Conference paper


The purpose of every operation of varicose veins of lower extremities is the achievement of the best possible effect both functional and cosmetic. This is possible due to prior careful diagnosing and precise marking of varicosities before the operations. The use of specific instruments such as Varady hooks [1] makes it possible to remove them through very small incisions. Since we had no access to the hooks used for “microphlebectomy” we constructed the hook which is a bit different from the ones used so far but still we might find it useful.
