Our study on chronic vessel wall inflammation and fibrosis was done on 100 subjects admitted in MVJ Medical College, who were diagnosed with Doppler proven saphenofemoral junction in planned for elective Trendelenburg operation. The vein samples for the pathological analysis were obtained from saphenofemoral junction ligation samples and were sent to the Department of Pathology, for analysis to look for evidence of fibrosis and collagen deposition, using Haematoxylin and Eosin stain.
The procedures done included Trendelenburg operation, complete stripping of long saphenous vein and subfascial ligation of perforators under spinal anaesthesia.
Trendelenburg operation in 76% (38 cases), subfascial ligation of perforators in 78% (39 cases) and SSV ligation in 6% (3 cases).
