How Effective is the VenaSeal Procedure?

The published success of the VenaSeal Closure Procedure is up to 98.9% (VeClose Study), with far fewer complications than EVLA or surgery.

VenaSeal has been meticulously trialed in the United States and Europe over the last 5 years.  Results published show a low risk of complications and excellent medium-term results.  The VeClose Study out of Germany, showed a 98.9% closure rate at 6 months.  VenaSeal is considered as effective as Endovenous Laser Ablation but does not involve the use of heat and can therefore be performed with the application of a small amount of local anaesthetic as opposed to a Nerve Block or large volumes of Tumescent Anaesthetic.

It is possible to treat two or more veins in the one session.   Stockings are usually not necessary and patients are able to return to normal activities immediately.   Surface Varicose Veins are usually 2-4 weeks after the VenaSeal Procedure with either Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy or Ambulatory Phlebectomy.

With VenaSeal, medical grade glue, is placed within the diseased vein using a small catheter. VenaSeal effectively glues the vein wall together within seconds. Over the coming hours, the treated vein will permanently harden over and eventually undergo absorption by the body over several months. The VenaSeal procedure takes between 15-20 minutes and is carried out strictly under local anaesthetic.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) has become a gold standard treatment for most patients suffering from varicose veins since its introduction to Phlebology Practices over 10 years ago. It is a minimally invasive alternative to Venous Stripping and provides a safe and effective solution to the symptoms and appearance of varicose veins.

A common question in our practice is "will my veins come back after they are treated with sclerotherapy". So, how effective is Sclerotherapy?
