The VenaSeal™ closure system is the only approved device with a specially formulated medical adhesive that closes diseased or varicose veins. Traditional vein closure methods such as EVLT (laser) use intense heat requiring multiple anesthetic injections. The VenaSeal™ closure system requires only one anesthetic injection site and creates less discomfort during the procedure, decreased soreness post procedure and minimizes bruising.
How does it work?
During the procedure, a trained clinician fills a syringe with the medical adhesive, which is inserted into the VenaSeal™ closure system’s dispensing gun that is attached to a catheter. The catheter is advanced into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. The catheter is placed in specific areas along the diseased vein and the clinician conducts a series of trigger pulls to deliver the medical adhesive. Compression is applied to the leg during the procedure.

Is the VenaSeal™ closure system procedure covered by insurance?
