1Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Ankara City Hospital, Ankara, Turkey DOI : 10.9739/tjvs.2020.533 Many surgeons remove the varicose veins one by one. However, this technique is time-consuming with considerable blood loss, particularly in severely affected limbs. In advanced cases, varicose veins have a continuous structure and a chain-like appearance under the skin, and the use of this technique is associated with bleeding from the veins to which the extracted vein is connected. Herein, the Grasp-all-first technique (sequential extraction) which was developed for particularly advanced cases by the author of this manuscript was presented. Keywords : Ambulatory surgery, varices, varicose veins
