Why do not we eliminate saphenous vein in surgery?

Why we chose CHIVA
  1. It is known that people who have varicose veins present alterations in the veins and tendency to recur. Thus, the less relapses and the easier the treatment, the better. Maintaining the saphenous vein “guides” vein recurrences and facilitates treatment if new veins appear. CHIVA presented fewer recurrences in the long term than stripping in randomized clinical trials.
  2. It is possible to preserve the saphenous vein for future use in bridges for use in the heart or limbs. May be important in cases of angina and ischemia.
  3. Maintain leg circulation if recurrences, thrombosis, or trauma occur in the future that create a need for greater circulation and drainage. (The saphenous vein is the natural bridge of the leg).
  4. Procedure adapts to the types of disease and sites of varicose veins.
  5. It preserves the drainage function of the saphenous vein to reduce recurrences of collaterals and microvarices.
  6. Facilitates control of varicose vein progression in the event of a new deep flow vanishing point. (The new leaking points are common and there is no way to avoid them so far).
  7. The smaller the size and the lower the risk the better the procedure. Local anesthesia has low risk. In addition, local anesthesia prevents nerve damage that occurs in procedures with spinal cord or general and tumescent anesthesia.
