The goal of superficial venous reflux disease treatment is to reduce or stop the backward flow of blood and relieve symptoms like varicose veins, swelling, aching, cramping, ulcerations, restlessness and more. Closing or removing the diseased vein directs blood to nearby healthy veins.
Vein Center of Louisiana is first in Louisiana to offer the newest treatment option for venous reflux disease--the VenaSeal™ closure system. It improves blood flow by sealing – or closing – the diseased vein. VenaSeal™ delivers a small amount of specially formulated medical adhesive to the diseased vein. The adhesive immediately seals the vein, and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins.
When it comes to varicose vein treatment ...
You have options.
With this innovative treatment option:
Patients experience little to no pain or bruising.
There's only one small needle stick of numbing medicine where your doctor will access the vein.
No compression stockings are needed after the procedure.
Symptoms caused by the diseased superficial vein may improve as soon as the diseased vein is closed.
Most patients return to normal activity immediately after the procedure.
VenaSeal™ Reduces Discomfort
and Recovery Time
Side effects of the procedure are minor and infrequent. Speak with your doctor about the safety and effectiveness of the VenaSeal™ system.
As with any procedure, insurance coverage may vary. For more information, please contact your insurance provider.
The VenaSeal™ procedure is minimally invasive and catheter-based. As such, it may involve certain risks and may not be right for individuals with certain conditions. Dr. LaGraize and Dr. Luke at the Vein Center of Louisiana can help you decide if the VenaSeal™ procedure is right for you.
