Project Description

Non-Thermal Ablation (VenasealTM) – Q&A

Non-thermal ablation (VenaSealTM) is a procedure that uses a medical adhesive delivered inside a diseased vein. The device is inserted into a diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. When the adhesive is delivered, the diseased vein becomes closed and blood will reroute to healthy veins.

  • Venous Insufficiency – which causes Leg or ankle swelling, Leg Pain and Aching, Leg Cramps, Restless leg, Leg heaviness or fatigue, Burning or Itching skin, Skin Changes or Rash
  • Non-thermal ablation (VenaSealTM) treats venous reflux disease. Venous reflux disease is a progressive medical condition that if left untreated, will likely worsen over time and develop into a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).  CVI leads to more serious outcomes such as poor healing wounds, permanent skin damage, and an increased risk of deep blood clot.
  • The procedure takes about 20-40 minutes.
  • The procedure is almost always a permanent fix for the diseased veins being treated.
  • The number of treatments needed depends on the severity and number of veins that are diseased.
  • Patients get relief/improvement of symptoms after just a few days
  • Patient can immediately resume exercise and go on long flights
  • This provides better outcomes of people that do not walk well or are unable to walk
  • VenasealTM causes minimal to no bruising
