Ultrasound Medical Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound Medical Guided Sclerotherapy

Often used to treat veins that are too small or too twisted to treat with a laser, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy uses ultrasound technology to guide injections of a solution that seal the vein at the source of the problem. This treatment is also commonly used in patients who have had surgical vein stripping and have residual pieces of leaking vein. It is a highly effective alternative when laser treatment is not appropriate.


The injection uses either a liquid or a foam solution that irritates the vein wall, causing it to close up. Blood is diverted to other veins after the problem vein is sealed. The vein that is injected with the solution is eventually absorbed into your body. AVI only uses FDA approved pharmacological scleroscents, and does not use products from compounding pharmacies for all sclerotherapy.


With no anesthesia needed and no downtime after your treatment, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a highly effective vein disease treatment and a valuable tool in fighting vein disease. This procedure is a great aid in preventing recurrence.


Dr. Albert will determine which solution will be most appropriate for each patient. Schedule your consultation today in Denver or Colorado Springs: 888-550-8346.
