Introduction: Varicose vein and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is one of the most prevalent health problems in Europe and the United States; in some studies, it may reach 60% of population. Patients and Methods: This prospective study involving on 51 patients (C6) is to assess the efficacy and tolerance of sclerotherapy foam in the treatment of great saphenous vein incompetence and ulcer healing in CVI patients at 6 and 12 months and to report our experience regarding the diagnosis and treatment of CVI by catheter directed sclerotherapy (CDS). Results and Conclusion: In our experience, CDS safely can contribute to good ulcer healing rate up to 73% at 6 months for a reasonable cost of money and time which might be considered an attractive strategy for providing efficient vascular service in clinical practice.
