    Pathogenesis: varicose veins

    As a result of congenital vein is weak and venous valve dysplasia
or missing, or the cause of acquired long-term work, like the long
standing, overwork, wash cold water from the cold stimulus, major
surgery, trauma, such as pregnancy, valve does not close properly, or
vein weak cannot normally withstand the pressure inside the vein and
extreme and expansion, and result in lower extremity deep venous
valve regurgitation of relativity, regurgitation of venous valve
pressure further enhances the distal vein, with the passage of time
leads to the distal vein expansion, extension, circuitous, Venous
Stasis (blood stasis), vein damage incidence of elastic fibers.

   Diagnostic criteria: varicose veins

   (1) have a long standing history of abdominal pressure increases
and, or family history of varicose veins.

   (2) patients with venous obvious the tortuous expansion, to stand.

   (3) deep vein patency, saphenous vein insufficiency, there may be
a perforating vein insufficiency.

   (4) Doppler or venography as shown in the expansion of the
saphenous vein the tortuous, valvular insufficiency.

   (5) may be associated with pigmentation, ulcer, thrambosis,
bleeding, ulcers and other complications.

   Varicose complications:

② pregnancy symptoms, given after birth tend to disappear, non-
surgical therapy; ③ estimated operation tolerance range.

   (2) hardening agent injection and compression therapy: Sclerosing
agents such as 5% of cod liver oil from intravascular injection, due
to the injection site, never in the groin area of greater saphenous
vein injection, cannot fundamentally treatment for varicose veins, a

the fundamental way. No symptoms, as long as there are no
contraindications, such as poor tolerance of surgery, surgical
treatment should be. Clinical surgical methods most commonly used is
a varicose large (small) saphenous vein stripping, surgical methods
are basically divided into three steps: ① ligation of the saphenous
or lesser saphenous vein; ② varicose saphenous stripping or lesser
saphenous vein; ③ ligation of the insufficiency of the veins; 4,
