COMPARATIVE STUDY OF CLASSICAL SURGERY AND ENDOVENOUS LASER THERAPY IN THE TREATMENT OF LOWER LIMB VARICOSE VEINS (Abstract): The lack of a synthetic review on the safety, efficacy and cost of the two treatment procedures made us to address this problem. Nowadays, these two procedures are thought to solve most comprehensively the major causes of chronic superficial venous insufficiency and are preferred by most patients. Laser therapy is now gaining ground over conventional surgery of chronic superficial insufficiency. For this reason, we aimed at comparing the results and side effects of laser therapy and conventional surgery in chronic superficial venous insufficiency.
