Phlebectomy and Foam Sclerotherapy Treatment
Experiences pain, heaviness, cramps, itchiness, swelling, tiredness and restlessness in her left leg. These changes are worse towards the end of the day and following long periods of standing. They have been relieved by rest, elevation of the leg, wearing elasticated stockings and walking. Patient describes the onset of symptoms at around 29 years of age. Prominent varicosities over the anterior thigh which pass into the calf.
Relief of symptoms to improve quality of life, as well as improve cosmetic appearances of bulky varicosities over the thigh to improve confidence.
Ultrasound-guided Ambulatory Phlebectomy & Ultrasound-guided Foam Sclerotherapy
Patient was unable to tolerate the phlebectomy particularly well and for this reason the phlebectomy component was limited to the largest, bulkiest veins over the anterior thigh. Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy has been performed generally. After recovery, great results – all symptoms gone and all treated veins closed. Some staining from sclerotherapy but patient is happy with the results of her treatment as she no longer experiences pain.
