Cryosurgery is a relatively new treatment option for vein stripping in case of insufficiency of the great saphenous vein (GSV). A prospective randomized trial was performed to compare operation time, extracted vein length, and postoperative outcomes of cryosurgery with conventional short stripping. Forty patients with one-sided, duplex-proven insufficiency of the GSV were included. Operation time was shorter with cryosurgery, 17.6 ± 1.11 vs. 20 ± 0.80 min. Extracted vein length was… Expand
Early experience of transilluminated cryosurgery for varicose vein with saphenofemoral reflux: review of 84 patients (131 limbs)
TLDR
Cryosurgery to treat varicose veins is an effective and safe treatment modality in terms of postoperative complication, cosmetic result, and recurrence. Expand
Early Results of Cryosurgery in Varicose Veins in Korea: Safety and Feasibility
TLDR
Using cryosurgery techniques to treat varicose veins, the complication rates were minimal and outcomes were comparable to those of previous reports, suggesting this procedure is a safe and feasible treatment modality for varicOSE veins. Expand
A randomized trial of cryo stripping versus conventional stripping of the great saphenous vein.
TLDR
This multicenter randomized clinical trial compared cryo stripping of the great saphenous vein (GSV) with conventional stripping and showed small but significantly better results for patients after a conventional stripping. Expand
Outcomes of knee-groin great saphenous vein stripping in patients with chronic venous insufficiency
TLDR
Short GSV stripping may be considered as the first step surgical option in patients with chronic venous insufficiency and had better scores in general health category of SF-36, in categories of general health and emotional well-being, and in the parameters of night cramps and heaviness in the legs.

Conventional Versus Invaginated Stripping of the Great Saphenous Vein: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Controlled Clinical Trial
TLDR
Invagination of the GSV in uncomplicated primary varicosis may be associated with less surgical trauma compared to a conventional stripping technique. Expand

TLDR
Operation for varicose vein is one of the most commonly performed vascular operations and non-thermal, non-tumescent technique including mechanochemical ablation and cyanoacrylate embolization has been introduced and is widely used. Expand
Endovenous or Open Venous Surgery: Choices to Make
TLDR
In daily practice the quality of life to be gained by using endovenous procedures can be achieved with state of the art open surgery as well, and loss due to recurrences e.g. after neovascularization is compensated by superior single session results. Expand
Five‐year results of a randomized clinical trial comparing endovenous laser ablation with cryostripping for great saphenous varicose veins
This was the long‐term follow‐up of a previously reported randomized clinical trial comparing endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) with cryostripping for great saphenous varicose veins.
Randomized clinical trial comparing endovenous laser with cryostripping for great saphenous varicose veins
The aim of this randomized single‐centre trial was to compare the 2‐year results of endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and cryostripping for varicose veins.

TLDR
Both endoscopy and subfascial endoscopic perforating veins surgery meet the requirements of minimal invasive surgery, with excellent cosmetic and functional results. Expand

TLDR
Cryosurgery for varicose veins is as effective as the stripping procedure and avoids certain complications and the aesthetic result and functional results are better. Expand

The results show that the benefit of invaginating stripping of the LSV is not as obvious as is generally suggested. Expand

TLDR
Stripping reduced the risk of reoperation by two thirds after 5 years and should be routine for primary long saphenous varicose veins. Expand

TLDR
The results of cryosurgery of varicose veins were generally comparable to those obtained using classical surgery (stripping), exhibiting good cosmetic results. Expand
Objective assessment of high ligation without stripping the long saphenous vein
TLDR
This operation fails to control functionally significant reflux within the long saphenous vein in a high proportion of cases. Expand
Assessment of stripping the long saphenous vein in the treatment of primary varicose veins
TLDR
Data suggest that LSV reflux is more completely abolished by combining LSV stripping with SFJ ligation; stripping the LSV to the upper calf does not result in a higher incidence of injury to the saphenous nerve. Expand

TLDR
The results of the standard varicose vein surgery are satisfactory regarding recurrence rate and patient satisfaction, and are comparable to those published in prospective randomised studies. Expand
Complications of varicose vein surgery.
TLDR
The overall incidence of major complications was 0.8% and it is unlikely that major complications can be eliminated, but it is confident that this is restricted to minor complications. Expand
