Introduction: No randomized clinical trial comparing treatment options for small saphenous vein (SSV) incompetence exists, and there is no clear evidence that this axis behaves the same as the great saphenous vein after treatment. This means that the... Read More about Randomized clinical trial of endovenous laser ablation versus conventional surgery for small saphenous varicose veins.

ObjectiveMany venous trials mix patients with great saphenous vein (GSV) and small saphenous vein (SSV) diseases. There is no evidence that both respond similarly to treatment and our aim was to test this assumption.Method This cohort study compares...
