The term "recurrence" in chronic venous disease remains not yet well defined, despite numerous reports describing patterns and causes of the presence of recurrent varicose veins (RVVs). Moreover, saphenous trunk recanalization (STR) has also been documented as one of the major source of RVVs and it is widely used to indicate the "failure" of endovenous ablation. Finally, reappearance of venous symptoms (VSym) should be considered to reach a complete "recurrence" evaluation. RVVs, STR, and VSym rates and mutual co-presence after endovenous treatments are still unclear. The aim of this report is to describe and analyze these three recurrence components after 6 years in patients underwent radiofrequency ablation of the great saphenous vein.

Abstract

The term "recurrence" in chronic venous disease remains not yet well defined, despite numerous reports describing patterns and causes of the presence of recurrent varicose veins (RVVs). Moreover, saphenous trunk recanalization (STR) has also been documented as one of the major source of RVVs and it is widely used to indicate the "failure" of endovenous ablation. Finally, reappearance of venous symptoms (VSym) should be considered to reach a complete "recurrence" evaluation. RVVs, STR, and VSym rates and mutual co-presence after endovenous treatments are still unclear. The aim of this report is to describe and analyze these three recurrence components after 6 years in patients underwent radiofrequency ablation of the great saphenous vein.
