Foam sclerotherapy is not a defined procedure nor is the product uniform or licensed for use but it is now accepted practice in most territories worldwide. Foam sclerotherapy has been used to treat a wide range of venous conditions from the closure of incompetent great saphenous trunk veins to telangiectasia and from venous malformations to hemorrhoids with good outcomes being reported. There is a rapidly expanding body of literature supporting its safety and efficacy as well as a few case histories of serious complications. This article will focus on the current role of foam sclerotherapy in the treatment of varicose veins.
