The Bend Bulletin releases article “Bend clinic first in state to use Super Glue for veins“. Published Nov 19, 2015.
“VenaSeal will be used to treat common vein condition called venous reflux disease. This condition occurs when the veins in the legs that deliver deoxygenated blood to the heart and lungs, and return oxygenated blood to the legs, widen over time, causing blood to pool in the lower leg. Results in what is called varicose veins, swollen jumbles of veins visible on the skins surface.” -Tara Bannow/The Bulletin
“The advances are that it’s even less invasive than the prior techniques, it doesn’t require needle sticks up the thigh and there is no need for compression afterword.” -Dr Andrew Jones
