The VenaSeal procedure eliminates pain and side effects while treating diseased veins. Your doctor will discuss all necessary concerns and precautions with you before the procedure.
Topical anesthetic numbs the area before the procedure. You may feel tugging or pulling sensations during catheter insertion. You shouldn’t feel any pain. Once properly positioned, the dispensing gun within the catheter dispenses medical adhesive to close the vein. Patients shouldn’t feel any associated sensation during this part of the procedure. Additional tugging or pressure may be noticeable during the removal of the catheter, but this will be brief.
After VenaSeal, patients are free to return to normal daily activities. You may experience minimal swelling or bruising.
