Routine preoperative duplex examination led to an improvement in results 2 years after surgery for primary varicose veins. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of preoperative duplex imaging after 7 years, in relation to other risk factors for varicose vein recurrence. 
Long‐term outcomes of endovenous laser ablation and conventional surgery for great saphenous varicose veins
TLDR
The aim of this study was to report the 5‐year outcomes from an RCT of surgery versus EVLA for treatment of symptomatic great saphenous varicose veins. Expand
Residual incompetent tributaries after varicose vein surgery increased the need for reintervention after 8 years.

TLDR
Residual incompetent tributaries after treatment of varicose veins will increase the reintervention rate in the long term, as much as leaving a trunk vein untreated. Expand

  • 2016
TLDR
The use of an ECS does not prove to be of greater benefit in the quality of life and the mean time to return to work; ECS therapy does reduce the severity of pain and oedema during the first week after surgery in patients with uncomplicated varicose veins. Expand
Varicose vein recurrence and patient satisfaction 10-14 years following combined superficial and perforator vein surgery: a prospective case study.

TLDR
Despite a fair number of DUS-detected recurrences, the overall long-term result, from the patients' point of view was surprisingly favorable and Technically well performed open venous surgery seems to result in a durable long- term outcome. Expand
Great uncertainty regarding treatment of varicose vein recurrence
TLDR
Long term reports of results of redo surgery are limited but suggest reasonably good results from open surgical intervention and are non-existent for the endovenous techniques. Expand
Comparative Study between Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy, Radiofrequency Ablation & Endo-Venous Laser Ablation in Treatment of Great Saphenous Vein Reflux
TLDR
This study demonstrated that EVLA & RFA are efficient modalities for the treatment of GSV varicose veins in the medium term, even though some patients in the UGFS group developed recanalization of the GSV. Expand
Lymphatic Complications after Varicose Veins Surgery: Risk Factors and how to Avoid Them
TLDR
Older age, more advanced clinical stage and obesity were associated with a higher frequency of LC, and a mini-invasive and selective surgery has significantly reduced the occurrence of LC. Expand
The management of superficial venous incompetence
TLDR
The management of superficial venous incompetence of the leg is reviewed, focusing on the effectiveness of the procedures most commonly used and their complication rates, using data from the most valid prospective cohort studies and randomised controlled trials of the past 25 years. Expand
Comparative Study of Open Surgery and Radiofrequency Ablation in the Treatment of Varicose Veins
TLDR
Though the outcome among the two procedures seems to be nearly equal, RFA is evolving to be the best for treating varicose veins, and in the treatment of recurrence. Expand
The endovenous revolution
TLDR
The introduction of many endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) devices provides good examples of this behaviour, resulting in widespread use based on small numbers of inadequately powered studies, and it must also be acknowledged that research in EVTA is often sponsored by manufacturers, influencing the dissemination of information in scientific papers and at home.

Randomized clinical trial of routine preoperative duplex imaging before varicose vein surgery
Duplex imaging is used increasingly for preoperative evaluation of varicose veins, but its value in terms of the long‐term results of surgery is not clear.
Quality of Life after Surgery for Varicose Veins and the Impact of Preoperative Duplex: Results Based on a Randomized Trial
TLDR
It is concluded that preoperative duplex before VV surgery did not significantly improve QoL after 2 years in spite of improved surgical results. Expand

  • E. Turton, D. Scott, +4 authors R. Kester
  • Medicine
  • European journal of vascular and endovascular surgery : the official journal of the European Society for Vascular Surgery
  • 1999
TLDR
New sites of reflux, which may resolve spontaneously, occur in the early postoperative period despite adequate varicose vein surgery, it is hypothesis that this is a manifestation of the effect of altered venous haemodynamics in a system of susceptible veins. Expand

TLDR
Varicose veins recurred despite technically correct surgery confirmed on post-operative duplex ultrasonography, and the likelihood of recurrence increased in the presence of SSV reflux, perforating vein incompetence and post-thrombotic deep vein incompetence. Expand

TLDR
This study shows that the recurrence of varicose veins after surgery is not uncommon, however, the clinical condition of most affected limbs remains improved and Rigorous evaluation of patients and assiduous surgical technique might reduce recurrence due to technical and tactical failures. Expand
Recurrent varicose veins: sonography-based re-examination of 210 patients 14 years after ligation and saphenous vein stripping.
TLDR
Post-operative varices seem to develop less often after SPJ surgery than after SFJ surgery and according to the data, obesity (BMI > or = 30) constitutes a significant risk factor. Expand
Randomised clinical trial comparing endovenous laser ablation with stripping of the great saphenous vein: clinical outcome and recurrence after 2 years.
TLDR
It is shown that similar improvements in clinical severity scores and quality of life were gained in both treatments, and VCSS, Aberdeen Varicose Vein Severity Score and several domains of the Medical Outcomes Study Short Form 36 (SF36)quality of life score improved significantly in both groups.

  • 2004
TLDR
Recurrence of VV after SFJ ligation is common irrespective of perioperative difficulties or the surgeon's experience, and the anatomy of recurrence in the groin is difficult to classify according to the Edinburgh system mainly because neovascularization is hard to verify. Expand
Randomised trial of pre-operative colour duplex marking in primary varicose vein surgery: outcome is not improved.
TLDR
The trial has not demonstrated any additional benefit of pre-operative colour duplex marking over that of clinical and hand held Doppler marking in terms of satisfactoryvaricose vein surgery performance at 6 weeks or 12 months in patients with primary varicose veins of the long saphenous system. Expand
Late recurrent saphenofemoral junction reflux after ligation and stripping of the greater saphenous vein.
TLDR
A 34-year clinical follow-up study shows a 60% incidence of junctional and circumjunctional reconnections after ligation of the true saphenofemoral junction and its related tributaries. Expand
