Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Successful varicose vein surgery depends on accurate preoperative assessment and individualized treatment for various combinations of venous insufficiency. Noninvasive duplex scanning is currently the gold standard in varicose vein evaluation. Flush ligation and division of the great saphenous vein and its tributaries, inverted downward stripping to below the knee combined with stab avulsion of varicosities, have yielded excellent results for patients with great saphenous vein reflux. Additionally, identifying and correcting incompetent calf perforating veins is necessary to achieve a satisfactory outcome. Neovascularization at the saphenofemoral junction and varicose vein recurrence and their treatment remain unsolved and require further investigation.
