INTRODUCTION Twenty to thirty percent of patients with symptomatic chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) are found to have combined superficial and deep venous reflux on duplex testing. It is currently unclear whether endovenous ablation (EVA) of the saphenous vein will result in correction of CVI without addressing the deep venous reflux. In this study, we examined deep venous reflux velocities to determine whether these would predict outcome after endovenous ablation. METHODS Patients with… CONTINUE READING
