Title: Varicose Vein Surgery: History And Evolution [cirurgia De Varizes: História E Evolução]
Author: De Medeiros C.A.F.
Abstract: Since great saphenous vein stripping is a well established surgery, the use of a minimally invasive method to obtain the same effects indicates that short and medium-term benefits should prevail over expected risks. However, because it is a very common disease in the world population, there is great concern about this subject by government health institutions and correlated scientific societies. Therefore, the arguments about new treatment modalities must be well based, including to gain acceptance by the general public. To effectively evaluate new devices, there must be well designed clinical studies with groups and controls. All projects about this matter must be submitted to the appreciation of an ethics committee at the institution where the research will be carried out for previous approval.
