Heart and Vascular Care has been recognized for offering high-quality outpatient vein treatment by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
How does VenaSeal work?
If you’ve been determined to be a candidate, the doctor will give you local anesthesia to numb the area that will be treated. A catheter is then inserted into the vein using ultrasound to help guide the tube. Once the catheter is in place, the medical adhesive is delivered into the bulging vein. The doctor will manually compress the vein to help it seal, forcing the blood to divert to the surrounding, healthy veins. The catheter is then removed, and a bandage is placed over the entry point.
What is the advantage of using VenaSeal?
VenaSeal has several advantages over ablation or compression stockings. VenaSeal requires only the initial local anesthesia rather than many needle pricks. The recovery time is very fast, with patients returning to regular activity immediately without having to wear compression stockings for any length of time. The swelling and discomfort of the varicose veins disappear very quickly, and the discoloration will begin to fade. The veins themselves will be absorbed into the leg. Less bruising occurs during this process as well.
