One hundred and twenty nine patients with varicose or telangiectatic veins were enrolled for treatment with either polidocanol (POL) or sodium tetradecyl solution.

The leg veins of each patient, which lacked incompetence from the saphenofemoral junction (SFJ), were divided into three categories according to size (<1 mm, 1-3 mm, and 3-6 mm).
