Leg varices often show a peculiar and regular tortuosity, their course resembling the meander of river. The meanders of the great saphenous vein tend to start in certain regions, viz. at the levels of the union of a perforant with the superficial venous system. Knowledge of the underlying mechanism of such meandering of the veins is meagre, but as the course of such vessels seems to be approximations of sine-generated curves, the curves of minimum total loss of energy and hence induced by hemodynamic forces, a search for such a background may be rewarding. A morphologic study of early meanders and the neighboring vein compartments may yield valuable information about the hemodynamics involved. This paper reports an x-ray study of early meander formations of the great saphenous vein in the thigh and in the upper part of the lower leg.

    Background: Little is known about the ideal residual length of the great saphenous vein (GSV) stump and its potential role in complications such as acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and recanalization. This study was designed to learn about the natural history of the residual GSV stump length...

    Abstract  Leiomyosarcomas rarely arise in primary veins, especially the great saphenous vein. We have found only 20 case reports of leiomyosarcoma arising in the great saphenous vein, most of which manifested as nonspecific symptoms of advanced disease, such as a palpable mass, swelling,...

    Background: Cryosurgery was recently introduced as a treatment for varicose veins in the lower extremities. Cryosurgery with freezing probes can be used to remove the great saphenous vein (GSV) via an inguinal incision alone. The aim of this study was to assess early outcomes and the feasibility...
