    Abstract

    A series of 71 subfascial ligations of the perforating veins of the lower leg is discussed, and the technique of the operation outlined. Forty-four per cent of the limbs we treated developed a postoperative slough, and 25 per cent required skin grafting. There was an ulcer recurrence rate of 33.8 per cent in our series, but these ulcers usually promptly healed with compression bandaging. In 13 per cent of the limbs, further operative procedures were required. There was no operative mortality in this series.
