Conclusion Of Varicose Vein

Ambulatory phlebectomy is elegant by its mere simplicity. It is effective and safe with acceptable cosmetic results (see Figure 27.4). AP is a perfect complement to endovenous thermal ablation of the saphenous veins. With this combination, patients can expect all varicose veins to vanish following a one-hour procedure that employed only local anesthesia, in the comfort of a physician's office.
