Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy with Foam

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy with foam is one treatment for varicose veins. Often ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy with foam is performed by our board certified vascular surgeon in addition to an endovenous ablation procedure to improve results.

Foam sclerosant somewhat resembles shaving cream, and re-liquifies after a few minutes. When the foam is injected into a vein, it displaces the blood and stays inside the lining of the vessel longer than liquid sclerosant. It is very effective for closing small to medium sized varicose veins.

Bulging, unsightly and discolored veins are treated within seconds of the injection, and typically close permanently with foam sclerotherapy. These veins are absorbed by the body and will disappear over time. A compression bandage or stocking is placed directly after treatment to ensure optimal results. Compression stockings are advised to be worn for at least two weeks following treatment. Success rate of closure is comparable.

EVLT (Endovenous Laser Therapy) 

Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) is a minimally invasive, groundbreaking treatment method for varicose veins, which uses laser energy. Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that develop in the legs and can cause discomfort. During this procedure, the heat produced by the laser closes off varicose veins from blood flow. This forces blood to find healthier veins, causing the varicose veins, and the symptoms associated with them, to disappear. 

We usually perform this cutting-edge procedure to eliminate varicose veins that have developed due to an incompetency in one of the saphenous veins. In these cases, either the greater saphenous vein (which runs along the inside of the thigh and calf) or the lesser saphenous vein (which runs along the back of the calf) is unable to adequately distribute blood from the legs back up toward the heart. This inability leads blood to flow downward, which over time causes a buildup of pressure that prompts varicose veins to branch off of the saphenous vein. The laser energy that our board certified vein surgeon uses in EVLT causes the saphenous vein to contract, restoring normal blood flow.  Success rate of closure is comparable.
