Abstract

Ambulatory phlebectomy (AP) is a common, minor, office-based procedure using a specially designed hook inserted through a minute stab incision to avulse and completely remove superficial varicose veins. AP is generally well tolerated and results in a high degree of patient satisfaction. Advantages of AP include short surgical time, ability to be performed under local tumescent anesthesia, low recurrence rate compared to sclerotherapy, minimally obtrusive scars and dyschromia compared to other methods, and immediate postoperative ambulation, which helps prevent vascular complications.1-4
