Biolas Variclose cyanoacrylate glue system

Another first case in private!

Dr Tang and Dr Wong performed the first case in private in Singapore using the Biolas Variclose cyanoacrylate glue system to close off faulty varicose veins in a patient with a venous ulcer. The procedure was done under local anaesthetic and a touch of sedation at the Orchard Surgery Centre with Dr Yeo Sow Nam as the anaesthetist.

The procedure went very well with the patient discharged 2 hours later and walking immediately. Varicose is another type of superglue used as a medical adhesive for blocking off faulty veins in the legs. It has the advantage of being more liquid than some of its competitors allowing dispersion into side branches and minimising the risk of phlebitis post-procedure.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) also known as Arterial Peripheral Vascular Disease refers to blood vessel diseases outside the heart and brain. It occurs due to the buildup of fatty, cholesterol-containing deposits (plaques) on arteries leading to the arms, legs, and feet.

The truncal veins are blood vessels that collect deoxygenated blood from the legs and feet and return it to the heart. These blood vessels are found just below the skin’s surface, including the great and small saphenous veins, anterior accessory saphenous, and Giacomini veins.
