Over 20 year ago Professor George Fegan introduced a technique developed in Dublin which he termed “compression Sclerotherapy” for the treatment of varicose veins. Professor Fegan (1967) makes the point that only toy rigid adherence to the basic principles involved and with proper attention to the technical detail, can results be obtained which' compare favorably with those of surgery. The detailed anatomical and microscopic studies carried out toy Professor Fegan and his team on the normal structure and micro structures of the veins have emphasized the function of the valves, the structure of the wall and the importance of the nerve supply to the veins. The applied physiology of the veins of the lower limb was correlated with this anatomical study, and the clinical pathology of venous insufficiency then related to normal venous findings.
