How Very Closed Vein™ Works

Very Closed Vein is a minimally invasive procedure typically performed on an outpatient basis.

Step 1

CATHETER PLACEMENT

Using ultrasound, a catheter is placed into the diseased vein through a small opening in the skin.

Step 2

HEAT AND SEAL THE DISEASED VEIN

The small catheter uses radio frequency energy to deliver heat to the vein wall.  The heat causes the diseased vessel it to shrink and then seal shut.

Step 3

BLOOD FLOW RE-ROUTES TO HEALTHY VEINS

Once the diseased vein is closed, blood flow will naturally reroute itself to other nearby healthy veins.

After the Very Closed Vein procedure

After the procedure the following is typical:

  • A simple bandage is placed over the insertion site, and additional compression may be provided to aid healing.

  • You will need to wear compression stockings for at least one week after procedure.

  • Your doctor may encourage you to walk, and to refrain from extended standing and strenuous activities for a period of time.

  • The average patient typically resumes normal activities within a few days.

Frequently Asked Questions
About VCV

Is the very closed vein procedure painful?

Most patients feel little to no pain during this minimally invasive procedure. Your physician should give you a local or regional anesthetic to numb the treatment area.

How quickly can I resume normal activity?

The Very Closed Vein procedure allows patients to resume normal activities sooner than some other more invasive treatments such as surgical vein stripping. With the Very Closed Vein procedure, patients typically resume their normal daily activities within a few days. For a few weeks after the procedure, your vein specialist may recommend a regular walking regimen and suggest you refrain from prolonged periods of standing and very strenuous activities such as heavy lifting.

How soon after the very closed vein treatment will my symptoms improve?

Patients often experience a relief of symptoms after only two days and a more noticeable improvement in one to two weeks.

Is there any bruising, scarring, or swelling after the procedure?

Most patients report little to no bruising, scarring, or swelling after the Very Closed Vein procedure.

How is the very closed vein procedure different than vein stripping?

With Vein stripping, incisions are made in the groin and calf, and a tool is used to pull the diseased vein out of the leg. With the Very Closed Vein procedure, only one small incision is made at the site where the catheter is inserted and the vein is then treated and left in place. This minimally invasive approach reduces the likelihood of pain and bruising associated with vein stripping surgery.

Is the very closed vein procedure covered by insurance?

Many insurance companies and Medicare pay for the Very Closed Vein procedure in part or in full. Please discuss your coverage with your insurance provider prior to seeking treatment.

When to seek a Vein Specialist

Lifestyle measures — such as exercise, elevating your legs or wearing compression stockings — can help you ease the pain of varicose veins and may prevent them from getting worse. But if you're concerned about how your veins look, and believe that lifestyle measures haven't stopped your condition from progressing, then schedule a Free Venous Disease Screening at Dr. Veins.

How VenaSeal Works

CATHETER REMOVED

The small catheter is removed from the sealed vein.

Step 4

BANDAGE APPLIED

A bandage is applied to cover the wound.

Step 5

BLOOD FLOW IS REROUTED

Frequently Asked Questions
About VenaSeal

Is the VenaSeal procedure painful?

Most patients feel little to no pain during this minimally invasive procedure.

When can I resume my normal activities?

The VenaSeal procedure is designed to reduce recovery time. Many patients return to normal activity a few days after the procedure. Your vein specialist can help you determine when you can return to normal activity.

When will my symptoms improve?

Most patients experience a noticeable improvement in the symptoms associated with venous insufficiency a few weeks after the procedure.

Is there any bruising after the VenaSeal procedure?

Most patients report little to no bruising after the VenaSeal procedure.

What happens to the VenaSeal adhesive?

Only a small amount of VenaSeal adhesive is used to close the vein. Over time, your body will naturally create scar tissue around the adhesive to keep the vessel permanently closed.

How is the VenaSeal procedure different than vein stripping?

With Vein stripping, incisions are made in the groin and calf, and a tool is used to pull the diseased vein out of the leg. With the VenaSeal procedure, only one small incision is made at the site where the catheter is inserted. Then the vein is sealed shut with adhesive and left in place. This minimally invasive approach reduces the likelihood of pain and bruising associated with vein stripping surgery.

How does VenaSeal differ from the very closed vein procedure?

The goal of both these procedures is the same: to close the disease vein for good – which in turn reduces the symptoms of venous insufficiency. VenaSeal closes the diseased vein with adhesive, while the Very Closed Vein procedure does the same thing with heat.

Is the VenaSeal procedure covered by insurance?

VenaSeal insurance coverage may vary.  For more information, please contact your insurance provider.
