Varicose vein surgery is generally considered to have little risk of postoperative deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This prospective study examined the incidence of DVT in patients undergoing varicose vein surgery.

Varicose vein surgery and deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis
It is argued that routine use of heparin thromboprophylaxis in a procedure which often results in a degree of bruising postoperatively may actually worsen such bruising or lead to haematoma formation, a common and troublesome side-effect, which surgeons aim to avoid, and therefore should be used in selective cases only.

The risk factors for superficial vein thrombosis (OVT) are close to those for Venous Thromboembolism (VTE). However, the risk of these superficial cutaneous vein thromboses is considerably higher ifExpand

Incidence and risk factors of early deep venous thrombosis after varicose vein surgery with routine use of a tourniquet.
A higher incidence of postoperative DVT is found with routine use of a tourniquet during varicose vein surgery than has been reported previously, and among the factors examined, GVD had the highest predictive power for post surgical DVT. Expand
The management of varicose veins.
Foam sclerotherapy and radiofrequency ablation were associated with less pain and faster recovery than endovenous laser ablation and surgical stripping and a randomized controlled study in multiple centers is warranted to verify which approach is better than others for the treatment of varicose veins.

Calf deep venous thrombosis. A wolf in sheep's clothing?
Traditional anticoagulation treatment with heparin sodium and warfarin sodium of symptomatic patients with C-DVT appears to prevent extension, embolization, and early recurrence, and there is no convincing evidence that C- DVT leads to chronic venous insufficiency or whether the risks of antICOagulation exceed the risksof no treatment.
