Are there any risks associated with ambulatory phlebectomy or foam sclerotherapy for treating varicose veins?

Ambulatory phlebectomies and foam sclerotherapy are two of the most common treatments for varicose vein tributaries. Many studies have been published on these treatments, but few comparative studies have attempted to determine their relative effectiveness. This study will compare the treatment of varicose vein tributaries by means of foam sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy. Patients will be randomly assigned to ambulatory phlebectomy (group A) or foam sclerotherapy (group B) after saphenous vein treatment.

Test findings range from spider veins and telangiectasis to varicose veins and ulcerations in extreme cases. However, as techniques have been developed, it has been discovered that it is not necessary to individually ligate the perforating veins because it has been discovered that disconnecting the varicose groups from the perforating vein stops regurgitating flow and prevents the perforating vein from leaving. Therefore, we propose to carry out a randomized study that compares FS with PA to treat the tributaries of varicose veins simultaneously with intravenous trunk ablation. Once trunk reflux has been addressed, several options are available that can be used to treat ulcers, varicose veins, reticular veins, and associated telangiectases.

A 27 × ½ inch butterfly needle is used to access the varicose or reticular vein, and the foam is injected slowly, observing its proximal path (fig. TIPP facilitates the removal of varicose veins through a combination of transillumination for visualization of the veins, tumescent anesthesia and a rotating suction cannula enclosed in a stationary external dissection sheath that aspirates, morselizes and removes the diseased vein. After enrollment in the study, patients will be randomly assigned to receive either of the two study interventions (AP or FS) to treat their varicose tributaries after having treated their trunk saphenous veins (fig. Read on to learn the ins and outs of microphlebectomy and when it is an appropriate treatment option for varicose veins.

Reintervention is indicated by the symptomatic recurrence of varicose veins in previously treated areas that both the doctor and the patient consider to require treatment. The dominant justification for the phased approach is based on the fact that axial vein ablation alone is sufficient for the treatment of reflux and superficial varices in a minority of patients and, therefore, follow-up phlebectomy should only be reserved for those patients who are not satisfied or receive insufficient treatment. However, in offices where trunk reflux is treated with ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy, the treatment of associated varicose veins can be performed in the same environment. Using skin marks as a guide, a small incision is made over varicosity with a 5 mm, 15-degree Beaver blade (Beaver-Visitec International, Waltham, MA) and a venous hook is used to capture a vein and carry it through the incision (fig.

Then, the leg is prepared with the Techni-Care solution and sterile cloths are placed that expose varicose veins, including the SFJ and the medial part of the thigh. However, for more complex varicose veins and small branched veins, microphlebectomy is an important technique in our repertoire for achieving symptomatic relief and aesthetic resolution.
