Have relatively large seroma resulting from hip replacement. Is sclerotherapy is viable option?

I have a relatively large seroma resulting from hip replacement surgery 33 months ago. Multiple attempts at aspiration have not been successful and the seroma is now loculated. Prior to serious consideration of surgery, I am trying to determine if sclerotherapy is a viable option. Can you shed any light on this issue?
