WHAT IS SCLEROTHERAPY?

This involves introducing a chemical agent  into the diseased veins which   interacts with the endothelium (the inside wall of the vein which  comes into contact with the solution ), in order to seal, narrow and dry the dilated venous vessels.


ARE ALL SCLEROSING AGENTS THE SAME?

No.
Almost all vascular surgeons and phlebologists use sclerosing products. However,  there are different  “MEDICINAL PREPARATIONS”  which result in a variation in  effectiveness.

The commonly  used   foam is produced by shaking a polidocanol solution mixed with air. This foam is made up of large , irregular bubbles which  becomes unstable  seconds after forming. Moreover , the use of  air  as a vehicle for the sclerosing agent limits the volume of foam which  can be administered per session.
