Foam Washout Sclerotherapy For Varicose Veins

Foam-Washout Sclerotherapy for varicose veins is a recent modification of foam sclerotherapy was designed in 2008 by Dr. Khalil Fattahi and presented for the first time in March of 2010 at Sclerotherapy Conference in Bologna Italy and subsequently presented at multiple international conferences in US, Europe and Asia. Dr. Fattahi is the first physician to introduce this innovative method which according to his works has a great success rate in treatment of different varicose veins, while reducing the rate of complications associated with common foam sclerotherapy. Dr. Fattahi’s Foam-Washout method focuses on getting the best effect from injected foam by sclerosing targeted varicose vein, while removing all or most of the foam from the treated vein few seconds after the injection. Thus, potentially lowering the risk of complications such as; deep vein thrombosis, neurological and visual disturbance, and migraine headaches. Being the inventor of this technique, naturally Dr. Fattahi is the most experienced physician in the world applying foam washout sclerotherapy for in-office treatment of varicose veins.

Spider veins are small, irregular, purplish or bluish unsightly vessels. Slightly larger and greenish veins, always feed spider veins. Achieving good results depends on treatment of spider and feeder veins.

Varicose veins always result from abnormal flow of blood in opposite the normal direction. In such cases, there is an incompetence of the one way barriers (valves) between the deep and superficial leg vein systems, leading to abnormal flow of blood from the larger deep veins into the superficial smaller veins and creation of bulging varicose veins that often have a zigzag pattern and cause a variety of symptoms.
