Varicose veins represent a major cause of patient morbidity and health service expense. Open surgery has been the mainstay of treatment for varicose veins for over a century. However, the management of superficial venous reflux has been revolutionized in the past decade by the introduction and enthusiastic adoption of endovenous treatment modalities. Techniques such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy have increased dramatically in popularity and numerous comparative randomized studies have been conducted. In this chapter, the evidence for traditional and endovenous interventions for varicose veins, as well as common complications and their management, is discussed.
