What Would You Do?

Dr. Windsor Ting, MD - AVF Newsletter Assistant Editor

Share your techniques - how would you treat this?

Medicine is described as being both science and art. Injecting spider veins is an excellent example of this. There are a thousand variations in the scleratherapy of spider veins.  While many may share similar outcomes but I suspect some have better outcomes than others. Tell us how you inject spider veins. We will publish selected responses in a future issue of Blue News Now.
