OBJECTIVE Axial deep venous reflux causes skin changes or ulcers in patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). The study aimed to review the results of correcting axial deep venous reflux using the novel valve-free popliteal vein external banding (PVEB) technique in patients with severe CVI. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 1252 patients (1252 limbs) who underwent PVEB for treatment of severe CVI from 2000 to 2015. The number and position of popliteal vein valves (PVVs) and… CONTINUE READING
