Adequate treatment of varicose veins requires thorough mapping of perforating veins, communicating veins and "blow out" areas. Combined ligations, stripping and injection of sclerotic substances after operation is the most effective regimen of therapy. The technique of stripping is facilitated by isolating the saphenous vein at the ankle, inserting the stripper from below upward, then making a transverse groin incision over the palpable stripper. The tip of the stripper should be twice the diameter of the vein to be removed. Stripping should be done with the patient in the Trendelenburg position. All patients must be examined at regular intervals after operation and injection of sclerosing material carried out as necessary.
