Varicose veins on female legs in the area of the knee and calves.

Vein glue is a new treatment made available at Vein Care to treat varicose veins. Although the treatment itself is new, the idea isn’t – neurosurgeons have been using surgical glues to seal brains for more than half a century.

How do they work?

Although different types of vein glue options differ, they are generally used in a similar way.

The glue is injected into the problem vein under ultrasound guidance. The glue then seals the vein. After the vein is sealed, it heals, and the glue is absorbed into the body.

Benefits

Vein glue offers several significant benefits. Firstly, patients will be able to return to their normal activities within the day of the procedure. There is no need for hospitalisation, and the pain rating is minimal. They will also not have to wear a compression stocking.

Unlike some other therapies, there is no risk of burning or nerve-damage.

Cyanoacrylate (VenaBlock or Veinoff)

VenaBlock or VeinOff are types of medical adhesive available for use to treat varicose veins.

VenaBlock or VeinOff involves using ultrasound guidance to inject very small amounts of glue directly into the veins, which instantly seals it and blocks the abnormal leakage of blood. It is recommended to be used in conjunction with sclerotherapy to provide optimal results.

Benefits

VenaBlock and VeinOff are effective, relatively painless and a fast procedures. They are more accurate and effective than other options available for perforator veins.
