In this procedure, the provider makes incisions to access the long or short saphenous vein, ligates and divides the vein, and then removes the vein with the help of a stripping device. The provider also excises an ulcer including the deep fascia and nearby soft tissues and places a skin graft over the site. He may tie off superficial veins that connect with deeper veins. This procedure is most commonly done to treat varicose veins.
