More than 50 years ago, the Swiss dermatologist
Dr Robert Muller developed ambulatory
phlebectomy, a brilliant demonstration of the
major role of dermatologists in the field of
phlebology. The technique is safe, reliable
and cost-effective, while at the same time
producing aesthetically pleasing results. Patients
can usually resume normal daily activities
immediately after the procedure or are
off work for a few days at most. Indications
for ambulatory phlebectomy include incompetent
saphenous veins (except the junctions)
and their tributaries, perforators, reticular
veins and reticular feeder veins, large
spider veins and dilated veins in other areas
such as around the eyes, on the arms or on
the back of the hands.
The tiny skin incisions do not usually leave
any scars or give rise to complications. Phlebectomy
can be used alone or in combination
with other procedures such as sclerotherapy,
endovenous techniques and surgery.
