We had defined safety as: ABG results that were not worse than the baseline and that were not statistically different from the comparison modes (ASV and SIMV), not encountering high inspiratory pressures; and non-compromised haemodynamic parameters--all of which were measurable and would have been evident during the 2-hour study periods.
After application of routine haemodynamic monitoring (three-lead electrocardiogram, noninvasive blood pressure and pulse oximetry), anaesthesia was induced using a bolus intravenous injection of thiopentone 4 to 5 mg/kg.
Ligation plus stripping of the great saphenous vein results in significant improvement in venous haemodynamics, may eliminate concomitant deep venous reflux, provides symptomatic relief, and assists in ulcer healing.

Whether this assessment of haemodynamics makes meaningful outcome differences is a question that will be hard to answer, and it behoves the anaesthetic and intensive care communities to consider appropriate ways to assess this.
