Self-care for spider veins:
There was a significant difference in hyperpigmentation and trapped blood between the two groups after the procedure (p = 0.009 and p = 0.02, respectively), there was no statistically significant difference in terms of skin necrosis (p = 0.52). A significant difference in the self-assessed cosmetic outcomes was observed in patients treated with sclerotherapy followed by low energy percutaneous RF thermocoagulation compared with patients whom sclerotherapy performed alone (p = 0.001). This study suggests that radiofrequency thermocoagulation added to the sclerotherapy provides better cosmetic outcomes with less treatment sessions and no additional complication rates (Sage Journal 2021).
Sclerotherapy before surgical treatment provided symptomatic relief and significant improvements and patient satisfaction in patients diagnosed with uncomplicated varicose veins (Al-Azhar Medical Journal, 2021)
In the procedure of sclerotherapy, sclerosant agent is injected in veins. It may be injected direct undiluted, diluted, or in a form of foam. Depending on the type of vein and diameter of vein, different dilutions are used. Though the recurrence with sclerotherapy is high but being a minimal invasive technique with low cost, it is a favorable technique for varicose veins (Springer, 2021)
A hypercoagulable disorders screening indicated a previously silent antiphospholipid syndrome. Although the prevalence of thromboembolic complications is low in both sclerotherapy and endovascular laser ablation, combination of both strategies might increase its incidence, even more in patients with unknown and uncontrolled hypercoagulable disorders (EDIZIONI MINERVA MEDICA, 2021).
