VenaSeal Closure System
What is VenaSeal?
VenaSeal is the latest minimally invasive technology available for treating patients that suffer from vein disease. It is the first technology that uses a medical adhesive to seal the veins causing pain and suffering.
Coastal Vein and Vascular Specialists is proud to be the leading vein center in South Florida that uses this new and innovative technology.
Advantages of using VenaSeal
Minimally Invasive – Patients can resume normal activity immediately! No compression stockings or Ace bandage wrap is required. Many patients will go back to work or play a round of golf the same day. Imagine that – get your veins done in the morning and you are on the golf course an hour later!
Painless – The VenaSeal procedure requires only a single access point in the vein using a small injection of local anesthetic
Quick – Most procedures will take about 20 minutes to complete in our office
Effective – The procedural success rate is 98%
No Wait Time – the VenaSeal system does not require a three month trial of compression stockings prior to the procedure.
What can I expect from the VenaSeal procedure?
Before the procedure
You will see one of our vein specialists at CVVS for a consultation. An ultrasound will identify which veins require treatment. A Board Certified Vascular Surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for the VenaSeal system. Your surgeon will discuss every detail about the procedure and will answer all questions you may have.
On the day of the procedure, you will be asked to wear loose clothing for your arrival to the office. You are able to eat and drink as you wish prior to the procedure.
During the Procedure
At Coastal Vein and Vascular Specialists, we have a dedicated private room just for vein procedures.
After you remove your pants, you will be covered in a sheet and placed on a comfortable stretcher. Our CVVS Certified Medical Assistant will help you get situated. Your leg will be prepped with a sterile solution and placed on top of a sterile drape.
A CVVS Board Certified Vascular Surgeon will use an ultrasound to identify the affected vein in your leg that will need the procedure. You will receive a very small injection with local anesthetic to the access area of the vein.
Once the area in numb, your doctor will insert the catheter (small tube) into the vein. You may feel slight pressure in the area, but you will experience no pain or significant discomfort.
The catheter will be placed in specific areas along the vein to deliver a small amount of medical adhesive. An ultrasound will be used during the procedure to guide the catheter positioning and watch the vein while the medical adhesive is being delivered.
After treatment, the catheter will be removed and a band-aid will be placed at the insertion point.
After the Procedure
You will be taken to the recovery area to rest.
Your CVVS surgeon will recommend appropriate follow-up care.
You can resume your normal daily activities immediately with no restrictions.
