Endoablation: new method to seal varicose veins without surgery

Venous Endoablation with Cyanoacrylate is a novel procedure to close varicose veins in a non-surgical way. Compared to traditional techniques, this treatment has better results because it is less invasive and causes less pain.
This method consists of applying a medical adhesive that seals the diseased vein so that blood does not circulate through it and is redistributed to healthy veins.

What are the advantages?

One of the great advantages is that recovery is immediate and has no side effects. On the other hand, it is performed on an outpatient basis, does not require subsequent bandages and only requires anesthesia at a single point. That is, patients can return to their normal life in 24 hours.

What does the treatment consist of?

First, an access is made in the vein to be treated, through which a 2 to 3 millimeter catheter is introduced, and a medical adhesive belonging to the cyanoacrylate family is injected. The reaction of the chemical with the blood generates a plug that firmly adheres to the vein walls and helps to seal it. The blood is then redirected through other healthy pathways in the leg and the glue is transformed into a fibrous tissue that is reabsorbed by the body itself.
The type of adhesive used in Venous Endoablation does not imply any type of toxic risk for the organism, since cyanoacrylate has been proven for more than 50 years in the history of medicine. In addition, the treatment is controlled with an Ecodoppler, which allows the vascular surgeon to have a precise vision of the correct application of the glue.
