New minimally invasive treatment modalities, such as ultrasound‐guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS), are becoming more popular. In a multicentre randomized controlled non‐inferiority trial, the effectiveness and costs of UGFS and surgery for treatment of the incompetent great saphenous vein (GSV) were compared.
