Varicose veins are caused by reflux (reverse blood flow) in the veins.
Risk factors: age, female sex, genetically determined weakening of the venous wall and valve structure, pregnancy, sitting or standing work, obesity.
Varicose veins treatment is aimed at reducing or stopping reflux, which leads to an improvement in overall blood flow and relieves the symptoms of the disease. Closing or removing a diseased vein directs blood to nearby healthy veins.
Treatment of varicose veins with the VenaBLOCK system is an innovative, non-surgical method. Its essence is to close the varicose vein using a special bioacrylic glue (the vein is sealed and the blood is sent to healthy veins).
VenaBLOCK system bio-adhesive:
- absolutely safe and hypoallergenic preparation;
- completely biodegrades over time;
- the system has been actively used for more than 7 years in modern clinics in Turkey, Europe, Australia, India and has shown excellent results;
- has European certification;
- VenaBLOCK system is also registered in Ukraine.
How is VenaBLOCK treatment performed?
- Local anesthesia: a thin needle is used to anesthetize the place where the tube will be inserted, which will provide access to the vein
- Catheter positioning: a special catheter is inserted into a vein under ultrasound guidance
- Gluing the vein: a special pistol-injector is used, through which bio-glue is injected into the lumen of the vein
- Completion of the procedure: the catheter is removed from the vein and the puncture site is sealed with a plaster
When can I return to my normal activities?
One of the advantages of treatment with the VenaBLOCK system is the absence of a rehabilitation period. Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. The phlebologist of the Medical Club Grace clinic during the consultation will help you choose one or those methods of treatment that are right for you.
