What is Glue Treatment?

For many years, glue or cyanoacrylate had been used for treating abnormal vessels in the brain and liver. It’s also a popular alternative for sealing together cuts on faces and other body areas. Recently, glue has been adopted for varicose vein closures. Special “super glues” have been designed specifically for treating varicose veins. Intensive testing proved they are very effective and extremely safe for abnormal vein treatments.

How does it work? Very simple: when the glue meets the vein wall, it immediately causes it to come together and seal the atypical vein, which slowly disappears over time. In Australia there are a few different glues available, for instance Venaseal and Venablock. Both are available as a catheter-guided option and Venablock can be injected directly under ultrasound guidance.

How is the Glue Treatment performed?

We efficiently access the targeted vein via ultrasound guidance. Next, we catheterize it with a special glue that is injected right into the vein through a small needle. Under slight pressure, we ensure the vein walls come together. Last but not least, we double-check the closure of the vein with a duplex ultrasound.

This procedure has many benefits such as: it only requires a small amount of local anaesthetic, it’s a “walk-in, walk out” procedure. Yes, no hospital stay and no general anaesthetic needed. It’s very well tolerated by most patients. Plus, you can instantly get back to your daily routine due to minimal to no downtime.
