Does it make sense to perform a different procedure on each leg to treat reflux in the saphenous veins?
I had a procedure to close saphenous veins on both legs. Two wks ago, the doctor performed endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) on the left. However, today, he decided to do ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) on the right leg. His reasoning was that the saphenous vein on my right leg was too close to the skin. If he does EVLT it will leave a track on my skin. Does it make sense that the doctor did a different procedure on each leg? I am pretty upset by this due to poor success rate for UGFS.
