Medical Adhesive Closure

Medical adhesive closure uses ‘medical glue (cyanoacrylate)’ which is a minimally invasive, non-thermal treatment for varicose veins. Medical glue has been used for many years in several other medical procedures for other body areas, for example in brain aneurysms. Like in ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, ultrasound is used to direct the injection of medical glue within the deeper abnormal superficial veins, once injected external hand pressure is applied to the treated vein resulting in the vein walls bonding together.

Medical Adhesive Closure is a unique, minimally invasive treatment that uses a safe-for-the-body medical glue to quickly and effectively treat varicose veins. Unlike other treatments, it does not require anesthesia to be injected into the leg via multiple needle sticks (tumescent anesthesia).

This procedure requires no anesthesia to be injected into the leg around the vein; only a small amount of numbing medicine at the access site is used. This vein treatment system has little to no pain or discomfort, both during and after the procedure. It is considered to be the varicose vein treatment associated with minimal discomfort.

Unlike heat-based procedures, with the use of “medical glue,” there is no risk of skin burns or heat-related nerve damage. It usually does not require any post-treatment pain medication or uncomfortable compression stockings.

After the procedure, you should be able to return to your normal activities immediately. Patients have reported minimal to no scarring, bruising, or swelling. The main contraindication of using Cyanoacrylate (Glue) is an autoimmune disease or previous severe allergic reaction to the glue. Glue is not suitable for all patients, please speak to our expert doctor.

Medical Adhesive Closure is a minimally invasive technique used for vein closure, replacing traditional methods like vein stripping. It involves the application of a medical adhesive to seal the affected vein. Unlike traditional procedures, this method does not require incisions, leading to faster recovery times and reduced postoperative discomfort.

The treatment procedure for Medical Adhesive Closure typically begins with a thorough evaluation by a vascular specialist, such as Dr. Niloofar Yazdani. After confirming the suitability for the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered, and a catheter is inserted into the affected vein. The medical adhesive is then introduced through the catheter, sealing the vein. Patients often experience minimal discomfort, and the entire procedure is performed on an outpatient basis.

Medical Adhesive Closure offers several advantages, including minimal scarring, reduced postoperative pain, and a quicker return to normal activities. Since it is a non-surgical procedure, there is a lower risk of complications, and patients appreciate the convenience of outpatient treatment. Dr. Niloofar Yazdani may recommend this method for its effectiveness and patient-friendly attributes.

While Medical Adhesive Closure is effective for certain types of vein issues, it may not be suitable for everyone. Dr. Niloofar Yazdani will assess each patient individually to determine the most appropriate treatment. As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks, but they are generally minimal. Patients are encouraged to discuss their medical history and concerns with Dr. Yazdani to ensure a personalized and safe treatment experience.
