© Schattauer 2014. More than 50 years ago, the Swiss dermatologist Dr Robert Muller developed ambulatory phlebectomy, a brilliant demonstration of the major role of dermatologists in the field of phlebology. The technique is safe, reliable and cost-effective, while at the same time producing aesthetically pleasing results. Patients can usually resume normal daily activities immediately after the procedure or are off work for a few days at most. Indications for ambulatory phlebectomy include incompetent saphenous veins (except the junctions) and their tributaries, perforators, reticular veins and reticular feeder veins, large spider veins and dilated veins in other areas such as around the eyes, on the arms or on the back of the hands. The tiny skin incisions do not usually leave any scars or give rise to complications. Phlebectomy can be used alone or in combination with other procedures such as sclerotherapy, endovenous techniques and surgery.
