Tromboject Description

Tromboject contains a sclerosing agent, Tetradecyl Sulfate, that is commonly used in the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins that can most commonly occur on your thighs or legs. These visible bulges are caused from your veins failing to properly circulate blood and instead the blood pools in weakened spots.

Veins have valves that work as one-way flaps in order to stop blood from flowing backwards as it travels up your leg. If these valves are weak or impaired, the blood can leak back into the veins where it collects and begins to bulge. There are potential dangers of not treating varicose veins so discuss your options with the doctor and the recommendation may be to undergo treatments with Tromboject that can be done as an office visit.

How Sclerosing Agents Works on Varicose and Spider Veins

Your doctor will use a fine needle to inject Tromboject directly into the affected vein where the sclerosing agent will irritate the lining of your vein. This causes the vein to swell and clots the blood and eventually turns the vein into scar tissue that fades from view. Tromboject also closes up the small feeder veins under your skin that cause the small, squiggly spider veins to form. You will be instructed to wear compression stockings or bandages for about 14 days after treatment. Your doctor will advise how many sessions will be required.

Conditions Treated by Tromboject

Varicose veins can cause your legs to ache after sitting or standing for period of time. You may notice swelling, throbbing, or experience restless leg syndrome. Tromboject injections do not work instantaneously by collapsing the vein as this could be risky and painful. Instead, the sclerosing agent causes your body’s own immune response to act from the injection and cause some inflammation that will turn to scar tissue, accompanied by a thickening and hardening.

Tromboject may also be prescribed for treating small hemorrhoids that are not actually hanging out but may still cause bleeding. Hemorrhoids are veins in the anal area that have become swollen from straining to go to the bathroom when you are constipated or if you have chronic diarrhea, are obese or pregnant, and from sitting for long periods. These swollen veins can cause bleeding, pain, and itching. Tromboject is not a cure for hemorrhoids and your doctor may recommend you for a more involved treatment that will remove the swollen veins as a more permanent solution in the future.

Before You Have Tromboject Administered

Ask your doctor if treatment with Tromboject is considered safe to have administered if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx medications you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. This allows your doctor to determine if Tromboject is the right treatment for you.

Tromboject Recommendations

If you have been instructed on how to administer Tromboject injections at home for varicose veins, follow your doctor’s directions closely on the dosage and frequency of each treatment. Do not share Tromboject with others even if they also have varicose veins. Keep each vial of Tromboject stored as instructed and out of the reach of children and pets.
