V.B. Goshchynsky, R.S. Kokhan
We carried out comparative characteristics of the flow of the postoperative period after performing classic saphenectomia (189 patients) and endovenous laser coagulation of varicose veins (201 patients) by the following indicators: suppurating wounds, pain syndrome, limforrea, bruises, oedemata, isolated distal thrombosis, temperature, duration of antibiotic treatment, duration of the operation, quantity of hemorrhage, duration of hospital stay. By all quantitative and qualitative indices, endovenous laser coagulation of varicose veins surpasses the classic saphenectomia.
