One of the most common procedures used to treat varicose veins is ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. During this procedure, your varicose vein doctor in Hudson County inserts a tiny needle into the affected veins, and then uses ultrasound to guide the needle into the proper position. When it is in place, the doctor injects a chemical substance that irritates the interior surfaces of the vein, causing them to swell and stick together, effectively closing the vein. As the treated vein collapses, blood flow is redirected to healthier veins in the area, while the now-collapsed vein is absorbed into surrounding tissues and disappears.
Sclerotherapy is a relatively safe procedure, free of complications with most patients, while giving them immediate relief from their symptoms.
Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is particularly useful for the management of diseased veins that are not visible to the naked eye, and thus may otherwise be difficult to treat.
