What is ClariVein?
Mechanochemical Ablation: Clarivein™ One of the newest endovenous ablation technologies, ClariVein™ combines two approaches – mechanical destruction of the vein and a sclerosing agent – to treat bulging varicose veins and their underlying causes. ClariVein uses a special catheter with a rotating tip.
What are the complications of varicose veins?
Complications of varicose veins, although rare, can include:
- Ulcers. Painful ulcers can form on the skin near varicose veins, particularly near the ankles.
- Blood clots. Occasionally, veins deep within the legs become enlarged and might cause leg pain and swelling.
- Bleeding. Occasionally, veins close to the skin burst.
Can sclerotherapy cause problems?
Deep vein thrombosis carries a risk of pulmonary embolism (a very rare complication of sclerotherapy), an emergency situation where the clot travels from your leg to your lungs and blocks a vital artery. Seek immediate medical care if you experience difficulty breathing, chest pain or dizziness, or you cough up blood.
What is a contraindication for sclerotherapy?
Contraindications to sclerotherapy include allergic sensitivity to the sclerosant, pregnancy, infection, deep venous thrombosis (DVT) (especially patients in whom the deep system is occluded and the extremity drained through the superficial system), and severe arterial disease.
Is ClariVein painful?
ClariVein is therefore virtually pain free, cannot cause nerve damage, does not cause allergic reactions and yet has the same excellent results as other treatments.
Is ClariVein a sclerotherapy?
ClariVein is a relatively new technique to treat diseased saphenous veins. It is even less invasive than Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) and it is more effective than ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy (UGS).
What happens if varicose vein is left untreated?
Varicose veins can cause ulcers (open sores), bleeding and skin discoloration if left untreated. Severe varicose veins may be a sign of chronic venous insufficiency. This condition affects your veins’ ability to pump blood to your heart. People who have varicose veins may be more likely to develop blood clots.
Does sclerotherapy have side effects?
Possible risks and side effects You may experience minor cramping, stinging, or burning in the injected vein during sclerotherapy. The procedure can also be painful, especially if the sclerosing agent leaks into surrounding tissues. Common side effects of sclerotherapy include: bruising.
What are the long term side effects of sclerotherapy?
The most frequent side effects were visual disturbances (n=14), and the most severe were muscular vein thrombosis (n=8). The onset of side effects was mostly observed directly after sclerotherapy or in the 6 months after (84% in the first year).
What should I avoid after sclerotherapy?
What Should Patients Avoid After Sclerotherapy?
- Being exposed to direct sunlight.
- Going into a whirlpool.
- Sitting in a sauna.
- Taking hot showers or baths.
- Participating in strenuous exercises or sports, such as weight-lifting, jogging, tennis, and jumping.
- Applying compresses (hot) to the treatment area.
Is sclerotherapy considered surgery?
Sclerotherapy involves a doctor injecting a solution into blood vessels or lymph vessels that causes them to shrink. It can help with varicose veins or spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a nonsurgical procedure.
Is clarithromycin safe during pregnancy?

What are the long-term effects of pre-eclampsia?
Women with a history of pre-eclampsia have a doubled risk of stroke, cardiac ischemia, or venous thrombosis within 10 to 20 years after pregnancy. They have a four-fold higher risk of hypertension and a three-fold higher risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Is it safe to take 14-hydroxyclarithromycin during pregnancy?
US FDA pregnancy category C: Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks. This drug and its active metabolite (14-hydroxyclarithromycin) are excreted into human milk.
