Endovenous saphenous vein obliteration in the form of radiofrequency or laser therapies has quickly ascended to a position of prime importance in the treatment of reflux within the superficial venous system. The technical aspects of these procedures, as well as their decreased morbidity when compared with saphenous vein stripping, make them highly appealing(More)
