New VenaSeal™ Closure System

VenaSeal™ is the newest minimally invasive closure system in the industry that treats venous reflux disease using an advanced medical adhesive. Specifically, VenaSeal™ is used to directly close the diseased vein segment while minimizing patient discomfort, reducing recovery time and reducing risk of additional post-operative side effects.

Unlike other heat-based treatments, the VenaSeal™ closure system does not require tumescent anesthesia (multiple injections of a dilute local anesthetic), and eliminates the risk of burning or nerve injury associated with thermal based procedures. The VenaSeal™ adhesive closes the vein and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins.

Venous reflux disease occurs when valves in the veins of the lower leg no longer function properly, which forces blood to flow backward or reflux, resulting in enlarged or varicose veins.

"Varicose veins may be a sign of a more serious condition known as chronic venous insufficiency, which in severe cases, can result in lifestyle-limiting lower leg pain, swelling, skin damage, and ulcerations. With the VenaSeal™ closure system, patients will not only see significant improvements in their symptoms, but they will be able to immediately get back on their feet since there is zero downtime associated with this new treatment."
