Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy


 

Some symptomatic veins may not be treated with catheter based ablations, but may be producing quite an impact on someone’s symptoms. These veins may still be effectively eliminated via a form of ablation achieved with injection of a sclerosant mixed with small tiny air bubbles to make a foam. The foam is injected into the troubled veins under direct visualization with ultrasound. Therefore it’s called Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS).

UGS is a marker of the comprehensive vein care which SPCVA offers unrivaled by other vein centers in the region. UGS is a crucial element of follow up treatments after a catheter based ablation is done. UGS serves to eliminate any residual source of superficial reflux which can still cause pain or swelling despite a successful catheter based ablation.

UGS is a crucial element to the successful treatment of patients with venous stasis ulceration. Someone with wounds or ulcers due to vein disease will invariably have severely dysfunctional veins near or immediately beneath these wounds. These veins represent the direct cause of these ulcerations, and therefore are a target for UGS done in a comprehensive and meticulous process usually after a cathter based ablation therapy is done.
