ScleroGlue - the next generation of vein gluing

Today´s thermo-occlusive techniques (Laser, RF) and in the same way ClariVein® and foam sclerotherapy achieve vein regression just in a slow process over weeks and months, while in the initial phase inflammatory reactions with local pain, indurations and discolorations are frequent. Vein gluing could solve the problem, as vein walls will adhere immediately and thus vein size is instantaneously minizmized.

Parallel to the first approved attempt of vein gluing (VenaSeal®, resin-like, hardly resorbable glue) we developed an alternative gluing technique combining foam sclerotherapy (endothelium denaturation) with pointwise gluing (vein sitze reduction). First clinical studies indicate superiority to common gluing (less glue, better vein regression, inclusion of perforators and tributaries). However, we would be more happy with an effective, truly bioresorbable glue.
