Non-Thermal Sclerosant Vein Procedure

The Non-Thermal Sclerosant Vein procedure is a treatment that injects a foam solution into a diseased vein. The foam, known as Varithena, causes the vein to collapse, which then deactivates the foam. This procedure does not require any general anesthesia and is minimally invasive for the patient; the vein doctor will only use a local anesthetic to numb the incision site. A small amount of Varithena is dispensed into the diseased vein, causing the vein to collapse and the foam to deactivate.


The foam typically has no serious side effects and responses are dependent on each individual patient and the severity of their vein condition. The appearance of the treated varicose veins may improve over a period of time. This procedure typically takes less than one hour and the patient is cleared to resume some normal activities the same day.
