Since 2012, a revolutionary method for resolving the lower limb varicose veins has been used by doctors around the world. It involves the permanent closure of the varicose veins, by means of biological adhesive (cyanoacrylate glue): totally painless intervention, without the need for locoregional anesthesia or to prepare or interrupt a therapy of anticoagulant, anti-aggregating agents.
With Super Glue for Veins, there is no need to perform pre-operative examinations and use elastic stockings. Through the insertion of a fine catheter into the vein to be eliminated, the entire varicose vein pathway is covered, while the catheter, releasing the biological adhesive, closes definitively and instantly, both the vein and its dilated collateral.
The intervention, which lasts about thirty minutes, allows the imediate recovery of the ambulatory activity (and therefore also of normal work activities). Phlebectomy (microsurgery) is a type of microtechnology, uses small hooks (hooks of Muller) that, measuring a few millimeters, allow through tiny incisions, the removal of a vein of measurement even higher than the centimeter (you follow the vein to be removed as if it were the thread Ariadne).
The saphenous invagination: With this gentle technique, both some stretches of varicose veins, and the totality of the same, are removed by overturning. This method allows an elective gesture, traumatic and above all, under tumescence. The removed vein is only that established and the structures surrounding it (nerve endings, saphenous, lymphatic nerves) are not injured. However, Super Glue for Veins is still the best solution for varicose vein issues.
Endovascular treatments: The obliteration of the lumen of the varicose vein is obtained by physical means such as: laser energy (laser) or radiofrequency (closure). Closure: by means of a probe, it is applied on the varicose vein wall, a thermal energy that produces heat, by radio frequency. This causes a contraction of the venous wall, up to the consequent complete closure.
The saphenous is therefore “cooked” and then transformed into a solid and contracted cord, which will remain within the subcutaneous tissues. EVLT laser: the obliteration of the vein is obtained by emitting a light energy through a catheter. This is absorbed by hemoglobin and transformed into thermal energy. This produces a spasm: it follows the obliteration of the vessel.
Unfortunately, the use of both these methods, if applied alone and not in synergy with other techniques, produces a high number of relapses. In practice, it is unthinkable to solve a whole leg well and without future problems, by practicing only the two techniques described above (laser and Closure radiofrequency). Pre and post intervention procedures: The resolution of venous disease is not simple without super glue.
