Abstract

The fate of "Saphena"-Views into the past

We will try to give an overview of the historical development of the varicose vein treatment. All You will agree after a short time with the words of Minkiewicz (1862) "Comparative studies of all surgical procedures recommended against varices" that "the quantity of some healing methods proposed in surgical and therapeutic practice against certain diseases either proves that the former have not yet been sufficiently researched or that the actual healing method is yet to be discovered. This applies to a large extent to varices and the usual "operation methods", And we will try to describe our personal way from the radical surgery to the endovenous therapy of varicose veins. We will show our ideas, our mistakes and our experiences considering the historical developement.
