Small vein removal (Sclerotherapy)

Small vein removal (Sclerotherapy)

Sclerotherapy and Microsclerotherapy have been used for a number of years. Diseased veins are located with ultrasound scanning and injected with a chemical which is mixed into a foam to displace the blood in the vein. This will eventually cause the wall of the vein to collapse and seal up. This process is less successful if the underlying reflux is not dealt with first (usually by laser) as the varicose vein will simply come back. However, by mixing the STD sclerosant with air, or CO2 into a foam leads to a more effective closure of the vein.
