Vein closure using cyanoacrylate adhesive (bio glue)

heading1

Service description

This method is mostly applied for treatment of early stage of varicose veins, and in comparison with the previous endovenous methods this is even less invasive (no scars), it is especially sparing, causes no pain and haematoma (haemorrhage) after surgery, as there is no traumatic intervention. The vein is not removed, it is closed after a special safe and harmless bioglue is administered as injection though a single-use catheter, after which the vein transforms into connective tissue. Use of compression stockings is not required after surgery; the recovery period is very short, and no cases of relapse have been observed. The surgery does not require the application of anaesthesia and pain control, as this glue technique is completely painless – there is no thermical impact, as it is in case of laser, radiofrequency and steam method.
