The procedure

The procedure

The aim of cyanoacrylate glue occlusion is to close a varicose vein by sticking its walls together. The cyanoacrylate glue is put into the affected vein via a special tube inserted at the top of the great saphenous vein, using ultrasound to guide it. Smaller amounts of local anaesthesia can be used than for some other procedures for varicose veins.
