  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The objective of this report was to conduct a systematic review of the published research on the use of sclerotherapy to manage varicose veins of the legs. The intent of this paper was to answer the following questions: Is sclerotherapy effective for varicose veins of the legs and if so, is one approach more effective and for which group of patients (symptomatic, asymptomatic)? Are there standards to determine when the treatment for varicose veins is considered medically necessary and when it is considered to be cosmetic? Are there other approaches or variations of sclerotherapy emerging as treatment options for varicose veins of the legs? Information Paper IP-19. ISBN 1-896956-98-X (On-Line)
