BACKGROUND Saphenous vein reflux is often the underlying anatomic cause of varicose veins. It is necessary to eliminate this reflux originating at the saphenofemoral junction (SFJ) to treat the resultant varicose veins. OBJECTIVE To report 2-year follow-up results after closing the incompetent greater saphenous vein starting from its junction (SFJ) with the femoral vein using radiofrequency (RF) endoluminal ablation. METHODS One hundred and forty incompetent greater saphenous veins from 120… CONTINUE READING
