92 months treatment with vein glue - our results, our experiences in sealing of 2700 truncal varicose veins

The presentation is about long-time experiences over nearly 8 years in VenaSeal® - treatment of 2700 truncal varicose veins.

Since 20 years by now, varicosis has been increasingly treated endovenously. At the start, the rather inconvenient VNUS®Closure plus - procedure and the more convenient linear laser procedure were used, and these were followed in 2006 / 2007 by the bipolar RFITT® catheter, the VNUS® Closure Fast system, and the radial laser.

Thus, in the course of the last few years, plenty of experience has been gathered with endoluminal therapy, quality criteria have been defined and standards for the different techniques have been developed.

The presentation sheds light on the indications, advantages, and disadvantages of sealing veins with the VenaSeal® - system.

We will present the 8 years - results of a single - center praxis study with a prospective design.

We will report about our experiences and results in the treatment of 2700 truncal varicose veins
