The production of a permanent occlusion in a vein following the injection of a sclerosant has been described. The importance of the relationship of the size of the thrombus and the thickness of the vein wall has been shown, and the bearing that this has on successful cellularization or organization has been demonstrated. The formation of peripheral sinuses and the development of an arteriovenous capillary network in the thrombus has been discussed, together with the significance of the effect of fluctuating intravenous pressure and external compression on the production of a permanent intravenous occlusion.
