VenaSeal™ Closure System

About the VenaSeal™ Closure System

The VenaSeal™ closure system is the only non-tumescent, non-thermal, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a proprietary medical adhesive delivered endovenously to close the vein.  This unique approach eliminates the risk of thermal nerve injury when treating the small saphenous vein, which is a risk sometimes associated with certain thermal-based procedures. Clinical studies have demonstrated that the procedure is safe and effective.  The procedure is administered without the use of tumescent anesthesia, avoiding patient discomfort associated with multiple needle sticks.

Method of Action

The VenaSeal™  proprietary cyanoacrylate-based adhesive safely and effectively closes the diseased vein segment.

  • VenaSeal™ adhesive is delivered in 0.10 cc allotments along the length of the targeted vein.
  • The propriety catheter is highly visible under ultrasound, for precise delivery of the adhesive.

The procedure can be completed in an office or hospital setting and requires no additional capital equipment.

Recovery

Demonstrated Results The VenaSeal™ closure system was shown to be effective in three clinical studies, with demonstrated safety and high closure rates.

VenaSeal™Potential Risks

As with all medical procedures, there is a chance that complications may occur, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Allergic reaction to the VenaSeal™ adhesive
  • Arteriovenous fistula (i.e., an abnormal connection between an artery and a vein)
  • Bleeding from the access site
  • Deep vein thrombosis (i.e., blood clot in the deep vein system)
  • Edema (i.e., swelling) in the treated leg
  • Hematoma (i.e., the collection of blood outside of a vessel)
  • Hyperpigmentation (i.e., darkening of the skin)
  • Infection at the access site
  • Neurological deficits including stroke and death
  • Non-specific mild inflammation of the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissue
  • Pain
  • Paresthesia (i.e., a feeling of tingling, pricking, numbness or burning)
  • Phlebitis (i.e., inflammation of a vein)
  • Pulmonary embolism (i.e., blockage of an artery in the lungs)
  • Urticaria (i.e., hives) or ulceration may occur at the site of injection
  • Vascular rupture and perforation
  • Visible scarring
