Complications Associated with Vein Stripping - Why is vein stripping avoided ?
Saturday, December 8, 2012

 

Complications associated with vein stripping and ligation

 

  1. Hematoma in the groin and along the tract of vein stripping in the thigh, leg and ankle.
  2. Infection in the groin incision or any other incisions in the thighs, legs and ankle.
  3. Significant bruising and pain following vein stripping which can last several weeks.
  4. Nerve injury or transaction injury. This can be quite disabling and debilitating.
  5. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

 

Because of such potential complicatins, we avoid vein stripping and perform the EVLT procedure, Venefit procedure (VNUS CLosure), ClariVein Procedure, microphlebectomy and foam sclerotherapy.
