Patient with over 30 years of developing painful varicosities. Was under the impression there was no remedy to her problem. Was noted to have extensive reflux in 3 of the main veins of the superficial system. Underwent ablation of all 3 veins using the Venefit procedure and later on an Ambulatory Phlebectomy to remove the residual varicosities.
As the varicose veins empty out once the patient is in the procedure table laying flat, prior to performing a phlebectomy, the bulging varicose veins are drawn over to have a guide during the procedure.
