Medical SuperGlue is the latest surgery-free procedure that uses a medical adhesive to safely and effectively treat varicose veins. Unlike other treatments, medical superglue Venaseal (USA) or VenaBlock (Turkey) only requires one local anaesthetic injection. This non-surgical treatment procedure also eliminates the use of heat (or thermal energy) so there is virtually no risk of nerve or skin injury. Once the vein has been glued shut, it will undergo a process of hardening (sclerosis) and will be gradually absorbed by the body.
The Vein Glue procedure involves the placement of a very small amount of the glue into the vein, through a very thin catheter. Once the affected vein is closed, no more leakage can occur through this vein, and the blood is immediately re-routed through other healthy veins of the leg. As the medical superglue sets within a few minutes, there is no prolonged healing process and medical stockings are not required afterwards. There are no necessary steps or precautions to take before or after the procedure and no restrictions on travel.
In some cases, patients will require additional treatment with ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy.
