep vein thrombosis, oedema, hematoma, hyperpigmentation, neurological deficits, urticaria, arteriovenous fistula, mild inflammation, pain, paraesthesia, phlebitis, vascular rupture, pulmonary embolism, and visible scarring.

Your surgeon will discuss these with you, in detail, before going forth with the procedure, and we are also happy to address any concerns you might have in this regard. 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 

​FREE EVALUATION OF YOUR PHOTOS

After initial contact via phone or email, we will ask you to provide us with photos of the areas which you would like to enhance, with a brief description of what your goals are for the procedure. This is only used to ensure the best evaluation for your personal needs, and all information sent to us will be held in strict confidence. Of course you are under no obligation at this stage, and the evaluation is completely free of charge. 

 

MEDICAL QUESTIONNAIRE

Next, we will ask you to fill in our medical questionnaire, as we need to be confident that there are no existing medical conditions which could affect you undergoing the procedure. Please fill in as much information as possible, and we will get back to you with an evaluation of your questionnaire by one of our doctors.

 

DEPOSIT PAYMENT

Once an agreement has been made for the proposed dates, prices, and surgeon who will perform the procedure, the next step will be to pay the deposit to the clinic account. The deposit is a 100% booking guarantee of your date. If you do not show up for the surgery without providing us with a reason, we cannot return the deposit back. Of course in the event that you are ill or if an emergency prevents you from keeping your date and you are able to notify us in a timely manner, we are able to find new dates for you and use this deposit to secure a new date.

 

The outstanding balance must be paid on the day of the surgery (we accept cash, credit cards, or a direct bank transfer into clinic account).
