Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is a modality for treating perforators and painful, large varicose veins. The injection therapy, using a small needle, is inserted directly into the vein with ultrasound guidance. There is minimal pain on injection. A foaming solution technique (Foam Therapy), with FDA approved sodium tetradecyl is used. The chemical solution irritates the lining of the vessel causing it to swell and stick together. Ultrasound guidance is a procedure done in the office. After treatment you will remain lying on the table approximately 30 minutes. The result is a more accurate, non-evasive treatment that will relieve your symptoms.
