What is Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy and Foam Sclerotherapy?
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (Ultrasound Sclerotherapy or Ultrasound Sclero) is a procedure used to treat underlying incompetent veins and varicose veins that feed surface varicose veins, reticular veins and spider veins (telangiectasias).
The ultrasound is utilized to visualize the underlying vein) so the physician can deliver and monitor the injection.
Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is an alternative to vein stripping and endovenous techniques such as endovenous radiofrequency occlusion (the VNUS Closure Procedure or Venefit procedure). Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is also used to complement these other procedures.
