Anatomical Variations of the Sapheno-Femoral Junction and its Role in Early Recurrence after Laser Ablation of Vena Saphena Magna

The laser ablation of vena saphena magna/VSM/is a minimally invasive method which has become a common procedure in the treatment of varicose veins thanks to the fact that the complications reported after its application are rare and intermittent. Recurrence of varicose veins after this procedure is quite infrequent. In this discussion we will lay out our observations and results from the treatment of recurrent varicose veins after laser ablation of VSM due to variations in the anatomy of the saphenofemoral junction. We discuss the role of the high entry point of the anterior accessory saphenous vein/AASV/ along with some of the constant tributaries forming the sapheno-femoral junction/SFJ/or its autonomous drainage directly in vena femoralis/VF/in the manifestation of early recurrence of varicose veins.
