Only small varicose veins could be treated through sclerotherapy, i. Today, due to the new UGFS Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapyvaricose veins may be treated without a surgical intervention, including the large veins, because this method supposes the precision, ultrasound-guided injection of the sclerosing agent directly into the affected vein.
The main difference resides in the fact that the physician uses ultrasound guidance upon the injection, thus obtaining a highly accurate image allowing them to very precisely inject the sclerosing agent into the affected vein, which guarantees a high success rate. The method also allows for the treatment of deep veins, which would have otherwise required surgery.
In general, the common symptoms of the varicose such as calf pain disappear immediately. UGFS leads to the collapse of the vein, which practically no longer is a varicose vein after the treatment.
In one third of the cases, one treatment session may be enough, whereas the other two thirds require treatment sessions. In LaurusMedical Clinic, therapeutic sessions are generally sufficient as an average, to permanently solve the venous problem.
Effectively treated veins will not relapse.
UGFS allows for the final removal of the varicose veins, without surgery. However, a small percentage of the varicose veins may reappear, with a lower severity level.
Strictly depending upon the size of the dilated veins, treatment sessions are required per lower limb, in order to definitively solve the problem. The period between sessions is of approximately one week.
You will then need afine i vene varicoase varicose veins of the lower extremities of trousers or a long skirt to cover the varicose vein dressings; purchase compression stockings, also available at the clinic; drink an important quantity of liquids on the varicose vein treatment day so as to avoid vein collapse; Avoid walking and physical exercise prior to the injection, as this could empty the veins and make the injection more difficult.
We recommend that you stand for a longer period of time before the treatment.
