The Saphenion® fact-check vein glue for varicose veins has been published by us in regular succession for 7 years and aims to compare international publications on the subject with our own experiences and to remain meaningful. Our patients are now very well informed about this therapy method for varicose veins, which has been offered for 10 years. After almost 9 years of use, including June / 2021, we have so far treated 1617 patients on 3150 saphenous veins – over 280,000 patients worldwide have now been treated with the vein glue VenaSeal®.
In August 2012 we started with the VenaSeal® system as the third practice in Germany (after Dr Pröbstle, Mannheim and Dr Ahlm, Hamburg). The reason for this change of therapy was the opening of our second practice location Saphenion® Vein Center Rostock on August 1st, 2012. We wanted to get away from anaesthesia and extensive anaesthesia, so the VenaSeal® – system seemed to us to be a very good alternative, as it does not work with thermal energy. From the beginning, we kept comprehensive statistics on the technique of the method, the successes and failures, side effects and complications, and pain and convalescence. After the ever-greater experience with the new system, this also led to adjustments and therapy extensions.
