Over the last decade, there has been signifi cant progress in
several aspects of vein treatment. We have seen advances
in the areas of sclerosant preparation, ultrasound and laser
technologies as well as treatment protocols for veins. Many
of these innovations can also be used in combination to
make the procedure safer and more effective for patients.
The following areas will be discussed:
1. An approach to assessing leg veins
2. Direct vision micro-sclerotherapy
3. Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy
4. Endovenous laser/radiofrequency ablation
5. Emerging technologies for treating leg veins
