PEI promotes VenaSealâ„¢ as a significant new treatment for Varicose Veins

PEI continues to promote Venaseal™ the new and almost painless treatment for variscose veins, now available in Ireland. Recently, the company attended the Woman's World 2014 event which took place at the RDS. The event was attended by thousands of women and their families, and featured exhibits on several lifestyle and heathcare related issues.

PEI hosted a very simple varicose vein clinic, informing attendees of what varicose veins are, why they occur and how they can be treated. Traditionally, the most effective solution for varicose veins was a painful procedure called "vein stripping" where the damaged veins were removed from the patient's leg. Now there are alternatives, and some, like  VenaSeal™, are practically painless and can have you back on your feet literally the very next day!

The VenaSeal™ Sapheon Closure System is a unique minimally invasive treatment that uses a medical adhesive to safely and effectively treat varicose veins. Unlike other treatments, VenaSeal™ does not require full leg anesthesia or sedatives, allowing patients to return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment. The VenaSeal™ procedure also eliminates the risk of burning or nerve injury associated with thermal based procedures and generally does not require any post-treatment pain medication or uncomfortable compression stockings.

A physician uses ultrasound to position a tiny catheter into the diseased area of the vein through a small puncture site in the skin. Next, the VenaSeal™ dispenser delivers a small amount of medical adhesive to seal the vein. Once the diseased vein is sealed, blood is re-routed through other healthy veins in the leg.

VenaSeal™ Sapheon Closure System is the only procedure to use a medical adhesive to seal the vein, which eliminates the need for full leg anesthesia and pre-procedure sedatives. Unlike other varicose vein treatments, there is virtually no time away from work and little to no discomfort.

Needless to say patients are delighted with the alternative to vein stripping and are thrilled at how quickly they can be back on their feet.

" I recently had the VENASEAL treatment and am very happy to say it was a great success. In under 1 hour my veins were treated with only 1 local anaesthetic needed.  I didn’t have to wear compression stockings which are so hard to put on normally, I had no pain or bruising and I played a full round of golf the next day! I would recommend VENASEAL without hesitation to people who are looking for a simple fast solution to varicose veins.” 

Gobbie Moran, Dublin, May 2014. 

“VENASEAL was a much simpler procedure than I was expecting. I felt one little nick from the local anaesthetic and that was it. My friends had a lot of discomfort and had to wear stockings which they hated. I walked out of the clinic with no pain or bruises, veins gone and played a full round of golf next day. Delighted with the results.“
