What is Cyanoacrylate Bio-Glue treatment?
Cyanoacrylate Bio-Glue treatment, or VenaSeal, is an innovation innovation in the treatment of varicose veins, using cyanoacrylate glue to seal the vein. Cyanoacrylate is a ‘glue-type’ substance which has previously been used in the effective treatment of blood vessel abnormalities (arterio-venous malformations) for over a decade. Recently, there have been further developments and cyanoacrylate has become recognized as an innovative treatment for varicose veins that does not require heating or burning, local anesthesia, or compression post procedure. The results of cyanoacrylate on abnormal veins are very impressive, with clinical studies supporting its effectiveness.
Effective treatment with only local anaesthesia
The VenaSeal procedure is the only non-thermal, non-tumescent, non-sclerosant procedure. The VenaSeal treatment takes the form of a simple injection directly into the varicose vein, guided by ultrasound. It is a quick and convenient treatment requiring only a single minimal dose of local anesthesia at the injection site during the procedure. This is unlike thermal ablation, during which a series of local anaesthetic injections are required.
