1Kalp ve Damar Cerrahisi AD, İnönü Üniversitesi Tıp Fakültesi, Malatya Objective: In this study, we aimed to study the effectiveness of Saphenous vein strip- ping procedure and early period results in patients with varicose veins who have light and mode- rate deep venosus reflux. Material and Methods: Between March 2006-October 2009, 202 patients underwent Saphenous vein stripping surgery. 68 of them had preoperatively determined deep venous reflux. In these patients mean age was 42 ± 1.5 and 67.6% of them were male. Control doppler ultrasonography were applied to 15 of patients postoperatively after 7.8 ± 3.9 months. Results: Average hospital stay was 1 day, only 3 patients stayed more than 1 day because of headache, eme- sis, weakness complaints caused by spinal anesthesia. There was not any operative mortality. At none of these patients, complications such as bleeding, hematoma and infection were seen. In 68.8% of patients, deep venous reflux disappeared. Conclusion: The elimination of reflux and pathologies in the superficial venous system in patients with varicose veins accompanied by deep venous reflux has a corrective effect on the deep venous system. Saphenous vein stripping can be applied sa- fely and with low morbidity. Clinical relief were achieved postoperatively. Deep venosus reflux disappeared at great majority of patients. Long-term follow-up of our patients continues. Keywords : Deep venous reflux, Saphenous vein stripping, varicosity surgery
