Venous Insufficiency Mapping
We offer Lower Extremity Venous Insufficiency Mapping to document reflux throughout the superficial system. Knowledge of which veins are incompetent can allow for treatment to alleviate symptoms.
Lower Extremity Venous Ultrasounds
As a staff filled with experienced Ultrasound Technicians, we offer Lower Extremity Venous Ultrasounds to rule out DVT. We also provide Venous Insufficiency Mapping to document reflux.
Radio-frequency Ablation Treatment
Radio-frequency Ablation treatments are performed on incompetent veins in the lower limbs. Veins that are considered to be viable for this treatment must be refluxing greater than 500ms. The procedure is performed with a 7cm or 3cm catheter depending on the length of the vein and is wired up the leg throughout the segments that are in need of treatment. This Ablation procedure uses Radio-frequency waves to “burn” the incompetent vein closed. After completion of the procedure, the body will digest the closed vein allowing for blood flow to be redirected to the deep system.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure performed on superficial veins where the vein is chemically ablated using a sclerosing agent called Asclera. The sclerosing agent is injected into perforator veins and spider veins to chemically close the injected vein. This procedure is minimally invasive and only requires small injections at each treated vein.
An Ambulatroy Phlebectomy is performed on varicose veins that lie just beneath the surface in the lower limbs. The vein is surgically removed and broken in various segments to allow for the body to digest the vein. Local anesthesia is used.
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure performed on larger perforator veins or segments of Saphenous veins that cannot be ablated using Radio-frequency ablation. This procedure is performed with a sclerosing agent called Asclera. The vein is accessed then injected with a foam mixture of Asclera to chemically close the vein. This is performed to help redirect blood flow to veins that are more competent to help alleviate symptoms of vein disease.
