Crossectomy or ligation

With a crossectomy treatment, the main vessel that causes the varicose veins is tied in the groin area or at the back of the knee and, when possible, a few centimetres of the vessel is then removed. This way, the blood in the main vessel can no longer flow back.

When will this be applied?

This treatment is still used when a laser or RF treatment is not possible. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic.
