The case for saphenous ablation versus simple proximal ligation

Hussain S. T., Kambal A.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow, UK


PDF  


New modalities of treatment for primary varicose veins are being increasingly used. This is because traditional stripping and sapheno-femoral junction ligation is requires a general anaesthetic and is associated with postoperative pain and bruising. This article aims to address the evidence and long-term follow up of the new surgical techniques and compare them to traditional sapheno-femoral ligation.
