Dr Grosser has expertise developed over decades in managing the major range of venous problems from the tiny vessels and dark patches defined as cosmetic venous abnormalities through simple and very complex varicose veins. He also has been a leader in the management of major venous obstruction from DVT occlusion of Femoral and Iliac Veins. In the last decade he has been controlling chronic occlusions responsible for severe stasis change with Angioplasty and Special Venous Stents.
Sclerotherapy (Injection Treatment) for Veins
Sclerotherapy based on scientific principles was developed to manage Varicose Veins by an Irish surgeon FEGAN after World war II. Progressive adaptations and developments make it standard practice for subsidary varicose veins (e.g. Reticular Veins ) and the fine but often very unsightly spider veins. It is also used for Trunk systems but has a high recurrence rate and there are better alternatives for this. New Techniques are being trialled with a glue like Araldite and a little egg beater type device Clarivein to increase the efficacy. At present there are limited reports of how this will compare with RF ablation which has many years of assessment on the board.
Information on Causation, risk of Recurrence, Management and Current Technology to remove Major Blockages Our research can reduce the risk of Thrombosis if it is appropriately applied. A needle prick and catheter and new lytic devices can resolve a large proportion of limb and life threatening thrombi.
