Microembolism during Foam Sclerotherapy of Varicose Veins

Chronic venous insufficiency is a common disease in adulthood. One recently developed therapy for varicose veins is foam sclerotherapy.

We used foam sclerotherapy in a 51-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman who had symptomatic varicose great saphenous veins and were otherwise healthy. Immediately after the initiation of treatment, transient scotomas developed in the man, and a migraine attack in the woman.
