VenaSeal® Sapheon Closure System
VenaSeal offers a minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins that uses an advanced medical adhesive to seal the diseased vein. Before you come for your VenaSeal treatment, your physician or one of the clinic team will have examined your affected leg(s) with an ultrasound scan to assess the vein and to plan the procedure.
How VenaSeal works
The procedure is performed here at our AMG London clinic under local anesthetic. A small catheter is inserted in your diseased vein and small amounts of adhesive are delivered through the catheter until the entire vein segment is sealed. After the procedure, a small bandage will be placed at the vein access site.
The entire procedure takes less than one hour. Results do vary, but we find most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Benefits of the VenaSeal system
The VenaSeal system is quicker and more comfortable than other options as it doesn’t involve multiple needle insertions, for improved comfort over other treatments. Most patients have minimal to almost no bruising, and you probably won’t need to wear a compression stocking after the procedure either.
