VenaSeal

VenSeal is one of the most advanced minimally invasive treatments for chronic venous insufficiency, the medical condition responsible for spider veins, varicose veins, leg heaviness, and most other vein problems. Most people only detect chronic venous insufficiency when they identify spider veins and varicose veins, but some of the earliest signs of vein disease are leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, leg swelling, and restless leg syndrome.

How Does VenaSeal Work?

The VenaSeal Closure System is a unique, FDA-approved treatment for venous reflux, the condition that eventually leads to chronic venous insufficiency. This procedure involves using a medical-grade adhesive to seal the diseased vein responsible for your vein problems, restoring optimal blood circulation to the heart. The procedure concludes within 30 minutes and involves no downtime.

During the VenaSeal procedure, the vein doctor inserts a catheter into the diseased vein via a small incision on the skin’s surface. The catheter is inserted under ultrasound guidance to ensure optimal precision. Once the catheter is firmly lodged in place, the vein physician delivers a vein glue that facilitates fibrotic growth and seals the vein’s walls shut. The accumulated blood reroutes into healthier leg veins, restoring optimal blood circulation to the heart. Meanwhile, the diseased vein hardens into scar tissues that get absorbed by the body over time.

The VenaSeal procedure is so effective that you don’t even have to wear compression stockings or ACE bandages after the treatment, which you must do after all other vein treatments. Furthermore, since this procedure doesn’t ablate the diseased vein using thermal energy, the risk of nerve injuries is non-existent.

Am I a Candidate for VenaSeal?

VenaSeal is generally meant for patients with underlying chronic venous insufficiency, and most patients diagnosed with vein disease qualify for this treatment. However, only a reliable vein doctor at a vein clinic in Maryland can truly determine if you’re a candidate for VenaSeal.

If you have the signs and symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency, please schedule an appointment at your nearest vein clinic in Maryland. The vein doctor will administer an ultrasound diagnostic scan, known as duplex ultrasound, to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins and determine if you need VenaSeal treatment.

What are the advantages & disadvantages of VenaSeal?

What to Expect from VenaSeal?

The VenaSeal procedure doesn’t involve significant side effects or downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately after the VenaSeal treatment, and most patients seek this treatment during their lunch break from work. This is one of the only minimally invasive treatments that doesn’t necessitate wearing compression stockings or ACE bandages after the treatment.

Furthermore, VenaSeal treatment allows you to swim and engage in other regular activities and exercises after the procedure. Most other vein treatments require you to avoid strenuous workouts for a few days. You may notice firmness in your legs, but that’s a natural consequence of your diseased vein hardening into scar tissues. The firmness will dissipate once the diseased vein is absorbed by the body.

Will I Need Other Treatments After VenaSeal?

The VenaSeal procedure has a nearly perfect (99%) success rate, which means you don’t need another round of treatments. Furthermore, unlike sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy, VenaSeal addresses the root cause of your vein problems, so the risk of recurrence is negligible. Of course, over time, new veins may become diseased, but the same vein won’t cause any more problems, so you won’t need other treatments after VenaSeal.

VenaSeal is one of the best treatments for spider veins and varicose veins because it addresses the root cause of your vascular problems, ensures long-lasting results, and doesn’t involve downtime, harsh side effects, or even the need for compression stockings. Since this procedure concludes within an hour and involves no downtime, it doesn’t have to interfere with your daily schedule.
