Evaluation of lidocaine as an analgesic when added to hypertonic saline for sclerotherapy. (1/344)

PURPOSE: The efficacy of sclerosing agents for the treatment of telangiectasias and reticular veins is well established. The injection of these agents is often associated with pain, and it is not uncommon for sclerotherapists to include lidocaine with the sclerosants in an attempt to reduce the pain associated with treatment. However, there are concerns that this may reduce the overall efficacy of the treatment because of dilution of the sclerosant. Patient comfort and overall outcome associated with treatment using HS with lidocaine (LIDO) versus that using HS alone was compared. METHODS: Forty-two patients were prospectively entered into the study and randomized blindly to sclerotherapy with 23.4% HS or 19% LIDO. Study subjects and treating physicians were blinded to the injection solution used. Injection sites were chosen for veins ranging in size from 0.1 to 3 mm. Photographs of the area to be treated were taken, and the patients rated their pain. They were then observed at regular intervals for four months, and clinical data was collected. Thirty-five subjects completed the full follow-up period, and photographs of the injected area were taken again. Three investigators blinded to the treatment assignment then evaluated the photographs and scored the treatment efficacy according to a standardized system. RESULTS: In the HS group, 61.9% (13 of 21) patients rated their pain as none or mild, whereas 90.5% (19 of 21) of patients in the LIDO group had no or mild discomfort. This difference is significant, with a P value of.034. There was no difference in the overall efficacy of treatment between the two groups. The groups had similar rates of vein thrombosis and skin necrosis. CONCLUSION: Although lidocaine is often used with sclerosing agents, there are no previous reports in the literature to evaluate its effectiveness in reducing the pain experienced by the patient. In this study, patients receiving LIDO experienced significantly less discomfort at the time of injection than patients who received HS alone. There were no differences in the effectiveness of treatment or in the incidence of complications between the two groups.  (+info)

Towards measurement of outcome for patients with varicose veins. (2/344)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a valid and reliable outcome measure for patients with varicose veins. DESIGN: Postal questionnaire survey of patients with varicose veins. SETTING: Surgical outpatient departments and training general practices in Grampian region. SUBJECTS: 373 patients, 287 of whom had just been referred to hospital for their varicose veins and 86 who had just consulted a general practitioner for this condition and, for comparison, a random sample of 900 members of the general population. MAIN MEASURES: Content validity, internal consistency, and criterion validity. RESULTS: 281(76%) patients (mean age 45.8; 76% female) and 542(60%) of the general population (mean age 47.9; 54% female) responded. The questionnaire had good internal consistency as measured by item-total correlations. Factor analysis identified four important health factors: pain and dysfunction, cosmetic appearance, extent of varicosity and complications. The validity of the questionnaire was demonstrated by a high correlation with the SF-36 health profile, which is a general measure of patients' health. The perceived health of patients with varicose veins, as measured by the SF-36, was significantly lower than that of the sample of the general population adjusted for age and a lower proportion of women. CONCLUSION: A clinically derived questionnaire can provide a valid and reliable tool to assess the perceived health of patients with varicose veins. IMPLICATIONS: The questionnaire may be used to justify surgical treatment of varicose veins.  (+info)

Do alterations in the rate of gastric emptying after injection sclerotherapy for oesophageal varices play any role in the development of portal hypertensive gastropathy? (3/344)

Bleeding from portal hypertensive gastropathy (PHG) has been estimated to account for up to 30% of all upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage in patients with cirrhosis and portal hypertension. Although portal hypertension seems to be an essential prerequisite, the precise mechanisms responsible for the development of PHG are unknown. The aim of this study was to examine the role of injection sclerotherapy of oesophageal varices in the development of PHG. Gastric emptying was studied using a radionuclide test meal with the emptying characteristics of a slow liquid in 57 patients with cirrhosis and/or portal hypertension (median age 53 yrs), of whom 34 had received injection sclerotherapy for their oesophageal varices and 20 normal healthy volunteers (median age 42 yrs). As vagal damage is associated with more rapid emptying of liquids, despite hold up of solids, this technique might be expected to demonstrate such damage if gastric emptying was accelerated. The results indicated that there was no difference in the rate of gastric emptying between normal healthy volunteers and portal hypertensive patients. However, patients who had received injection sclerotherapy emptied their stomachs faster than those who had not (p < 0.05). Furthermore, the speed of gastric emptying correlated directly with the number of injections (r = 0.41; p = 0.02) and the volume of sclerosant injected (r = 0.39; p = 0.03). These observations suggest that injection sclerotherapy for oesophageal varices results in disturbances of gastric emptying that may contribute to the pathogenesis of portal hypertensive gastropathy.  (+info)

A survey of the current management of varicose veins by members of the Vascular Surgical Society. (4/344)

The assessment and treatment of varicose veins by members of the Vascular Surgical Society of Great Britain and Ireland has been assessed by postal questionnaire. The response rate was 65%, of which 77% were general surgeons with a vascular interest, 21% were vascular surgeons only and 2% were non-vascular. Approximately four new patients with varicose veins are seen per surgeon per week in clinics with a median waiting time to be seen of 12 weeks. A median of three varicose vein operations per surgeon per week are undertaken with 10-15% of surgery being performed for recurrent disease. The commonest indications for surgery are symptomatic (97%) and complicated (98%) varicose veins, although 55% of surgeons also perform surgery for cosmesis. 65% surgeons routinely use hand-held Doppler in the assessment of varicose veins; of the other methods available, Duplex scanning was used as the first line investigation by 83%. Although over 60% of surgeons use sclerotherapy surgery is the preferred option for primary treatment for varicose veins associated with long or short saphenous reflux. 62% surgeons use deep venous thrombosis prophylaxis in patients undergoing varicose veins surgery selectively, and 27% use it routinely.  (+info)

Percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy: long term follow up of the first series of 25 patients. (5/344)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the long term outcome in patients treated with percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (PTSMA) for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM). DESIGN AND SETTING: Observational, single centre study. PATIENTS: 25 patients (13 women, 12 men, mean (SD) age 54.7 (15.0) years) with drug treatment resistant New York Heart Association (NYHA) class 2.8 (0. 6) symptoms attributed to a high left ventricular outflow gradient (LVOTG) and a coronary artery anatomy suitable for intervention. INTERVENTION: PTSMA by injection of 4.1 (2.6) ml of alcohol (96%) into 1.4 (0.6) septal perforator arteries to ablate the hypertrophied interventricular septum. OUTCOME MEASURES: During in-hospital follow up, enzyme rise, the frequency of atrioventricular conduction lesions requiring permanent DDD pacing, and in-hospital mortality were assessed. Long term follow up (30 (4) months, range 24-36 months) included symptoms, echocardiographic measurements of left atrial and left ventricular dimensions and function, and LVOTG. RESULTS: Mean postinterventional creatine kinase rise was 780 (436) U/l. During PTSMA 13 patents developed total heart block, permanent pacing being necessary in five of them. One 86 year old patient died from ventricular fibrillation associated with intensive treatment (beta mimetic and theophylline) for coexistent severe obstructive airway disease. After three months, three patients underwent re-PTSMA because of a dissatisfactory primary result, leading to LVOTG elimination in all of them. During long term follow up, LVOTG showed sustained reduction (3 (6) mm Hg at rest and 12 (19) mm Hg with provocation) associated with stable symptomatic improvement (NYHA class 1.2 (1.0)) and without significant global left ventricular dilatation. CONCLUSIONS: PTSMA is an effective non-surgical technique for reduction of symptoms and LVOTG in HOCM. Prospective, long term observations of larger populations are necessary in order to determine the definitive significance of the procedure.  (+info)

Sclerosing treatment of lymphangiomas with OK-432. (6/344)

Over a period of seven years, 15 patients (aged from birth to 15 years; median 22 months) with lymphangioma were treated with OK-432; they received a mean of three injections each. Ten received OK-432 as first line treatment; five were treated after surgery (three had a residual lymphangioma after incomplete removal and two had a late recurrence). OK-432 proved to be effective for primitive as well as for residual and recurrent lymphangioma. Seven cases were macrocystic; complete regression was obtained in all. Five cases were microcystic: two had more than 50% regression, and three less than 50%. Three cases were mixed, with both large and microscopic cysts: one had more than 50% regression, and two less than 50%. These last two cases underwent surgery after the sclerosing treatment. The results obtained were excellent in 100% of macrocystic cases; a shrinkage in size was obtained in all microcystic cases. OK-432 is therefore proposed as a first line option for treatment of lymphangiomas.  (+info)

Evaluation of portosystemic collaterals by SPECT imaging after endoscopic variceal sclerotherapy: usefulness for predicting recurrence. (7/344)

Bleeding from esophageal varices is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in cirrhotic patients. Identification of patients at high risk for bleeding is particularly important. The aim of this study was to determine whether detection of portosystemic collaterals by SPECT could predict the outcome of endoscopic injection sclerotherapy of esophageal varices and be useful for selecting appropriate therapy. METHODS: Sixty-two patients with liver cirrhosis who were considered at high risk of bleeding were treated with endoscopic injection sclerotherapy. Endoscopy was performed every 3 mo after therapy or until bleeding occurred. Before and within 2 wk after therapy, tomographic images of intra-abdominal blood pool were constructed by SPECT. RESULTS: Before therapy, the following portosystemic collateral routes were observed: coronary veins in 53 (85.5%) of 62 patients, short gastric veins in 8 patients (12.9%), splenorenal shunts in 10 patients (16.1%), and paraumbilical veins in 6 patients (9.7%). Patients positive for imaging of coronary veins were divided into 3 groups on the basis of changes in images after therapy: complete responders (n = 17), whose coronary vein images disappeared completely; partial responders (n = 18), whose images became smaller; and nonresponders (n = 18), whose images did not change significantly before or after therapy. The rates of recurrence after endoscopic injection sclerotherapy until 6 mo in complete responders (4/17, 23.5%) and partial responders (7/18, 38.9%) were significantly less (P < 0.05) than that in nonresponders (11/13, 84.6%). The rate of recurrence of esophageal varices until 6 mo in nonresponders treated with additional submucosal injection sclerotherapy (1/5, 20.0%) was significantly less (P < 0.05) than that in nonresponders without additional submucosal injection sclerotherapy (11/13, 84.6%). CONCLUSION: Abdominal blood-pool SPECT, a noninvasive method, is useful for evaluating the therapeutic effectiveness of endoscopic sclerotherapy, for predicting the recurrence of varices, and for selecting appropriate management after sclerotherapy.  (+info)

A comparative study of the elective treatment of variceal hemorrhage with beta-blockers, transendoscopic sclerotherapy, and surgery: a prospective, controlled, and randomized trial during 10 years. (8/344)

OBJECTIVE: To compare three options for the elective treatment of portal hypertension during a 10-year period. METHODS: Patients included in the trial were 18 to 76 years old, had a history of bleeding portal hypertension, and had undergone no prior treatment. Treatment options were beta-blockers (propranolol), sclerotherapy, and portal blood flow-preserving procedures (selective shunts and the Sugiura-Futagawa operation). RESULTS: A total of 119 patients were included: 40 in the pharmacology group, 46 in the sclerotherapy group,and 33 in the surgical group. The three groups showed no differences in terms of age, Child-Pugh classification, and cause of liver disease. The rebleeding rate was significantly lower in the surgical group than in the other two groups. The rebleeding rate was only 5% in the Child A surgical group, compared with 71% and 68% for the sclerotherapy and pharmacotherapy groups, respectively. Survival was better for the low-risk patients (Child A) in the three groups, but when the three options were compared, no significant difference was found. CONCLUSIONS: Portal blood flow-preserving procedures offer the lowest rebleeding rate in low-risk patients undergoing elective surgery.  (+info)

Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy is a technique which is similar to injection sclerotherapy. During ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy the sclerosant is mixed with air to form a foam mixture.. Under ultrasound control this is then injected into the veins causing a reaction in the wall of the vein which closes the vein. Unlike injection sclerotherapy this technique can be used to treat larger veins.. Ultra guided foam sclerotherapy is a form of varicose vein therapy which is often used for treating varicose veins on patients who are unsuitable or unable to undergo varicose vein treatments such as surgery, laser ...

Sclerotherapy has been around for many years. Its used in multiple situations. Sclerotherapy can be used to treat an inner vein in the leg such as the saphenous vein or deeper varicose veins. If we use Sclerotherapy on internal veins, we have to use ultrasound guidance. The ultrasound imaging technology allows us to visualize abnormal veins in the leg and then we can direct the needle and syringe inside of the vein and deliver the drug.. Sclerotherapy can also be used for surface veins such as spider veins. In this case ultrasound is not required because we can visualize a needle entering the vein right on the skin. As far as insurance coverage for sclerotherapy, it is somewhat problematic. Sclerotherapy, because its been around for so long and because it was primarily used for surface spider veins, it really had a cosmetic connotation. Its only with the adventive imaging technology that we can now visualize internal veins and treat them. So its incumbent upon the physician to generate a ...
Varicose veins that are aesthetically unpleasant or trigger pain can be treated with modern technologies. Restorative measures such as sclerotherapy and phlebectomy are proven safe and effective in eliminating varicose veins, but the recovery time and experience can be very different.. Sclerotherapy. A common treatment for spider veins, sclerotherapy uses a tiny needle to inject veins with a sclerosant solution to irritate the veins lining. This causes the veins to collapse, get reabsorbed, and no longer be visible on the skins surface. The strength and type of sclerosant used depends on the veins location and size. Sclerotherapy is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that anyone with unsightly spider veins can undergo to prevent further complications.. Most people will need more than one sclerotherapy session. The number of sessions will depend on the number and type of veins being treated. Obviously, spider veins at the early stages are the easiest to treat. Sclerotherapy is done right ...
Dr. Raffi Dishakjian was one of the first vein doctors in Southern California to use Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy to treat tortuous varicose veins.
Sclerotherapy is a very common spider vein treatment and can be used to treat smaller varicose veins. It is generally used to treat spider veins visible to the naked eye (visual sclerotherapy), but can also be used to treat veins just under the surface and out of sight (ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy). Sclerotherapy for varicose veins and spider veins involves the injection of a chemical solution directly into the vein which irritates the vein wall, causing it to spasm and close down permanently.

Injection sclerotherapy is used to treat spider veins and sometimes small varicose veins. The vein is injected with a sclerosing agent using a very fine needle. This chemical compound causes the blood vessel to close up and eventually disappear. The procedure is virtually painless, and most patients report feeling only a slight tingling or burning sensation. While sclerotherapy does not provide a complete elimination of the problem veins, the majority of patients experience very good results. Some patients do report poor results, and in rare cases the patients condition has worsened after treatment. If the vein is not located near the surface of the leg, it may be necessary to use Ultrasound Guided Injection Sclerotherapy.. ...

If you are unhappy with the appearance of spider veins or the pain of varicose veins, then perhaps sclerotherapy is right for you.. At Longstreet Clinic, our Vascular and Vein specialists offer sclerotherapy, an effective treatment for spider veins and varicose veins. This solution can erase unsightly spider veins and may provide relief from the pain (cramps, swelling and burning) associated with varicose veins.. Sclerotherapy involves injecting an FDA-approved solution into the affected vein. The solution eventually causes swelling in the lining of the blood vessel, which results in the build-up of scar tissue. Eventually, the scar tissue fades and the varicose or spider veins are no longer visible.. This procedure is not for everyone, however, and eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis. Sclerotherapy is not recommended for pregnant women, and all patients should discuss any possible treatment option with a physician.. Studies have shown that sclerotherapy is more effective than ...

BACKGROUND AND METHOD: Foam sclerotherapy is a potential treatment for varicose veins. A systematic review was undertaken to assess its safety and efficacy. RESULTS: Sixty-nine studies were included. The median rates of serious adverse events, including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, were less than 1 per cent. The median rate of visual disturbance was 1.4 per cent, headache 4.2 per cent, thrombophlebitis 4.7 per cent, matting/skin staining/pigmentation 17.8 per cent and pain at the site of injection 25.6 per cent. The median rate of complete occlusion of treated veins was 87.0 per cent and for recurrence or development of new veins it was 8.1 per cent. Meta-analysis for complete occlusion suggests that foam sclerotherapy is less effective than surgery (relative risk (RR) 0.86 (95 per cent confidence interval (c.i.) 0.67 to 1.10)) but more effective than liquid sclerotherapy (RR 1.39 (95 per cent c.i. 0.91 to 2.11)), although there was substantial heterogeneity between studies. CONCLUSION:

People with varicose veins and vascular defects in the skin of the feet should keep in mind that sclerotherapy only eliminates the symptoms of pathological processes in the body.Therefore, the problem may come back again, if a person is not engaged in their health.. ...
You dont know when it happened, but you have blue webs running across your legs. Spider veins are popping up. These veins might be a nuisance, but you can get rid of them with a relatively simple procedure known as sclerotherapy. This spider vein treatment can help you to stop being self-conscious about your legs once again.. How Does Sclerotherapy Work?. Sclerotherapy is a common procedure that is used to treat spider veins. When you have these vein problems, valves in the veins are not doing their job. They are supposed to close after the blood passes through on the way to the heart. When you have faulty valves, they fail to close. Blood can pool in the vein as a result. In the beginning, you may only have spider veins. Over time, they will become more pronounced. To eliminate the problem, sclerotherapy is effective. A special solution will be injected into your spider vein to cause the vein to collapse and seal. In the end, blood can no longer pass through the treated vein. Your body is ...
Injection sclerotherapy is now the accepted first line treatment for bleeding oesophageal varices, although it is associated with an impressive list of rare complications. The main problem concerns the strategy for uncontrollable or recurrent bleeding. Patients with uncontrolled bleeding may be referred for surgery after considerable blood loss and are then extremely difficult to assess. The effects of blood loss on liver function can lead to an unduly pessimistic assessment of liver status. An effective choice of emergency surgical procedure may require considerable surgical expertise. Oesophageal transection and devascularisation are satisfactory for many patients with oesophageal varices secondary to cirrhosis and should nearly always control bleeding. Difficulties arise in patients who are grossly obese and in those who have undergone extensive surgery in the upper abdomen. Problems may also be encountered in those treated by repeated sclerotherapy, which may have caused severe inflammatory ...

Foam sclerotherapy at a medical clinic around Los Gatos is an effective technique for eliminating varicose veins. These problem veins are very common in men and women as they get older. Varicose Veins. Varicose veins typically develop in the legs. The veins start to bulge because they cannot send blood back to the heart. The valves in these blood vessels no longer function properly. The legs start to feel heavy and uncomfortable.. Foam Sclerotherapy. This minimally invasive technique performed at a medical clinic around Los Gatos involves injecting a foam substance into the veins. This irritating substance causes the veins to gradually collapse. Blood now must travel to other veins instead since these vessels are blocked.. The body absorbs the material and eliminates it through its natural waste removal process. The veins are not needed by the body because there are so many others in the legs, and these diseased blood vessels did not function adequately anymore.. Traditional ...
article{4aec8367-a9ff-4d67-9f88-63e6c2f99e74, abstract = {Objective The aim of this work was to study the histologic and manometric changes in the distal esophagus beyond 2 years following endoscopic sclerotherapy (EST) and/or surgical intervention, and to try to understand the etiological factors associated with these changes. Patients and interventions Forty patients, with an average age of 61.5 years, were studied for 2-12 years following sclerotherapy and/or surgical intervention. The causes of liver disease were alcoholic cirrhosis (78.6%), primary biliary cirrhosis (14.3%), and chronic aggressive hepatitis (7.1%). A predominant number of cases (65%) had a mesocaval interposition shunt due to the failure of EST, 32.5% EST alone, and 2.5% esophageal devascularization. All patients had esophageal manometry following mucosal biopsies taken in duplicate endoscopically from three levels of the distal esophagus. Results In the EST and shunt groups, 88.5% had manometric abnormalities, esophagitis, ...

Surface sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure…. ...
It is not clear which therapy should be used in patients with bleeding esophageal varices that are not controlled by emergency sclerotherapy. This is a high-risk group with reported mortality rates of between 70% and 90%. We report our 7-yr experience with staple transection of the esophagus in this patient group. Of 168 patients (280 bleeding episodes) treated with sclerotherapy, 22 had emergency staple transection for failure to control bleeding. Bleeding was controlled in 20 patients (90%), and 10 patients (45%) survived to leave the hospital, including 4 of 10 patients (40%) with Pugh grade C liver disease. We suggest that emergency staple transection is an effective salvage treatment for this high-risk group. (Hepatology 1992;15:403-406). ...
Fortunately, spider veins seldom result in significant health issues. However, for some patients, they create cosmetic concerns that can erode self-confidence. Spider veins resemble varicose vessels in many ways. However, they usually develop closer to the surface of the skin and are much smaller. Sclerotherapy is the option vein clinics first consider once conservative measures such as compression stockings, shedding excess pounds, or avoiding extended time standing or sitting have failed to satisfy a patients needs. It then becomes necessary to eliminate these troublesome vessels. Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for this, the Office of Womens Health reports.. Doctors perform sclerotherapy on an outpatient basis. This procedure has been in use since the 1930s, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Using a very fine needle, a physician injects a special substance called a sclerosant into each vein targeted for elimination. Sometimes a doctor combines the procedure with ultrasound to ...
The results were from a CLASS (Comparison of Laser, Surgery and Foam Sclerotherapy) study. Of all the treatments they explored, two non-surgical treatments are ones we provide in our Houston area vein clinics. These include Foam Sclerotherapy and Laser Ablation.. And the study didnt just look at immediate impact. Instead, researchers compared the treatments long-term results with surgery. With sclerotherapy, we inject your abnormal vein with a substance that gradually causes its collapse. With ablation, we use bursts of laser light to collapse your vein. Both are minimally invasive procedures.. For this study, researchers followed 800 varicose vein patients treated between 2008 and 2012. At the end of five years, patients answered questions about their quality of life, the financial cost and their willingness to recommend the treatment to others.. Almost all of participants were happy with their results. Nearly all participants reported feeling better after treatment. And most participants ...
Most patients require several treatments of sclerotherapy to obtain optimal results. Treatments are typically scheduled in 4 week intervals. There is no recovery period and bed rest is not required. Exposure to the sun should be avoided for 2 weeks after treatment to prevent skin discoloration.. Travelling by air must be avoided for at least 2 weeks following sclerotherapy due to an increased risk of blood clot formation.. Following a sclerotherapy treatment patients are required to wear compression stockings for 3 consecutive days and nights. Bathing, showering, swimming, heavy lifting and extreme physical exercise or activities should be avoided during this 3 day period.. ...
Our sclerotherapist uses an extremely fine needle to inject a sclerosant medication directly into the target vein and its branches. The sclerosant causes the treated veins to collapse, and has the visual effect of causing the veins to disappear. We also assess for and treat the underlying cause of these superficial varicosities before we recommend sclerotherapy. The sclerotherapy treatment itself is much more effective and the results much longer lasting when a healthy circulatory pattern has been restored by the correction of underlying reflux.. If the cause of the small superficial varicosities or spider veins has not been addressed, these varicosities can and do reappear. Sclerotherapy services have been offered by a variety of medical subspecialists. While this treatment is very effective, many patients note that the veins reappear some months later in the region close to where treatment occurred. Often this is the case because the underlying source of venous reflux has not been treated. ...
During your Sclerotherapy procedure, a physician will inject a Sclerosant solution through the skin and into the vein using a very thin needle. There may be some mild discomfort during the injection.. Depending on the health of the recipient, multiple veins may be treated at once. The number of injections needed will vary depending on the number and the size of the veins being treated. The procedure lasts approximately 30-45 minutes.. Sclerotherapy does not typically require downtime, but your physician may advise you refrain from strenuous activity for up to 2 weeks following the procedure.. Results may be seen as early as 4-6 weeks after treatment but may take longer for the scar tissue to fade. In order to achieve the desired results, patients will typically need more than one session of Sclerotherapy.. Once treated, the vein will be gone forever. However, new spider veins may develop over time which will require additional treatment.. ...

We offer effective spider vein treatments using different methods which include injection of a sclerosing agent (Sclerotherapy) and/or laser for smaller red veins. Sclerotherapy is one of the most time-honored procedures and effective procedures. It works by injecting a sclerosing, or hardening solution into the spider or varicose veins. This solution creates shrinkage in the target veins, causing them to fade and disappear over the next several weeks. Sclerotherapy and spider vein treatment sessions are short, with patients able to resume their daily activities immediately following treatment. For treatment of veins with laser, the wavelength of light is targeted to the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the small vein and destroys it without damaging the nearby skin tissue. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.. ...
Sclerotherapy is a nonsurgical way to treat certain types of vascular malformations, which are abnormal clusters of blood vessels that occur during fetal development.. Sclerotherapy is used to reduce the size of venous and lymphatic malformations or to eliminate pain that is associated with them. Depending on the depth, location and extent of these malformations, sclerotherapy is sometimes used with other therapies, including surgical removal of the malformation.. When your childs procedure is scheduled, you will be given specific information from the interventional nurse for arrival time and eating instructions. Your child may be seen in the HVMC clinic and/or the interventional clinic prior to scheduling the procedure. The radiologist will discuss the treatment plan with you at the clinic visit and you will meet the nurse practitioner, nurse and interventional radiology technologist that will assist during your childs procedure.. Your child will receive general anesthesia and will not ...
At Precision Dermatology, we provide a procedure called Sclerotherapy to treat these problems. Sclerotherapy has been used for many years as a treatment for reducing the visibility of varicose and spider veins. It is non-invasive and highly effective.. Sclerotherapy is the injection of a sclerosing agent into the vein(s). A very small needle is used to inject the medication, called Asclera, into the vein. This product damages the interior lining of the vein wall, causing it to swell and seal shut. The collapsed veins will then be dissolved and reabsorbed by the body.. Patients will usually have some bruising for about a week after treatment and may have some minor aching in the treated leg for 24-48 hours after treatment. All treatment is done in the office and causes minimal discomfort for the patient. Because treatments are minimally invasive, patients are able to drive, return to work and resume most of their normal activities the same day or the day after treatment. The injections will be ...
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to diminish spider veins and small superficial veins to relieve uncomfortable symptoms and appearance. Sclerotherapy utilizes a specialized medical solution delivered directly to the targeted vein. The solution is injected into the veins using a fine needle. Once delivered, the medical solution irritates the inner lining of the vein. This eventually causes the vein to collapse. The pooled blood that was once in the diseased vein then redirects into surrounding healthy and normal functioning veins. Overtime, the collapsed veins turn into scar tissue, fade from view, and are naturally removed from the body. Sclerotherapy is most popularly used to treat small visible veins in areas of the legs, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of small veins in other various parts of the body.. ...

The use of laser for the treatment of spider veins has become more popular than sclerotherapy, particularly for those that own a laser that has that capability. The laser is easier to hit the spider vein as it is a point and shoot method rather than actually cannulating the vessel. Adjusting the settings on the laser is key as the power and depth of penetration of the laser light will determine both effectiveness and the avoidance of skin burns. The laser settings are a bit of an art form as the size and exact location of the spider veins in the skin or subcutaneous levels differs in every patient and level of the leg. I find that the laser is more more expensive and painful but not necessarily more effective over sclerotherapy.. My historic approach to spider veins of the legs is that if you can stick it successfully with a needle, sclerotherapy is better than the laser. It is less expensive, less painful, and more consistently effective. To capture the benefits of both spider vein ...

Aims: The effectiveness of ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) on health-related quality of life (HRQL) in varicose vein treatment is unknown. We evaluated this using the Aberdeen Varicose Vein Questionnaire (AVVQ). Methods: 146 patients with venous disease of clinical severity class 1-6 completed the AVVQ prior to and 6-weeks after UGFS. Paired t-test analysis was performed. Results: Following UGFS there was a significant improvement in HRQL, assessed by AVVQ scoring: mean 20.1 ± SD 11.5 versus 15.3 ± SD 12.1 (p, 0.02). Improvements in pain in the right leg (0.58 vs. 0.31, p, 0.02) and left leg (0.64 vs. 0.4, p=0.007) and ability to perform daily activities (0.7 vs. 0.4, p,0.0001) were evident postoperatively. There was a significant reduction in pruritis bilaterally: right leg (1.3 vs. 0.5, p, 0.0001); left leg (1.0 vs. 0.6, p,0.008). Treatment led to a reduced concern over cosmetic appearance (2.88 vs. 1.91, p=0.0002) and choice of clothing (2.13 vs. 1.91, p=0.02). A significant ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Comparative effects of 5% ethanolamine oleate versus 5% ethanolamine oleate plus 1% polidocanol for sclerosing esophageal varices. AU - Kitano, S.. AU - Wada, H.. AU - Tanoue, K.. AU - Hashizume, Makoto. AU - Koyanagi, N.. AU - Sugimachi, K.. PY - 1992/12/1. Y1 - 1992/12/1. N2 - Sixty-six patients with portal hypertension and esophageal varices due to liver cirrhosis were randomized to receive either 5% ethanolamine oleate (EO) or 5% EO plus 1% polidocanol (EOP) as a sclerosant for endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS). The two groups were well matched with regard to age, sex and the severity of liver disease. In no patient in the two groups was there any major complication, such as esophageal perforation or esophageal bleeding. Eradication of esophageal varices was attained with an average of 4.7 and 4.3 sessions of endoscopic injection sclerotherapy in the ethanolamine oleate and polidocanol groups, respectively. Data on one patient in the ethanolamine oleate group had to be ...
Sclerotherapy is a less painful treatment, including numerous variations such as normal sclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Vein specialists usually recommend this technique for tiny varicose veins. This technique is simple and requires inserting a solution into the damaged vein via an injection. The solution will scar the veins, diverting blood flow to normal veins. Similar to EVLA, the vein will dissolve with the help of tissues surrounding it.. Firstly, the doctors will recommend simple sclerotherapy. In this treatment, you see instant results. Due to the solutions sticky nature, the vein will immediately close while it enters inside your vein. But with heavy doses of the solution, some patients might experience side effects, such as irritation, for a few days (Source). The circulation process returns to normal after the recovery period.. (Source). On the other hand, if the bulgy veins are hardest to find, the vein specialist will perform ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. With ...

Endopyelotomy and laparoscopic pyeloplasty are established procedures for ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO) and historically a high failure rate has been observed in poorly functioning units with UPJ obstruction. The aim of this study is to compare the results of laparoscopic pyeloplasty with endopyelotomy in poorly functioning renal units, i.e., GFR under 25 ml/min. Materials and Methods: Retrospective analysis of all the patients who underwent either laparoscopic pyeloplasty or endopyelotomy for ureteropelvic junction obstruction in poorly functioning units between January 1998 and June 2005 was done. Follow-up renal scans, done at three, six, 12 months and yearly thereafter, were studied. Success was defined as symptomatic relief and/or improvement in function (10% over baseline) in renal scan. Results: There were 23 patients in the endopyelotomy group and 15 patients in the laparoscopic pyeloplasty group with mean age of 25.3 years (9-53) and 26 years (10-44), respectively. Mean ...

By Dr. Cohen. Spider veins, technically called telangiectasias, are small spidery, branching red or blue veins and can be located just under the skin surface anywhere on the leg. Spider veins themselves almost never cause any medical problem but theyre not pretty and many people seek cosmetic treatment to improve their appearance (Not typically covered by insurance).. The first step to any decision should be an evaluation by a vein specialist to be sure your spider veins are not signs of a more serious issue. If you also have bulging veins, leg pain, ankle swelling, or skin discoloration, you may have underlying venous insufficiency (Covered by most insurance). A vein specialist can determine this with an examination.. People are sometimes disappointed in sclerotherapy because their doctors didnt prepare them with realistic expectations. Heres what to expect:. Sclerotherapy consists of a series of injections directly into the spider veins (or the feeder reticular veins) using a very fine ...
by lisah , Jul 6, 2016 , Spider Veins , 0 comments. What is Sclerotherapy? Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure specially designed to improve the appearance of spider veins. The therapy involves injecting a solution into the vein that causes it to scar and collapse. This collapsed vein gets reabsorbed into local tissue and finally fades. Sclerotherapy is usually recommended by experts in treating spider veins as it is the most minimally invasive treatment. It also helps in treating symptoms such as swelling, aching and night cramps.

The size of the veins treated and how many veins were removed determine how long you should continue to wear compression stockings. Wearing them will help prevent the veins that were collapsed during sclerotherapy or ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy to refill with blood. This means that spider veins or small varicose veins that were removed immediately during the procedure will not reappear. It also helps patients see gradual improvement in other veins that were treated. For the first few days after the procedure, it is also very important to get up and walk around each hour to ensure proper blood flow and help with sclerotherapy results..

According to the definition of the clinical, etiological, anatomical, and pathological classification (CEAP), the reticular veins are included in the C1 class and are mainly associated with aesthetic complaints. Several invasive techniques are commonly used for treatment, including mini phlebectomy, laser ablation, and radiofrequency ablation. However, a wide range of sclerosing agents may serve as minimally invasive alternatives, promoting chemical sclerosis of the vein wall. Reticular veins have a diameter no greater than 3 mm and are straight, bluish, and located in the subcutaneous tissue of the lower limbs [1]. They have the same complex etiology of all types of primary venous insufficiency such as hormonal issues, family history, and standing position [2, 3]. However, despite its common occurrence, the condition remains poorly understood [4]. Sclerotherapy is the preferred treatment for some patients because of its simplicity and reproducibility [5, 6], and consists of an intraluminal ...
OBJECTIVES: To review simultaneous intra-operative sclerotherapy (IOS) with immediate surgical resection for the treatment of cervicofacial venous malformations (VMs) at a single institution. While pre-operative sclerotherapy (POS) has been reported in the literature, simultaneous intra-operative sclerotherapy and surgery in the operating room has not. METHODS: The database from the Hemangioma and Vascular Birthmarks Clinic was reviewed. All patients in both groups had biopsy-proven VMs. RESULTS: IOS was used in 11 surgical patients with average age 17 years. Sclerotherapy was performed with sodium tetradecyl sulfate 3%, absolute alcohol or bleomycin. Immediately after IOS, and under the same anesthetic, all patients had either complete resection or debulking of the VMs. Eight patients had complete resolution of their VM and 3 had improvement. Average duration of the combined procedures done under a single anesthetic was 121â ¯min. The POS approach was used for 6 surgical patients with average ...

Results:. Rebleeding tended to be less frequent with ligation than with sclerotherapy: 10 of 38 (26%) compared with 17 of 39 (44%) (difference, 17% [95% CI, 4% to 38%]), but results in the two groups were comparable for blood transfusions, for length of hospital stay, and for risk of death. Comparison of Kaplan-Meier estimates of time to rebleeding and death showed no statistical differences between treatments. Complications were less common in the ligation group: fewer patients in the ligation group had esophageal strictures (0 of 38 compared with 13 of 39 [33%]; P , 0.001) and had complicated esophageal ulcers (1 of 38 [2.6%] compared with 6 of 39 [15%]; P = 0.11). In addition, fewer ligation treatments were required to achieve variceal eradication (4.1 0.3 compared with 6.2 0.4; P , 0.001). ...
Sclerotherapy (SKLER-o-ther-a-pee) is the most common treatment for both spider veins and varicose veins. The doctor uses a needle to inject a liquid chemical into the vein. The chemical causes the vein walls to swell, stick together, and seal shut. This stops the flow of blood, and the vein turns into scar tissue. In a few weeks, the vein should fade.
