What is VenaSeal?

Our VenaSeal in Glen Rock and Edison, NJ is a medical adhesive used in the treatment of varicose veins. It is a unique approach that involves sealing the affected veins with a specially formulated adhesive, effectively closing them and alleviating the symptoms of venous disease.

How does VenaSeal work?

The procedure involves the insertion of a small catheter into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is in place, the VenaSeal adhesive is delivered into the vein, sealing it shut. This closure reroutes blood flow to healthier veins, reducing the symptoms of venous insufficiency.

What are the benefits of VenaSeal?

  • Minimally invasive: Unlike traditional surgical options, VenaSeal is minimally invasive with no need for general anesthesia.
  • Quick recovery: Patients typically experience minimal discomfort and can return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
  • No compression stockings required: Unlike other vein treatments, VenaSeal doesn't require the use of compression stockings post-procedure.
  • High success rate: VenaSeal has a high success rate in treating the appearance and discomfort associated with varicose veins.

What can VenaSeal treat?

VenaSeal is primarily used to treat:

  • Varicose veins: Enlarged, twisted veins, typically appearing on the legs, which cause discomfort, swelling, and aching.
  • Chronic venous insufficiency: A condition where the veins in the legs are unable to efficiently send blood back to the heart, with many uncomfortable symptoms, including leg swelling, varicose veins, aching or pain in the legs, leg heaviness, skin discoloration, itching or irritated skin in the affected area, and in severe cases, venous leg ulcers.
