Sclerotherapy to eliminate varicose veins in the legs
The treatment of sclerotherapy with microfoam to remove varicose veins involves injecting into the diseased vein a chemical substance (polidocanol) in pharmaceutical form of microfoam. This injected substance displaces the blood and allows to selectively treating the internal wall of the varicose vein. The wall of the vein collapses so it can no longer transport blood. Thus, the chemical substance injected transforms the vein in a few months in a scar cord through which blood does not circulate.
