In what types of veins, EVCA can be done?

Usually not, it is preferable to do the next leg after three months, after the first leg is set alright. This is mainly due to the following reasons:-

  • To give better care for the leg, especially in advanced stages the disease.

  • Any recanalisation, revascularisation or skipped veins can be detected and corrected during the procedure of the 2nd leg

  • There is also dosage limit for the drug used.

How many sittings required?

Almost 90% can be treated in one sitting. However, in very extensive and very large veins, it may require multiple sittings due to dosage limitations. Recanalisation/revascularisation of veins will also require multiple sittings.

How to care the leg after the procedure?

(Please see the "instructions to be followed by patients after Sclerotherapy")

There are two drugs available. Polidocanol (POL) & Sodium TetradecylSulfate (STS). Polidocanol (POL) is the one preferred in our Centre.
