The latest point in varicose vein treatment: Venablock

Cardiovascular Surgery Specialist Prof. Dr. Yavuz Beşoğul talked about the Venablock method used in the treatment of varicose veins.
Treatments for varicose veins have developed a lot in the last 10 years. Removal of varicose veins through surgical incision, which was previously performed under general anesthesia, has come to the point of abandonment due to post-operative pain, long-term use of socks after hospitalization for at least 1 day, difficulties such as check-ups, and risks such as rare clots from the removed vein area to the lungs. Thereupon, procedures such as laser and radiofrequency, which are a little more comfortable for the patient but require anesthesia and may cause complaints such as burning and pain during the procedure, requiring at least 1 day of hospitalization, have been developed and are still performed in most centers today. However, varicose vein treatment continued to be developed and the latest development today is "VenaBlock".

VenaBlock offers a unique and superior treatment for varicose veins. In this treatment, the patient is admitted on the same day and the procedure is performed within 1 hour and the patient is discharged. Moreover, he does not even need to wear socks after 1 day. He does not receive anesthesia and does not feel pain. It doesn't leave any traces. In this method, cyanoacrylate glue is used with a small needle under ultrasound guidance to close varicose (non-functional) veins. The procedure takes 10-15 minutes and the patient gets up and goes home by walking or driving.

This glue has been used for many years on other parts of the body as a safe “medical adhesive.” However, recently it has become available for varicose veins. It has been shown to have no negative short- and long-term side effects and to be extremely safe.

Unlike other endovenous procedures such as laser or radiofrequency, VenaBlock does not require large volumes of anesthesia; in most patients, a single injection of local anesthesia at the needle insertion site is sufficient and the patient can immediately return to normal daily activities.

In short, it is a painless, inflammation-free and much superior treatment method compared to the old varicose vein treatments.
