Medical SuperGlue (Cyanoacrylate glue or Venaseal) occlusion of veins has been getting a bit of press over the last 12 months. It is a fairly new procedure to be offered in Australia and claims to be the fastest method of vein closure. Another advantage is that two legs can be treated at the same time; there is no need for anaesthetic and no need to wear compression stockings post-treatment. However the procedure isn't suitable for all veins, there is a relatively high rate of inflammation post treatment.
