Écho-doppler per procédure: sclérothérapie à la mousse.
Use of duplex ultrasound during the procedure: foam sclerotherapy
Auteurs/Authors : Hamel-Desnos C.
Duplex ultrasound in relation to foam sclerotherapy treatment (Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy) is essential in the management of varicose veins, but probably not used enough for small-calibre veins, such as the reticular veins.
During the pre-treatment investigation of the venous disease to formulate the treatment plan and injection sites, Duplex ultrasound is used in all the modes (B, pulsed, colour).
During the procedure, once the injection site has been located, only the B mode is used.
The same applies to immediately post-procedure.
In this chapter we describe the various indications for UGFS, the plans and techniques to be used. We shall focus mainly on the per-procedural phase, based on the direct needle puncture-injection technique with fractionated injections, and on the use of the ultrasound tool during this phase.
