MINIMAL INVASIVE VEINTHERAPY

For the treatment of venous problems, innovative and very gentle therapy methods are available. The noxious congestion in the trunk veins and the leaky venous valves are treated by endovenous thermal ablation using special catheters or ultrasound-controlled foam sclerotherapy. The latest method is the treatment with a special acrylate adhesive (VenaSealTM).

 

Laser- or radiofrequency- catheter

A puncture of the diseased trunk vein under ultrasound control introduces a Radiofrequency Catheter (ClosureFAST®) or a laser catheter into the vein. Controlled heating destroys the affected vein. This is then broken down by the body and dissolves completely after some time. This eliminates the harmful build-up of blood in the vein. The treatment is often outpatient and possible under local anesthesia. There will be no scars! After the procedure, there is hardly any pain only a compression stocking needs to be worn for 7 to 10 days. VENEX is one of the world’s leading centers in this field and has numerous publications in international top medical journals as well as scientific awards.

Acrylic adhesive (VenaSealTM-Verfahren)

Through a special catheter, a medical acrylate adhesive is injected into the diseased trunk vein. The vein is thereby punctured under ultrasound control. The adhesive seals the treated vein, which is then slowly released from the body. Local anesthetic is not necessary because the procedure is not painful. In addition, it is not necessary to wear a compression stocking after the procedure. The application of the method is therefore easily possible in the summer.

Foam- sklerotherapy

In foam sclerotherapy, a sclerosing agent is foamed with air and injected into the vein under ultrasound control. The foam damages the vein wall and thereby destroys the diseased vein, which will become completely dissolved by the body. The treatment is performed on an outpatient basis and without anesthesia. It is also associated with minor side effects and pain. After sclerotherapy, a compression stocking is worn for 7 to 14 days. For optimal results, several treatments are usually required.

Ministripping (Miniphlebektomy)

In this method, serpentine, superficial varicose veins are removed by small punctures with special fine hooks. A seam is not necessary because the stitches will be glued. Ministripping can be done in local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. After the procedure it is necessary to wear compression stockings for 7 days. After a few months the puncture sites will be barely visible.
