Responsabilidade geral pelo estudo: O tempo de seguimento dos pacientes variou de dias a 1. A escleroterapia com espuma de polidocanol, um dos tratamentos usados na IVC, possui a vantagem de: Um paciente apresentava refluxo segmentar em veia safena magna apenas em perna.
Pode ser eecleroterapia facilmente em regimes ambulatoriais, principalmente a escleroterapia com espuma. Segundo Grover et al. Wiliamsson et al Masuda et al Author contributions Conception and design: MAMS Analysis and interpretation: Ultrasound-guided polidocanol foam sclerotherapy is used to treat patients with venous ulcers.
It is a minimally invasive procedure and is simple to perform, but it has high relapse secleroterapia. To report short to medium term results in patients with venous ulcers treated using ultrasound-guided polidocanol foam sclerotherapy. A sample of 19 patients who had been treated with ultrasound-guided polidocanol foam sclerotherapy between January and December were escldroterapia.
Time taken for ulcers to heal, improvement of clinical symptoms, recanalization of treated veins, and relapse of symptoms and of venous ulcers were analyzed.
Fifteen of the patients analyzed were female Overall mean age was 53 years. Follow-up times ranged from days to 1, days mean of days. The mean duration of active ulcers was 53 months. At postoperative follow-up assessments, total recanalization was observed in There was only one case of ulcer relapse.
Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy has high rates of therapeutic success and achieves high rates of venous ulcer healing. Varicose veins are manifestations of chronic venous insufficiency CVI resulting from long duration venous hypertension.
Brazilian studies have reported a CVI prevalence of Sincea classification of venous diseases based on clinical data Cetiology Eanatomic distribution A and pathophysiology Pknown as the CEAP classification, 6 has been adopted worldwide, although certain modifications were introduced in to improve it.
It is one of the available methods for accurate determination of the esclerlterapia and extent of venous disease.

Sclerotherapy with polidocanol foam, one of the methods used to treat CVI, offers the advantages of being a minimally invasive and easily executed procedure that can be provided in outpatients settings and which enables patients to return home and resume daily activities early.
There are no limitations to using the technique after relapses, since in cases of recanalization the same patients can be treated again with the same method. Treatment success rates have been reported by Gonzalez-Zeh et al. The current technique is based on methods described by Tessari et al. Foam injection can be facilitated using Doppler ultrasound to guide the puncture and to observe the foam progressing through the venous segment as the procedure is performed.
The objective of the present study is to describe the short and medium term outcomes of patients with lower limb CVI with ulcers who were treated with ultrasound-guided polidocanol foam sclerotherapy. This is a descriptive study of patients with CEAP C6 grade CVI who were treated with ultrasound-guided polidocanol foam by the vascular surgery service of a teaching hospital between January and December Data from the initial treatments were acquired from a database maintained by the service.
The patients were reassessed at consultations held from September to Decemberusing structured interviews. The study enrolled all patients within the age range of 18 to 80 years of age who had had venous ulcers and had been treated with ultrasound-guided polidocanol foam sclerotherapy.
Patients were excluded if they were pregnant, under the age of 18 or over the age of 80, had a recent or early history of deep venous thrombosis that had not been recanalized, or had chronic or acute arterial disease.

The database was searched for information such as: Additionally, information was acquired from the Doppler examination conducted prior to treatment, covering reflux in the deep and superficial vein systems.
At the reassessment escleroterapoa, patients underwent another physical examination, supplementary information related to ulcer healing and the procedures conducted was collected, and observations were made on whether or not ulcer relapse had occurred. At the same consultation, a trained professional used Doppler ultrasonography to assess veins that had been treated.
The findings were recorded sscleroterapia maintenance of occlusion, total esckeroterapia, or partial recanalization. This score evaluates the severity of CVI in terms of numerical parameters for pain, varicose veins, venous edema, inflammation, hardening, number of ulcers, duration of ulcer, size of largest ulcer, compression therapy, and skin pigmentation. Categorical variables were analyzed using escleroteraipa statistics, with calculation of means and medians.
Time taken for healing was calculated from the date of the first treatment session. Time before relapse was calculated from the date of ulcer healing. This study was approved by the institutional Research Ethics Committee and the Plataforma Brasil, under ruling number 1. A total of 73 patients with venous ulcers were treated during the period analyzed.
The major difficulty with recruiting patients originally treated was caused by the fact that the majority 52 patients live in towns that are a long way from the treating service, with the result that the sample reassessed was smaller than escleroterapla total cohort of patients treated.
Of these 19 patients who presented for reassessment, 15 escoeroterapia female The overall mean age was Nine patients had associated comorbidities The most prevalent of these was systemic arterial hypertension, in six ecsleroterapia the 19 patients The limb most frequently affected by venous ulcers was the left lower limb, in 10 of the 19 patients The mean duration of ulcer activity was 53 months. Thirteen of the 19 patients The pattern of venous reflux observed prior to treatment in the limbs to be treated was irregularly distributed between deep, superficial, and perforating-communicating venous systems.
Just one patient esclerotsrapia reflux in the deep vein system 5. The greater proportion esclerogerapia cases 12 patients exhibited reflux along the entire extension of the great saphenous vein.
Vehosa patient had segmental reflux esclerotsrapia the great saphenous vein in one leg only. The small saphenous vein was considered incompetent in four limbs, in one esclerotterapia which there was also reflux in the great saphenous vein. This case had total recanalization of the great saphenous vein that had been treated. Before treatment, the VCSS scores ranged from 12 to 28 mean of After venisa, the scores varied from 3 to 22 mean of 7. Clinical deterioration was only observed in one case, with the VCSS score increasing from 17 to Sclerotherapy is an effective and attractive option for treatment of chronic venous insufficiency with reflux observed in both superficial and perforating-communicating systems.
It can be easily performed in outpatients settings, and this is particularly true of foam sclerotherapy.
The follow-up time reported in the present study is greater than in many published esclerotsrapia. With follow-up times ranging from days to 1, days mean of daysit was possible to analyze the long-term effects of sclerosing treatment in a specific group of patients with ulcers, focusing on relapses and recanalization of the veins treated. The patients analyzed in this study have a heterogeneous epidemiological profile. It is a small sample, but it conforms to the pattern reported in previously published work, encompassing patients of varying ages and with multiple comorbidities.
However, that sample cannot be compared to the patients in the present study, since the outcome analyzed was elimination of varicose veins, whereas in the present study it was occlusion of the vein or healing of the ulcer. With relation to patients with severe CVI, Silva et al. Ulcers healed in Recanalization was observed in The present study observed rates of ulcer healing similar to those reported in the literature. According to Grover et al.
In some aspects these results are similar to those reported by Howard et al. One year after treatment, Wiliamsson et al. These values are different to the findings of the current study.
Several different factors influence recanalization rates, such as the diameters of the veins treated, for example. However, this information was not analyzed in this study.
The VCSS score was another criterion analyzed before and after the procedure. Just one of the escleroterwpia in the present study had a higher score after the procedure, indicating deterioration. This was a patient whose ulcer remained active, despite wearing elastic compression after treatment. Despite the small escleroterwpia size, it was possible to analyze certain variables that are important to a real understanding of this type of treatment for CVI. The plan is to continue following these patients, and include additional cases, to enable another analysis in the future.
Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy achieved high treatment success rates and high and sustained rates of venous ulcer healing over the short and medium term.

There was a considerable proportion of recanalization of treated veins; but in the majority of cases this did not cause disease severity to exacerbate.
