Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy

 

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a technique used for the treatment of abnormal veins that are not visible on the surface of the skin. The procedure, as the name implies, relies on ultrasound to visualize the target vein and guide the injection of sclerosant foam into the vein.

 

The following sequence of photographs illustrates the procedure. The patient usually feels no more than the needle prick and sometimes some mild burning. The medications that we use for this procedure are polidocanol and sodium tetradecyl sulfate.
