Phlebectomy Instruments

Ambulatory phlebectomy, a procedure for treating varicose veins, necessitates adequate lighting and an adjustable operating table allowing the patient to assume a Trendelenburg position. Although direct intraoperative support is seldom needed, the presence of a nurse or assistant in the office is advisable, with emergency equipment and supplies readily accessible. The procedure typically requires only a limited array of surgical instruments.

The varicose vein is delicately dissected by undermining it with the stem of the phlebectomy hook, predominantly following its course and slightly extending perpendicular to it. Once freed from fibro adipose attachments, the vein can be grasped using the harpoon of the hook and gently removed with mosquito forceps held in the other hand. Hemostasis is ensured by applying local compression using a sterile gauze strip held in the non-dominant hand after the vein has been excised.
