Do you know what Dr. Levine uses when sclerosing? My research shows that Polidocanol may have the least occurence of pain and most likelihood of success on the first attempt where doxycillin and alcohol appear more likely to cause pain and may take numerous procedures. Excuse the spelling and grammar. How is he able to get Polidocanol? They use it in vein clinics but it hasn't been approved for other uses according to my research. I can't tell what the best amt is to inject, it appears that 2-4 ML may be appropriate but I am not sure that there is enough research. Do they add a numbing agent to the mixture when injecting?

What info do you need?
Sclerotherapy for a hydrocele using Doxyciillin (sp)
I do not want to have surgery as Aspiration with Sclerosing agent is very effective. Where can I get the procedure done in US or otherwise using Polidocnol (Asclera)
Chicago, IL I am told that Polidocanol isn't approved for treatments other than vericose veins but doctors prescribe medications for symptoms off label often. Are you aware of the effectiveness or lack thereof for sclerotherapy in hydroceles? Doxycillin and Alcohol seem to cause pain in research studies I have seen , whereas Polidocanol seems more effective with less incidence of pain.
Do you know anywhere in the worlld I can get the procedure done with Polidocanol other than Egypt, Morocco or Japan?
I can't get a dr. on the phone in Canada or Mexico
