Sclerodine.png Iodine 600 mg/10 mL
(60 mg/mL)
Sodium Iodide 900 mg/10 mL
(90 mg/mL)

INDICATIONS

A sclerosing agent of varicose veins. Since iodine is a strong sclerosing agent, it may be used for sclerosis of truncal veins of lower legs, i.e. internal saphena and collaterals, external saphena, and in some cases, large communicating veins. A venous insufficiency of a truncal vein must be treated prior to treating its related small superficial vessels.  SCLÉRODINE® 6 is a strong sclerosing solution.
DOSAGE
SCLÉRODINE® 6 is administered by injection into the lumen of the varicose vein which is to be sclerosed. Dosage range is variable and depends entirely on the size and length of the vein to be injected; it also depends on the patient's susceptibility to the sclerosing agent. However, as a guideline, the following are the maximum quantities that can be injected during 1 visit according to the solution concentration Sclerodine 6%: 3 mL. Sclerodine is administered in divided doses with a 5 cm space between each injection site.
See prescribing information.

Sodium Tetradecyl Sulfate,
Omega Standard

10 mg/mL 10 vials of 2 mL
30 mg/mL 10 vials of 2 mL
30 mg/mL 5 vials of 5 mL

INDICATIONS
TROMBOJECT®  is primarily used in the treatment of varicose veins of the legs by compression sclerotherapy. Sodium tetradecyl sulfate causes a direct irritation of the intima and formation of a thrombus, while compression promotes the occlusion of the vein by fibrosis.
DOSAGE
The concentration to be used and the dosage range depend on the size and the length of the veins to be treated.
Usual doses:
Small veins:
0.5 to 2 mL of the 10 mg/mL solution
Medium or large veins:
0.5 to 2 mL of 30 mg/mL solution
The smallest possible volume has to be injected, slowly and by the IV route. Do not inject more than 2 mL of either concentration into a single varicosity; respect a 5 cm interval between two injection sites. Do not inject more than 3 mL of the 30 mg/mL solution per visit. The recommended interval between treatments is usuallly 5-7 days.
CONTRAINDICATIONS
Strictly contraindicated, as any sclerosing agent, in case of:
• recent superficial or deep thrombophlebitis (6 months to 2 years).
• varicose veins caused by abdominal or pelvic tumors.
• potential underlying arterial disease.
• renal or cardiac insufficiencies accompanied by venous stasis and dilatation.
• angina pectoris.
• local or systemic infections.
• hyperthyroidism.
• uncontrolled diabetes mellitus.
• asthma.
Do not administer to patients with a history of sodium tetradecyl sulfate hypersensitivity.

PRECAUTIONS
Safety for use in pregnancy has not been established. Use only when clearly needed and when the potential benefits outweigh the potential hazards to the foetus. It is not know whether sodium tetradecyl sulfate is excreted in human milk. Caution should be exercised when used in nursing mothers.″
