6.1 The committee noted that cyanoacrylate glue occlusion for varicose veins has the theoretical benefit of allowing people to have outpatient treatment for varicose veins, without the use of tumescent anaesthesia or compression hosiery.

6.2 The committee noted that the published evidence is relatively small and that rare or uncommon risks may not yet be apparent.
