What is Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy treatment?

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a technique for closing troublesome incompetent refluxing veins and varicosities.

With this treatment, a chemical irritant called a sclerosant is injected into the vein to be treated, rather than heating it closed. It causes the inner lining of the targeted vein to become irritated, closing the vein.

This is needed in situations where the veins are too close to the skin to be heat sealed (risk of burn), too tortuous (many turns and bends), or too numerous for a single laser treatment to be successful.
