About Ultrasound Guided Sclerofoam

Ultrasound guided sclerofoam is an endovenous chemical treatment for varicose veins which is performed under local anesthesia. While injecting foam loaded with a sclerosing agent into a troublesome vein, the phlebotomist performing the procedure is able to watch the needle on a monitor. This gives him or her a view of the damaged area and ensures that all of the varicose veins receive treatment.

Doctors prefer to use ultrasound guided sclerofoam on patients with small to medium-sized varicose veins, and it produces excellent results in over eighty percent of those treated. The side effects are minimal, but include some swelling and bruising which should disappear over a few days time. No hospitalization is need for those undergoing ultrasound guided sclerofoam, but the procedure should be done by a medical physician.

Though treatment with ultrasound guided sclerofoam may cost half of the amount as a surgical procedure, it could be slightly more expensive than laser treatments. It doesn’t, however, require time off from work which does save money, and it isn’t painful. The results of ultrasound guided sclerofoam should last for years, but, if necessary, additional treatments can be performed.

Those considering a procedure to relieve the symptoms of varicose veins should search for a local provider. A simple phone call will help to determine if you are a suitable candidate.
