Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy

Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy

Foam sclerotherapy is a fairly new method for injecting varicose veins, in which foam is used rather than fluid. This foam has a stronger effect than fluid. Foam sclerotherapy can therefore be used to inject larger varicose veins. It can be used instead of surgical or endovenous treatment in large vessels, and instead of fluid sclerotherapy in smaller vessels. In large veins that lie deeper, the foam is injected under ultrasound (duplex) guidance.
