Duplex ultrasound for early and remote assessment of results

Duplex ultrasound for early and remote assessment of results

Auteurs/Authors : Chauzat B.

Résumé :

Duplex ultrasound (DUS) has taken a prominent place in phlebology.
In addition to the clinical assessment of superficial venous disorders in the lower limbs, DUS exploration makes it possible to establish an initial state, and to carry out a mapping to define a therapeutic strategy.
DUS is also an essential and almost a permanent aid during endovenous thermal or sclerosing foam treatments.
Finally, it allows precise monitoring of early results, in terms of effectiveness but also complications, as well as the evolution of the treated venous network and possible recurrences.
The polymorphic nature of ultrasound images, particularly at early control, must be known to all, to offer the patient appropriate follow-up and therapeutic support if necessary.
Keywords: Duplex ultrasound, foam sclerotherapy, thermal ablation.
