VenaSeal is an FDA-approved system used to permanently treat varicose veins close to the surface of the skin. A catheter is inserted through the skin, and a small amount of medical glue is injected into the affected vein. This type of procedure eliminates the risk of nerve injury when treating the small saphenous vein, which is sometimes a risk associated with specific thermal-based procedures. This procedure is administered without the use of local anesthesia, avoiding patient discomfort associated with multiple needle sticks.
