Which veins can be ligated?
As far as venous injuries are concerned, almost all veins including the infra-renal inferior vena cava can be ligated where necessary. Venous injuries need repair only in special situations. Popliteal vein is usually repaired rather than ligated.
What is SFJ ligation?
SFJ ligation was generally understood to be performed by completely dissecting the SFJ and dividing the cribriform fascia to enable identification of the true junction and its ligation flush with the common femoral vein. The dissection was expected to reveal five or more junctional tributaries (Fig 1).
What are the side effects of venous ablation?
Complications after endovenous thermal ablation may include bruising along the site of ablation, pain along the site of ablation, the development of a blood clot in the veins in the treated leg, and irritation of the nerves that run along with the treated veins.
What vein is Sfj?
The sapheno-femoral junction (SFJ) is located at the saphenous opening within the groin and formed by the meeting of the great saphenous vein (GSV), common femoral vein and the superficial inguinal veins (confluens venosus subinguinalis).
Is vein ligation painful?

Does vein ablation help circulation?
Vein ablation treatment is minimally invasive. Varicose veins cause scar tissue to form, leading veins to close. Vein ablation treatment uses radiofrequency or laser energy to heat and collapse those veins, allowing for proper blood flow and circulation.
How serious is vein ablation?
Varicose Vein Treatment (Endovenous Ablation of Varicose Veins) Endovenous ablation uses energy to cauterize (burn) and close varicose veins. Doctors use it to help ease symptoms such as pain, swelling, and irritation. Ablation is safe, less invasive than surgery, and leaves virtually no scars.
Where is Sfj located?
The center of the SFJ lies in a square extending 1-4 cm lateral and up to 3 cm below the pubic tubercle in >90% of adults. The junction is slightly closer to the pubic tubercle in women. These results provide a more robust guide to the surface anatomy of the normal SFJ.
What is SFJ incompetence?
SFJ incompetence is a major color Doppler ultrasound finding of varicose veins and its grading by color Doppler ultrasonography is feasible. It is important to notice that SFJ incompetence can be present in patient with no visible varicose vein.
How long will my leg hurt after vein surgery?
Your Recovery Your leg may feel stiff or sore for the first 1 to 2 weeks. Your doctor will give you pain medicine for this. You can expect your leg to be very bruised at first. This is a normal part of recovery and may last 2 to 3 weeks.
