Vein stripping

Vein stripping is one of the most gruesome operations performed. A minor outpatient procedure where the patient goes home the same day, it consists of accessing a vein proximally and distally through two separate, small incisions, passing a wire through the vein, and essentially pulling the vein out through the other incision. Pressure is held to stop bleeding from all the venous branches.
