OBJECTIVES The small saphenous vein (SSV) lies in close relationship with sural nerve and is at risk of damage during surgery or vein ablation procedures on this vein. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of puncture site for SSV endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) on the rate of post-operative sural nerve injury. DESIGN Randomised controlled study.
