THE MEDICAL FOAM MAKES THE VARICOSE VEINS ATROPHY
The foam injection treatment involves injecting medical foam into the damaged veins using accurate ultrasound guidance. The treatment causes the damaged veins to scar and atrophy, which allows the blood to flow in the right direction in the healthy veins in the leg.
Foam injections are a safe treatment method and complications are extremely rare.
The method is not suitable for patients who are suffering from
- serious illness
- coagulation disorders
- impaired movement
- severe arteriosclerosis
- fresh venous thrombosis
Pregnancy is an impediment to the treatment.
Following treatment with foam injections, the patient should use support stockings that go up to the thigh for two weeks.
