Abstract Surgery for varicose veins is still the method of choice worldwide. When varicose veins require bilateral surgery, a single procedure often is the preferred choice by the patient. Today, unilateral varicose vein surgery is frequently performed as an outpatient procedure, while in many institutions bilateral surgery is done as an in-hospital procedure.
