Varicose Veins Glue gets approval

by – February 22, 2015

Varicose veins glue is an exciting new treatment for varicose veins. It has just been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in America.

Unlike laser and radiofrequency, the technique of varicose veins glue uses no heat during the treatment.

The heat produced by laser and radiofrequency means that fluid needs to be injected around the veins being treated. This is called “tumescence”. It requires additional injections to be given.

With the Venaseal™ varicose veins glue, only one injection is need for each vein treated. Each injection numbs one patch of skin.

Varicose Veins Glue and The Whiteley Clinic

The Whiteley Clinic was one of the first 3 centres in the UK using Venaseal™ varicose veins glue. Indeed, it was involved in the first Venseal™ study in Europe.

Professor Whiteley and his team train other doctors to use the varicose veins glue. The Whiteley Clinic has a specialist varicose veins training in Guildford, Surrey.
