How do you treat varicose veins using minimal local anaesthetic?

There new innovative techniques have been developed recently that voids the need for local anaesthetic. These methods are called Clarivein and Venaclose.

During both of these procedures:

  • Our vascular surgeon will use an ultrasound scan to view images of your vein to guide the surgeon during the treatment.
  • Local anaesthetic is applied only to the entry site of the diseased vein.
  • Our vascular surgeon will thread either the Clarevein probe, a rotating wire and chemical solution into the vein or in the case of Venaclose, inject a harmless ‘glue’ along the length of the diseased vein.
  • In both cases the vein is then broken down and dispersed by the body and alternative veins are used to pump blood to the heart.
