VenaSeal™ is one of the biggest breakthroughs in minimally-invasive treatment of varicose veins in the last 15 years. It is a major advancement in treating vein insufficiency, varicose veins, and other vein diseases. When veins don’t work properly, they do not sufficiently return blood from the legs up to the heart, which can result in pain, aching, heaviness, cramping, swelling, itchiness or tingling in the legs. VenaSeal treatment for varicose veins can seal off the damaged veins and reroute blood through healthier veins. The treatment is designed for varicose veins that produce mild to moderate symptoms such as pain, blood clots, or skin ulcers. Patients find relief from varicose veins with this non-surgical procedure and resume activities the same day. This procedure is recognized as being the least painful.
This procedure uses minimally invasive technology to treat venous insufficiency by an endovenous approach. The VenaSeal™ closure system improves blood flow by safely and effectively closing the diseased vein. The system delivers a small amount of a proprietary medical adhesive to the diseased vein. The adhesive closes the vein and blood is rerouted through nearby healthy veins.
Dr. Ruz was the first one in Quebec to use this innovative technology, which is effective and very well tolerated by its patients.
You will have an ultrasound imaging exam of the leg that is to be treated. This exam is important for assessing the diseased superficial vein and planning the procedure.
