Following ELA of the short saph vein in my left leg, side veins were treated by USG foam sclerotherapy. U/S, showed the foam had leaked through a vein to the muscle. I was told to take half aspirin daily for 1 month. I have hardening, redness and tenderness in the great saph vein on the same side. My GP, ordered a U/S that showed the foam had leaked into the great saph and muscle. How can this be remedied? Is the specialist at fault? Does this event occur often with these procedures?
I need advice. Complication of sclerotherapy foam leaking into muscle in my calf and great saphenous vein by mistake? (photo)
