Resumo:

Recurrence of varicose veins after treatment has always been a very disappointing phenomenon for patients and surgeons alike. Up to the beginning of the 21st century, treatment of recurrent varicose veins varied between a minimally invasive treatment (mainly liquid sclerotherapy) and a maximally invasive re-intervention, including re-exploration of the groin or popliteal fossa and removal of all recurrent varicose veins. Although the majority of these patients belong to the C2-C3 clinical class of the CEAP classification, more advanced stages of chronic venous insufficiency (C4-C6) have been registered in 29 % of patients presenting with recurrent varicose veins after surgery.1 After 5 years clinical recurrence was seen at thigh level in 20 % of 50 limbs after primary versus 42 % of 50 limbs after redo surgery.5
