The VenaSeal Closure System treatment procedure is used to treat symptomatic venous reflux disease in the lower extremity superficial venous system. Additionally, the VenaSeal system is intended for the permanent closure of lower extremity superficial truncal veins in people with clinically symptomatic venous reflux, often the underlying cause of painful varicose veins. It uses a small amount of a specially formulated medical adhesive to seal or close the diseased vein, thereby allowing blood to get rerouted to nearby healthy veins. Finally, it is the only non-thermal, non-tumescent, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a formulated medical adhesive, approved as a new concept of treatment for incompetent veins.
VenaSeal Closure System is a medical device available as a sterile, single-patient kit consisting of the VenaSeal adhesive (cyanoacrylate) and VenaSeal delivery system components. While it is simple, the VenaSeal system is designed to be used only by a trained, licensed physician with the help of Duplex Ultrasound imaging. The procedure involves the medical adhesive filled into a syringe which is inserted into the VenaSeal Closure System’s dispensing gun that is attached to a catheter. Under Ultrasound guidance, the trained clinician advances the catheter into the diseased vein through an access site on the leg. With compression applied to the leg throughout the procedure, the catheter is carefully positioned in specific areas along the diseased vein and medical adhesive is delivered by a series of trigger pulls at the gun.
VenaSeal Closure System procedure is a medical advent that allows utmost patient comfort and minimizes recovery time in the treatment of Venous diseases. The access site on the leg will require only a small bandage to be placed. The procedure enables patients to return to normal activities with immediate effect. There is minimal bruising following the VenaSeal Closure System procedure as compared to other available procedures. This treatment, as per clinical studies, has demonstrated extreme safety and high permanent closure rates.
Moreover, the VenaSeal Closure System relieves venous insufficiency symptoms impacting patient quality of life such as aching, throbbing, edema, irreversible skin changes, and/or chronic ulceration in a safer, more comfortable, and faster manner.
The advantages of the VenaSeal Closure System are that:
- It is a simple, outpatient procedure
- There is no requirement for tumescent Anaesthesia
- There is less pain and bruising experienced than thermal ablation
- Faster recovery time than thermal ablation
- Compression stockings are not mandatory after the procedure
Contraindications for the use of VenaSeal Closure System are the existence of:
- previous hypersensitivity reactions to the adhesive
- acute superficial thrombophlebitis
- thrombophlebitis migrans
- acute sepsis
Therefore, VenaSeal Closure System is highly recommended by clinical professionals for its high success rate and reliability.
