Scleotherapy or Embolisation on AVMs?
Hi. I have an AVM behind my knee and on my hip and have received both methods. There are side affects to boths, I had good results with embolisition numerous times, and good results with sclerotherapy once. The second time I had sclerotherapy was a disaster - I ended up with tissue damage - unfortunately this is one of the side affects. I am still suffering the damage it did and its been five years - but the whole thing was a comedy of errors, it took 3 months to figure out I had an infection, and another 3 or 4 months to clean it up, so in other words, someone on my end sort of messed up. You need to discuss it with your doctor.
