Varicose vein glue is one of the most advanced permanent treatments for varicose veins. During treatment with the VenaSeal system, which is used for the gluing of veins, a disposable set is placed directly into the affected vein under sterile conditions, with which the doctor applies a small amount of glue. The treated vein is then compressed by an ultrasonic probe.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS OF OUR CLIENTS
When can I start to play sports after varicose vein glue treatment?
The advantage of varicose vein glue treatment is its immediate effect. This means that you are not restricted in your normal activities, including sports.
What causes varicose veins?
Varicose veins are produced by increasing venous pressure in the superficial venous system as a result of backflow from deep veins through the non-closing venous valve, the so-called reflux. In layman's terms, the blood ceases to flow in one direction and returns. There is increased venous pressure in the superficial veins, and, varices consequently arise. Both genetics and lifestyle - little movement, sedentary work, being overweight, hormonal contraception, smoking, and the number of pregnancies have an influence on whether or not varicose veins appear.
How is the initial examination by a vascular surgeon performed?
The basics include an interview and finding out what the difficulties are. With exaggeration, treatment occurs through merely a handshake. This is followed by a detailed ultrasonographic examination, where we look for the exact cause of the difficulties and the formation of varicose veins. Then we can tailor the appropriate treatment. At the same time, patients are interested in the expected success. We talk about possible complications and we put together the realistically expected result. The procedure itself is predominantly outpatient, only under local anesthesia or, in the case of using glue on the veins, completely without anesthesia.
