Ambulatory Phlebectomy

 

Ambulatory Phlebectomy was introduced in the 1960ís.  This technique is done as an outpatient procedure.  Surface veins are pulled out under local anaestheticMultiple small incisions are used. Immediate compression and ambulation are to follow.  Bruising is common and resolves spontaneously.  This type of treatment is used to complete the job after the main veins have been treated by either surgery or EVLT.  This treatment can be an alternative to sclerotherapy of the surface veins, obviously with scarring from the multiple incisions.
