ENDO-VENOUS CHEMICAL ABLATION (EVCA)
Modified Microfoam Sclerotherapy [MMFST]
Modified Microfoam Sclerotherapy (MMFST) is a new technique based on knowledge of the microscopic veins and micro circulatory impediment. In order to prevent the backflow towards the capillary through the superficial venous system the collecting venous system at the tissue level has to be eliminated by a good sclerosant - Polidocanol [POL].
The treatment is initiated by elimination of the superficial venous system from foot towards the leg by injecting Microfoam Polidocanol through the very fine tributaries. The specific property of POL is made use of in eliminating the minute collecting system. The drug has a centrifugal retrograde distribution from bigger to smaller and from smaller to smallest veins unlike any other IV injections, which promptly go from smaller to the bigger and to the heart.
