Vein Stripping

With the advent of endovenous ablation the practice of vein stripping is virtually non-existent in the vein community. The procedure which consisted of making several incisions and the manipulation of a flexible tube between incisions and the vein being forcefully pulled out of the limb. With vein stripping there was increased bruising and a higher rate of deep vein thrombosis than with the more modern endovenous ablation treatment.  Saphenous vein ligation and stripping should NOT be a part of the discussion of treatment options of venous insufficiency in 2017.
