In the morning sessions, Dr Paraskevas covered an introduction to sclerotherapy, setting up a phlebology practice, patient assessment and CEAP classification, and anatomy and physiology. By late morning it was sclerosant agents and mechanism of action, sclerotherapy techniques, cosmetic sclerotherapy, and complications of sclerotherapy.
