INTRODUCTION

LIOTON GEL contains Heparin which belongs to the group of medicines called Anticoagulants. It is used to treat varicose syndromes and their complications, phlebothrombosis (blood clot in veins), thrombophlebitis (inflammation of a vein due to blood clot), superficial periphlebitis (inflammation of the superficial veins), varicose ulcers, post-surgical varicose veins, after saphenectomy (removal of a damaged vein).

LIOTON GEL can also be used in traumas and injuries, localized oedemas, subcutaneous hematoma (collection of blood under the skin) alone or in combination with systemic therapy.

A blood clot or thrombus is a gel-like collection of blood that form in arteries or veins when blood changes from liquid to partially solid form. Your doctor might want you to take certain blood tests prior to the treatment.
