Surgical treatment of severe chronic venous insufficiency caused by pulsatile varicose veins in a patient with tricuspid regurgitation.Phlebology. 2009 Apr; 24(2):79-81.P
A case of severe chronic venous insufficiency caused by pulsatile varicose veins in a 46-year-old man with tricuspid regurgitation is presented. Active venous leg ulcer complicated with recurrent venous bleeding and inefficacy of conservative management serve as indications for surgical treatment. This case demonstrates the possibility of radical surgical correction of pathological venous reflux by means of saphenofemoral ligation, foam sclerotherapy and subfascial endoscopic perforator surgery.
