“…There are many works providing good results about the use of POL foam sclerotherapy (Alos et al, 2006;Cabrera et al, 2000;Cavezzi and Frullini, 1999;Frullini, 2000;Gachet, 2001;Garcia-Mingo, 1999;Hsu and Weiss, 2003;Ouvry et al, 2008;Rabe et al, 2008;Redondo and Cabrera, 2005;Santos, 2008;Tessari, 2000). The ability to be agitated and foamed increases the potency of detergents from 2 to 4 times by mechanically displacing blood and thus maximizing surface area and time in contact with endothelium.…”

“…Besides being composed of different specific ingredients, foams can differ in their internal cohesion, which is related to the size of the air bubbles. Macrofoam contains bubbles larger than 500 µm, minifoam contains bubbles between (250 -500) µm, and microfoam is composed of bubbles smaller than 250 µm (Frullini, 2011;Hsu and Weiss, 2003).…”

“…Foi publicado, na revista Archives of Dermatology, um editorial intitulado "Foam sclerotherapy: a new era", no qual os autores Robert A. Weiss e The-Shao Hsu opinam que a microespuma significa uma revolução no tratamento de enfermidades venosas 3 .…”

“…These properties are determined by sclerosant concentration, temperature, pH and quantity of sclerosant and gas used. Debate continues over the ideal parameters for producing the most effective foam 8 . It appears that sclerotherapy has the same results as surgery in the first few years following treatment, but it is inferior to surgery in the long term 9 .…”

“…The stress that foam places on the human respiratory system is still unclear, although complication rates are exceedingly low. The VEDICO trial looked at lung scintigraphy in select patients who received foam, but found no perfusion defect even after injections of up to 10 ml of foam 8 . Some propose a limit of 3 ml of foam per session 6 , while others suggest less than 10 ml and others routinely use up to 40 ml without serious sequelae.…”
