Sonographic Findings of Preserved Saphenous Veins in Primary Varicose Veins Patients
High ligation of the saphenous vein without stripping (HL) and selective stripping of upper part of the saphenous veins (SS ) have been performed to reduce surgical invasiveness of conventional varicose veins surgery and to preserve possible future graft materials for arterial reconstruction[1,2,3]. Aim of this study is to evaluate morphology and competence of preserved saphenous veins by sonography and Doppler flowmetry or Duplex scanning.
