    I've been using Cryospray 59 for years to treat VPs with some degree of success. I was chatting to a patient who runs the local plumbers merchants about the freeze spray plumbers use to block pipes with an ice plug where there is no valve to stop the water flow, and guess what - it seems to be exactly the same ingredient as in Cryospray, ie. Tetrafluoroethane. Cryospray sells for approx £50 for 300ml, whereas you can pick up the pipe freezing spray at B&Q for £15 for 500g - as you can see:

    Any reason why we couldn't use this instead? Albeit the packaging might not look so professional!
