The development of recurrent varicose veins following primary varicose vein surgery is a significant problem, not only for patients but also for the National Health Service. Varicose vein surgery is one of the commonest elective general surgical operations done in the United Kingdom with over 34,000 operations performed per year. Approximately 20 per cent of procedures are done for recurrent varicose veins. Published recurrence rates range from seven to 70 per cent. Despite these findings, little research has been done into methods of preventing recurrence.
