Hi guys/gals,

Just wondering if anyone has seen much/any use of Polidocanol for a sclerosing agent (typically this med is used for varicose vein tx), we only carry Ethanolamine (ie for esophageal varicies tx), any idea why this might be something that Docs are looking to use now (not sure what advantages it may have, one of our MD's mentioned that his son who is in a residency at a major Med center sees it used there, but no one has concrete stuff on advantages over others.

Anyways, I know the question is a bit of an obscure one, but any help/replies would be great!
