ABSTRACT
1. The injection therapy of varicose veins is not dead. The place of sclerotherapy is considered to be limited by many physicians and unlimited by others. In my opinion, it is an adjunct method for the control of varicose veins. 3. Both the full and empty vein technics are adaptable to successful vein obliteration. 3. Using the full vein technique, the inclusion of an ‘airblock’ is of benefit. 4. The postinjection management is extremely important. The treated veins have to be compressed continuously for 3 or more weeks. This is the crux of the problem. A neglect of the postinjection precautions spells failure and complications. 5. Postinjection intravenous coagula should be removed, and postinjection phlebitis treated by a short course with Butazolidin. 6. Treatment should not be protracted but concluded within 1 to 2 weeks. 7. Vein obliteration has to be achieved by intima concretion and not by thrombus organization.
