Abstract

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.
