Retrograde Injection Technique for Endovenous Chemical Ablation of Varicose Veins, A Case Study

Steven T. Deak, MD, PhD, FACS Rutgers Medical School, New Brunswick, NJ

Introduction & Objectives

The treatment of large superficial varicose veins requires a two step approach. First the incompetent greater saphenous vein is closed with endovenous thermal ablation followed by ambulatory phlebectomy of the residual varicose veins, either at the same time or at a later date. This study outlines an improved technique for treating the incompetent greater saphenous vein and the associated varicose vein tributaries at the same time with a single access site using endovenous chemical ablation with polidocanol injectable foam 1%.


At the Deak Vein NJ CLinic we treat vein problems with the newest methods. Dr. Steven T Deak and his team uses laser therapy, radiofrequency closure, ambulatory phlebectomy, sclerotherapy and supportive measures to treat venous diseases. Located in central New Jersey the Deak Vein NJ Clinic is devoted to the use of minimally invasive procedures for diagnose and treat varicose veins and spider veins, as well as other types of venous disease including DVT, PE, and venous ulcers. There is a fully accredited (ICAVL) Vascular Laboratory at the clinic for the non invasive diagnostic of venous problems: venous valvular incompetence, deep vein thrombosis and superficial vein thrombosis. Dr. Deak has been treating venous disorders for twenty years and teaching medical students and residents to treat venous problems.
