Experience the VenaSeal™ Closure System

The VenaSeal™ closure system is the only non-tumescent, non-thermal, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a proprietary medical adhesive delivered endovenously to close the vein. This unique approach eliminates the risk of nerve injury when treating the small saphenous vein, which is a risk sometimes associated with certain thermal-based procedures.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Before the VenaSeal™ Closure Procedure:

You will have an ultrasound imaging exam of the leg that is to be treated. This exam is important for assessing the diseased superficial vein and planning the procedure.

During the Procedure:

Dr. Oblonsky can discuss the procedure with you. A brief summary of what to expect is below:

You may feel some minor pain or stinging with a needle stick to numb the site where the doctor will access your vein.

Once the area is numb, Dr. Oblonsky will insert the catheter (i.e., a small hollow tube) into your leg. You may feel some pressure from the placement of the catheter.

The catheter will be placed in specific areas along the diseased vein to deliver small amounts of the medical adhesive. You may feel some mild sensation of pulling or tugging. Ultrasound will be used during the procedure to guide and position the catheter.

After treatment, the catheter is removed and a bandage placed over the puncture site.

After the Procedure:

You will be taken to the recovery area to rest. Dr. Oblonsky will discuss with you what observations will be performed following treatment.
