[Advantages of the combination of surgical and sclerosing treatment of varicose veins. A new kind of therapy for varicose veins].Zentralbl Chir. 1991; 116(10):647-50.ZC
In many patients with varicose veins the combination of surgery and sclerotherapy gives good results and reduces the operating time for each patient considerably. Especially in all patients with recurrent and side branch varicose veins this method seems to be advantageous. During the last ten years we treated 3328 patients with varicose veins. The combined method was used in 64% (2130 patients).
