Results of stripping operation for varicose veins
- 25 Downloads
Approximately 150 stripping operations for primary varicose veins of the lower extremities were performed. Long-term evaluation (post-operative follow-up of more than five years) was made on 102 extremities and 83 per cent of these showed good or excellent results. Six patients were reoperated due to recurrence of varices. Accurate diagnosis and complete operation are most important in stripping operations.
