Ambulatory phlebectomy according to muller

Ambulatory phlebectomy according to muller

Phlebectomy is the removal of varicose veins by making a small incision in the skin and pulling out the varicose vein using a hooked needle. “Ambulatory” means you will be able to walk immediately after treatment. Not all varicose veins are suitable to be treated with phlebectomy. At our clinic, we usually use this method to remove the larger superficial veins. The operation is performed under local anaesthetic. The incisions are very small (2 to 3 mm), and may be “sutured” using a small adhesive plaster. Usually several incisions will need to be made (approximately every 10 cm) to remove a varicose vein completely. The treatment itself is not painful. You will feel the local anaesthetic, but that is usually not experienced as very painful.

The main advantage of phlebectomy is that the vein that has been removed will not grow back (this does sometimes occur with other methods). The disadvantage of the intervention is that you will receive small incisions in your skin. These usually heal perfectly, but sometimes some tiny scars remain visible
