A Remarkable Treatment Paradigm

 


Dr. John Rossi and Dr. David Calcagno are very proud to have been the first and only vascular surgeons in Central Pennsylvania to be trained on the VenaSeal™ Closure System.

About this breakthrough, Dr. Rossi said, “Every once in a while in a medical career, a phenomenal new technology totally changes the way we treat a disease process. We did the first two patients in Pennsylvania in early 2016. I think VenaSeal™ is going to revolutionize the treatment of vein disease and make it less invasive than it has been in the past.”

How the VenaSeal™ Closure System is unique.
VenaSeal™ uses a remarkable, proprietary adhesive that stretches as a catheter is pulled back within the damaged vein. The operator then compresses the vein for three minutes, basically gluing the vein shut and eliminating the abnormal pathway by which the blood is falling backwards in your legs, pressurizing your veins and causing varicose veins. The vein and the glue are then absorbed by your body and that treats your disease. A small band-aid is then placed your leg and you walk out of the office.

VenaSeal™ Closure System advantages include:

  • No need for tumescent anesthesia on the leg
  • Improved patient comfort
  • Rapid return to normal activities
  • No multiple needle sticks
  • Minimal to no bruising
  • Basically no post-procedure pain
  • Patients walk out with a band-aid to close a small puncture
  • No post-procedure compression stockings
  • 99% effective with no incidents of clots
