Can We or should we remove or destroy a saphenous in surgery?

The most frequent question in the vascular office is whether we can and should remove the saphenous. In our opinion, the answer is that we shouldn’t.

The saphenous matter is important for the future of the patient. This occurs both for saphenous bridges and for receiving flow of collateral that develops in the future. See the subject on the page about the main reasons to keep the saphenous. See the subject in the post about where the blood goes after destroyed or removed the saphenous.
