What is Venaseal?

The VenaSeal Procedure is a revolutionary new varicose vein treatment that allows us to treat patients with the most minimally invasive treatment available. Medical grade "glue" is used to seal the refluxing saphenous vein, the common cause of varicose veins. VenaSeal was just FDA approved, and the data supporting at least medium-term success is quite solid.

How does it work?

Using a small IV access site, we can slide a tiny catheter into the incompetent vein. Under ultrasound guidance, we then inject very small quantities of the "glue", which is actually a cyanoacrylate-based adhesive.

What should I expect after the procedure?

This medication leads to permanent closure and obliteration of the weak vein and helps resolve lower leg varicose veins, as well as the associated symptoms of aching, heaviness, itching, and pain. Patients can expect to experience little pain during this procedure. Recovery is immediate.

Why Capitol Vein and Laser Centers?

While the most studied and successful treatment of saphenous vein reflux is the VNUS Closure Procedure, the VenaSeal system is an option to consider, though currently insurance reimbursement for VenaSeal is unavailable.
