Echo Sclerotherapy Vein Treatment in Minneapolis, MN Area
Echosclerotherapy (Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy) is an alternative to surgical vein stripping. With this in-office technique, a liquid or foam injection is inserted into the vein while the doctor visually monitors the vein on an ultrasound screen. This enables treatment of veins that can’t be seen because they are below the surface of the skin and would otherwise require surgical removal. Ultrasound imaging is used to guide a needle into the abnormal vein and deliver medication to destroy the lining of the blood vessel and seal it shut.
