Theoretical-practical masterclass in Sclerotherapy

Theoretical-practical masterclass in Sclerotherapy

Over the decades, sclerosing therapy for varicose veins has achieved an improvement in its safety and enhancement of its effectiveness since it was combined with the use of echo- Color Doppler. Through the union of echo-Color-Doppler imaging and the sclerosing drug via foam, the range of possible therapeutic indications for sclerotherapy has expanded. This allowed us to obtain better results for the care of our phlebological patients.

A good therapy, limiting the risks to a minimum, allows the patient to adhere to the therapy therefore to achieve a better result in the treatment of the pathology. The course aims to provide adequate and specific theoretical-practical preparation to undertake the aesthetic and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy technique in total safety and awareness of the therapeutic force.
