[Crossectomy--exhairesis--stripping--laser therapy. How even refractory varicose veins respond to treatment].

Abstract

Chronic venous insufficiency affects more than 50% of the German population. Major factors involved in its development are age, family disposition, female sex and an occupation involving much standing. Together with the clinical presentation, Doppler and duplex ultrasonography in particular enable a reliable pre-operative diagnosis, and deep venous thrombosis can also be definitively excluded. Indications for surgical treatment are in particular varicosis of the greater and lesser saphenous vein and perforating vein insufficiency. Commonly used procedures are crossectomy, restrictive stripping of pathological vein segments, resection of varicose side branches, and the endoscopic discission of perforating veins. Recent developments are deep-freezing and extraction of the vein and endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), requiring only tiny incisions. In most cases, these interventions can be performed on an outpatient basis.
