Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy like Direct Vision Microsclerotherapy can be easily and effectively performed in an outpatient clinical setting with minimal adverse effects. Ultrasound is used to direct the injection of a special solution into deep superficial veins that cannot be accurately identified by the naked eye. Under ultrasound guidance, the target vein is first punctured and then under sonar assistance, the sclerotherapy solution is injected into the vein. Using a sonogram to monitor the movement of the solution during therapy, will pinpoint the affected region. The sclerosing agent allows the vein to close and gradually disappear. This procedure is usually performed in the clinic with little or no downtime.
It uses sound waves as means of creating images of the vein in the affected area, which is exposed under an ultrasound machine that is visible on the monitor screen. The captured images help Dr. Yazdani to check the exact situation of veins. This is where she can diagnose any blockages, faulty valves, reflux, or other signs of damage within the veins.
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is generally used to accurately guide the injecting process for treating deeper or hidden Varicose veins & Reticular Veins. No anesthesia is used as the needle used in the procedure is very tiny.
Admission to hospital and anesthesia is not required. There is usually no need to take time off work and you are able to continue with your everyday activities.
It is generally suggested to avoid air travel, direct exposure to the sun, lifting heavyweight, and heavy workouts to eliminate the risk of complications after treatment.
