Sclerotherapy

One injection of a special substance - sclerosant once and for all can relieve you of the venous cobweb and dilated veins on the body.

Varicose veins, which mainly affect women, is not just a very unpleasant cosmetic problem, but a serious disease. And if at the initial stages patients complain of swelling, fatigue and pain in the legs, then over time, inflammatory processes and other complications may develop. Sclerotherapy is one of the most modern methods of treating varicose veins, which is successfully used at the Grace Medical Club.

What is sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a fairly simple but effective way to treat varicose veins. It is also used to close strategically important veins and to eliminate venous nets, "spiders".

Sclerotherapy of veins in the legs is carried out by intravenous administration of drugs that damage the inner layer of the venous wall. In the future, the lumen of the vein is overgrown, the inner walls seem to stick together and the blood flow in them stops. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, without anesthesia and without anesthesia. At the end of the injection site, they are sealed with gauze balls, in compression stockings it is supposed to walk from 30 minutes to an hour.

As a rule, several sessions are carried out with an interval of 5-7 days. It depends on the prevalence of reticular varicose veins, telangiectasias and is limited by the dose of the drug that can be administered in one session. Compression knitwear is used around the clock for 1-2 days, then every day for about 3 weeks. It is important that patients return to work immediately after the procedure; small and short-term restrictions on sports and hard work are recommended. In some cases, the effect occurs almost immediately, the final results are visible in terms of 3-4 weeks to 6-9 months.

Q&A

When is the result visible after the procedure?

You can observe the result of sclerotherapy immediately after the completion of the procedure. For some time, small areas of pigmentation (bruising) may remain on the body in the injection area. But they disappear very quickly.

How important is a compression bandage after the procedure?

After the procedure, the correct elastic compression of the legs is most important. You must wear a compression bandage or bandages around the clock. The specific term can be agreed with our specialists. The purpose of such compression is to completely displace blood from the sclerosed area of the veins and prevent it from entering this area during the entire recovery period.

Do I need to take the course again?

The main advantage of this procedure is an effective aesthetic and therapeutic result that can be observed for a long time. On an individual request, the procedure can be repeated, but the consultation of our specialist is needed.

Indications for sclerotherapy and its types

According to European guidelines, the following indications for sclerotherapy are distinguished:

  • telangiectasias (vascular "asterisks", "spiders");
  • reticular veins (mesh varicose veins);
  • stem veins;
  • perforating (between superficial and deep) veins;
  • residual veins after various procedures;
  • varicose veins associated with venous ulcers;
  • arteriovenous malformations (benign vascular neoplasms).

There are contraindications for sclerotherapy, but there are much fewer of them than for classic vein surgery. Absolute contraindications - atherosclerosis, thrombosis, thrombophlebitis.

There are two types of sclerotherapy of the lower extremities, depending on the form of the injected drug:

  • liquid sclerotherapy;
  • foam-form.

With liquid sclerotherapy, the drug is injected in the form of a solution, and with foam - in the form of foam, when the sclerosant is whipped with the addition of air or carbon dioxide.

Foam sclerotherapy is a rather aggressive method, but it is more effective on vessels with intense blood flow. Liquid sclerosant works more gently and with fewer side effects. During one session, the phlebologist can use various drugs, in different concentrations, in liquid or foamed form. Larger varicose veins, perforators are sclerosed with concentrated solutions in the form of foam and under the control of ultrasound (echosclerotherapy).
