The aim of this study was to compare two different approaches to surgical treatment of varicose veins in the lower limbs, too often characterized by recurrence or persistent varicose veins. In our retrospective study, we analyzed how superficial epigastric vein sparing in saphenous-femoral crossectomy might influence the incidence of recurrence. We analyzed 200 patients, and we noticed a trend characterized by a reduction of recurrence or persistent varicose veins in the group treated with selective crossectomy (superficial epigastric vein sparing).
