Is microphlebectomy the same thing as ambulatory phlebectomy?

Microphlebectomy . 7 answers . 4 years ago

I have large varicose veins on both legs and am trying to figure out what the best treatment is. Microphlebectomy and ambulatory phlebectomy both are surgical procedures, and they sound kind of the same. Which is better?

They are the same procedure usually done in conjunction with
endovenous ablation (either laser or radiofrequency).

Micro-phlebectomy refers to the removal of veins via very small incisions (often needle size). Ambulatory phlebectomy refers to the fact that the Phlebectomy is performed in a outpatient setting. The terms refer to the same procedure. Only a physical examination and an Ultrasound can determine the best treatments for a patient.

They are the same procedure. Involves the use of very small incisions next to the varicose veins and using especial instruments pull the varicose veins. They do not require stitches. The recovery is fast. Patient needs to wear compression stockings for at least 2 weeks post-procedure. It is used for large superficial varicose veins.

Microphlebectomy is exactly the same procedure as ambulatory phlebectomy. Micro refers to the tiny incisions made and ambulatory refers to the fact that patients can get up and walk immediately after the procedure without the need for hospital admission. Before proceeding with this procedure, you should be evaluated for reflux.

They are the same thing.
Make sure that you choose a Board Certified Vascular Surgeon for this
procedure, so that if complications develop, he can best treat them.
