As the summer months are a time when many people take vacations, it is a good time to get veins treated. So, today, we are decoding the facts about one of the latest minimally invasive technology offerings at the Alabama Vein Center: VenaSeal™ closure system.
This closure treatment option treats venous disease using only an advanced medical adhesive, and most patients can return to normal activity almost immediately.
How it works:
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 is placed into the vein through a catheter and quickly closes the vein, rerouting blood through nearby healthy veins.
There is minimal pain during and after the procedure as compared to other treatment options as well as minimal post-procedure bruising. Symptoms often improve as soon as the diseased vein is closed and recovery time is quick.
In general, most patients may return to normal activity right after the procedure. As in every case, there are always risks of vein irritation and inflammation, but are rare with VenaSeal.
