No stockings needed

Would it be possible to have a chance of treating varicose veins without stockings ?This was only a dream until a few months ago. Stockings were the mainstay of any varicose veins treatment, be it open surgery or minimally invasive techniques like Endovenous Laser Ablation, Radiofrequency Ablation or even the relatively newer Mechanico Chemical Ablation techniques like Clarivein. Percutaneous Sclerotherapy too would need the patient to wear stockings for 6 - 18 weeks to help the treated veins heal.

Pleasant treatment experience

Traditional methods like EVLA or RFA require multiple needle pricks along the path of the vein to numb the area. This can be an uncomfortable process and few patients would actually need Sedation or even Spinal Anaesthesia to help with the pain.

Now, varicose veins care can be a pleasant experience. With the onset of this Non Thermal technique, the patient no longer needs to be given multiple local anaesthesia pricks that are given in Thermal techniques like EVLA or RFA. This is called tumusence or tumescent anaesthesia. This is usually a mix or local anaesthetic medication and saline, usually about 500 ml would need to be injected around the vein to lock in the heat in the target vein and prevent other healthy tissues from burning.

Just one prick per vein

The Venaseal procedure involves just one prick per vein, similar to an IV line placement. The procedure is done via this one single needle prick. This greatly increases patient comfort during the procedure. As no other anaesthesia medicine or saline injection needs to be given, this procedure is safe for older patients who may have other health issues like heart disease.

Venaseal system delivers an adhesive inside the vein in a controlled manner that closes the target vein immediately, as compared to 6 - 18 weeks for other methods. This gives benefits faster and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure.

The Venaseal procedure does not require patients to wear stockings afterwards, this saves a lot of trouble and makes recovery more comfortable.

Experts trust Venaseal

Varicose Veins affects more than 10 million Indians every year. Newer techniques like Venaseal would help in curing more fellow Indians faster and more comfortably.It is a real boon for the older population with advanced vein disease like severe pain, skin damage and open wounds which earlier could not be treated as they would not be fit enough for anaesthesia.”

What is Varicose veins?

Varicose Veins are twisted and bulgy veins that protrude on the surface of the skin. Spider veins are similar, but less obvious. These blue and red tattoo like lines on the skin, as well as the varicose veins are commonly found in the legs and occur primarily due to enlarged and weakened vein walls and faulty valves. This leads to a painful and problematic condition that sometimes necessitates spider/varicose vein treatment.
