Ligation and Stripping vein treatment title image

Ligation and stripping are minor surgical procedures applied for removing large varicose veins to prevent the formation of varicose ulcers.

Ligation encloses surgical tying off of a large vein in the leg, while stripping involves the removal of the damaged vein through incisions.

If some of the valves in the large vein are healthy, the damaged part of the vein can be closed off by ligation method. If the whole vein is damaged and all valves are unhealthy, it is removed by stripping method.
