ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Cockett's operation and popliteal resection in the treatment of leg ulcers. The etiology of the ulcers in each case was studied through a careful analysis of the history, phlebography and microscopic examination of resected parts of veins. Clinical examination of the 122 ulcer cases gave evidence that pronounced edema was present in 82 cases. The technique employed consisted of placing the leg in a nearly vertical position and then introducing the contrast medium into the deep vein trunks of the lower leg. Dynamic phlebography of this kind was employed in 87 cases, nearly three-fourths of the whole number. Edema sharply limited to the lowest part of the leg and especially to the vicinity of the ulcers--Cockett's operation, most often supplemented by stripping procedures.
