Abstract

Objective : To assess three-year results following "CHIVA". Design : Comparison between our results and data in the literature following stripping. Setting : Phlebologic Surgery, 46 Datini Street, Florence, Italy. Patients : 148 consecutive operated patients suffering from varicose veins (166 procedures). Interventions : "CHIVA", as described by Franceschi and Bailly. Main outcome measures : The presence of visible varicose veins, graded in three categories, according to Hobbs and Einarsson, as shown by clinical examination. Results : Very good results were obtained in 100 cases, who presented without any finding of varicose veins throughout the follow-up. Of the remaining 66, in 1 case we found a new varicose network completely developed, whereas in 65 cases only some visible residual or recurrent vessels were present. Conclusions : Significantly better results were observed in the CHIVA group compared with stripping groups (P <0,001 ).
