ISTANBUL (AA) – Developed and produced by a Turkish medical company, VenaBlock treatment helps get rid of varicose veins in minutes.
The company INVAMED exports VenaBlock, also known as the Turkish Glue, to more than 80 countries.
VenaBlock is used in the treatment of varicose veins where a medical adhesive is injected into the vein in the leg under ultrasound guidance.
In VenaBlock treatment, the patient is hospitalized on the same day and discharged within an hour. After the procedure, which takes about 10-15 minutes, the patient can stand up and go home on foot or by car.
There is no need to use elastic bandages and compression stockings after the procedure, and there is no pain or scarring in the procedure performed without anesthesia.
After the VenaBlock treatment, a cutting-edge treatment of varicose veins, patients can continue their daily life activities without interruption.
There is no seasonal obstacle in the treatment of varicose veins but the majority of patients prefer winter or spring.
The formation of varicose veins, the most common venous disease worldwide, is mostly a genetic predisposition. Excess weight, pregnancy, sedentary life, and standing for long hours are among the factors that cause varicose veins.
