Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy
EXCLUSIVELY DEVOTED & FOCUSED ON VENOUS DISEASE
Sclerotherapy is most often used for smaller varicose veins and spider veins. This procedure can eliminate the pain and discomfort of varicose veins and prevent complications, such as ulcers or vein bleeding. It may also be used simply to improve appearance.
Sclerotherapy uses an injection of a special chemical (sclerosant) into a varicose vein. The chemical irritates and scars the inside of the vein, making it collapse. Over the course of six months, the vein disappears. The entire procedure is done under duplex ultrasound guidance.
Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy is a variation in which a foaming agent is mixed into the injection. The foaming agent moves blood out of the vein so that the chemical can come into better contact with the vein wall. During sclerotherapy treatments, you may feel small needle pricks as the vein is injected. After treatment, you will wear compression stockings for 1 week or more.
