"Evidence from randomized controlled trials suggests that the choice of sclerosant, dose, formulation (foam versus liquid), local pressure dressing, degree and length of compression have no significant effect on the efficacy of sclerotherapy for varicose veins.

Surgery versus sclerotherapy is the subject of a further Cochrane Review".
