information packLigation and Stripping

This methodology is a more traditional approach for the treatment of varicose veins. It is estimated that 10% of patients will not be suitable for this minimally invasive technique, however. Those that do qualify will be given strict instructions to follow beforehand to ensure a pleasant and positive outcome.

Possibilities During the Vein Surgery

  • General or spinal anaesthesia
  • Groin incision to disconnect the saphenous vein from the deep vein, with vein stripping to just below the knee
  • Intravenous antibiotics
  • Low dose Heparin to prevent deep vein thrombosis
  • Small dressings to cover smaller incisions
  • Pressure bandages to remain in place for 24 hours
  • Skin closure with sutures below the dermal layer that do not need to be removed
