Background: Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive treatment option used for ablation of truncal and perforator reflux for chronic venous ulceration. Foam sclerotherapy is characterized by an overall high degree of safety, though special attention should be given to the embolic and thrombotic complications. Good technique, adequate imaging, general precautions, and compliance with post-treatment instructions may help avoid some of the adverse events and an appropriate early intervention may minimize possible sequelae. Methods: In this educational exhibit, we tried to highlight the basic steps of sclerotherapy, it's benefits and complications associated with it. Results: In this educational exhibit, we tried to highlight the basic steps of sclerotherapy, it's benefits and complications associated with it. Conclusion: Sclerotherapy of varicose veins guided by ultrasound is a procedure that offers many advantages: multiple indications, simple to be done, low cost, and minimally invasive.
