Sclerotherapy-how do they target the correct veins
I have had 2 treatments already on pelvic congestion veins.....but my right leg vericose veins and those in the vulva area have not improved. Am prob going to need sclerotherapy directly on those veins.
Can anyone tell me how they target the correct veins when they do this? Apparently the valves in my legs are ok, so scanning there won't help. They issue started farther up, as it is the valves in my pelvis that were refluxed.
You can't see all the vericose veins well when I am laying down. Only when I stand up do they all pop out. So......how does the doctor know which veins to inject? And how do they get all the ones (and branches) they need to?
I have googled this to death and can't find anything other than they use ultrasound guidance.......Report this
