PIN-stripper saphenectomy: preliminary experience

Ferrara G., Benvenuti C., Meloni V., Gioffrè L., Pepe N., Prece V., Fabbri F., Meschini E., Vietri F.

The authors report their initial experiences with the Pin-Stripper for treatment of varices of the lower limbs. Analysing the results, they underline how, with this method, some of the minor complications of saphenous stripping, such as postoperative haematomas and postoperative paresthesia are virtually eliminated without altering the percentage of other complications with respect to the conventional operations. Lastly, the authors detail what, in their and others experience, have proved to be the greatest limitations of the Pin-Stripper, above all in the selection of patients and in the design of the currently available commercial instrument.
