What Is Endovenous Cyanoacrylate Closure?

Endovenous Cyanoacrylate Closure, or VenaSeal, is another minimally invasive option to treat incompetent superficial veins using medical-grade adhesive to close your incompetent and diseased vein. By sealing the vein shut, the blood reroutes through healthier veins, improving circulation and reducing the appearance of varicose veins.

For Healthier Veins

The use of cyanoacrylate adhesives in medical procedures dates back to the 1950s. However, in the late 1990s, this technology was applied to treating varicose veins. Since then, EVCC has become a popular treatment option due to its minimally invasive nature and high success rate. EVCC is typically recommended for patients with varicose veins that are causing discomfort or affecting their quality of life. It may also be recommended for patients with chronic venous insufficiency or other venous disorders. Compared to traditional treatments for varicose veins, EVCC offers several advantages, including:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Short recovery time
  • High success rate
  • Reduced risk of complications
  • No need for general anesthesia

VenaSeal: What to Expect

VenaSeal procedures are safely performed in an office using only local anesthetic with fewer needle pokes than radiofrequency. During your procedure, the area where the catheter will be inserted will be cleaned and disinfected. Local anesthesia numbs the treatment area and reduces discomfort during the procedure.

The catheter will be inserted into the diseased vein through a small incision and guided to the treatment area using ultrasound imaging. Once the catheter is in place, the VenaSeal cyanoacrylate glue will be injected into the vein. The glue will seal the vein and prevent blood from flowing through it, reducing symptoms and improving the appearance.

After Your Treatment

After the procedure, you will want to rest for a short period of time. Our medical provider will give you instructions on caring for the treated area and keeping it clean and dry. You may also receive compression stockings to wear to help reduce swelling and promote healing. Overall, Endovenous Cyanoacrylate Closure is safe and effective and can improve the appearance of varicose veins and reduce symptoms.
