The founder of the vein miniflebectomy technique is considered to be Robert Mueller, a Swiss dermatologist, phlebologist. For the first time, Dr. Müller applied the miniflebectomy method in the 1950's, as the doctor was not satisfied with the results of both sclerobliteration and surgical removal of individual venous vessels. Robert Müller wanted an alternative technique for radical removal of veins, but without the side effect of large, conspicuous scars after classical operations. The miniflebectomy method was presented by a Swiss doctor at the annual meeting of the French Society of Phlebologists in the 60 of the last century after about 10 years of independent practical application. In subsequent years, the technology improved and developed, new methods of manipulation, more modern tools (hooks) appeared.
Professor Zoltan Varadi
The greatest contribution to this process was made by Zoltan Varadi, seriously modifying the methodology and giving it new development vectors.
Miniflebectomy (microflebectomy) of veins is a surgical operation to remove varicose veins using punctures or small skin incisions. Also, miniflebectomy can be characterized as a radical intervention for the treatment of varicose veins with a very good cosmetic effect. Varicose veins with the help of miniflebectomy are completely removed.
Miniflebectomy (microflebectomy) of varicose veins
Small scars that form after manipulation are difficult to see with the naked eye. By the method of miniflebectomy, practically any segments of the veins located supra-fascial can be removed.
The differences in the options for using the vein miniflebectomy technique are mainly in the use of various surgical hooks. The following hooks for miniflebectomy are considered to be the most successful and best:
Varadi hooks for miniflebectomy
The procedure for miniflebectomy of varicose veins is performed under sterile conditions in the surgical operating room with the help of special tools: miniflebectomy hooks and Mosquito clamps. Varicose veins are removed through punctures and micro-cuts of the skin.
Stages of Varadi miniflebectomy
The operation of miniflebectomy is quite delicate, therefore the experience and manual skills of the specialists performing the procedure are of great importance.
The main indication for miniflebectomy of the veins of the lower extremities is the presence of varicose veins, nodes. Miniflebectomy is a planned procedure shown for varicose dilatation of the main vein inflows and the presence of reflux in them. Also, indications for miniflebectomy may be complications of varicose veins:
- Recurrent thrombophlebitis.
- Bleeding from venous nodes.
- Trophic disorders associated with chronic venous insufficiency.
- Chronic venous edema.
- Hyperpigmentation of the skin.
- Trophic ulcer.
A contraindication for miniflebectomy may be the presence of local and concomitant severe systemic pathology.
- Infection and dermatitis in the intervention area. Before the operation, it is necessary to stop the inflammatory process.
- The presence of pronounced venous and (or) lymphatic edema in the area of operation. Edematous phenomena should be eliminated or reduced to reduce the likelihood of postoperative complications.
- Severe cardiovascular disease, lung diseases, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, disorders of the blood coagulation system or immune system. Before the intervention, stabilization of the underlying disease is necessary.
- Pregnancy. Miniflebectomy is postponed for at least 12 weeks after birth. During this period, self-stopping of a significant part of varixes occurs.
Before the miniflebectomy procedure, a detailed assessment of venous blood flow using ultrasound duplex scanning is mandatory and the course of the operation is planned.

A very important aspect that affects the success of the operation is the preoperative marking of the target veins with a marker, which allows you to remove all pathological vessels in one procedure. Tumescent anesthesia developed by Jeff Klein is used for pain relief. A solution is used that includes low concentrations of anesthetics, which allows for more extensive interventions in a surgical room.
Varadi miniflebectomy in Moscow
18 G needles are used to perform skin incisions at the Moscow Medical Center. This minimizes surgical trauma. Manipulation is carried out using special hooks. The most popular among European phlebologists are the hooks of Varadi, Muller, Ashe, Ramele. The tools of all the above authors were used in the practice of our center, but the hooks of Mueller and Varadi showed themselves best.
The hook is inserted through a puncture of the skin and moves in the direction perpendicular to the vein. After capturing the vessel, it is carefully removed into the wound. Then the vein is captured by the clamp. Then rotational movements remove the varicose vein. After the procedure is completed, sterile dressings are applied and compression knitwear is put on.
After the miniflebectomy procedure, we recommend that all patients of the Innovation Phlebological Center walk from 10 to 30 minutes. This allows you to verify the reliability of the dressings and provide the best prevention of possible side effects. Most patients do not need analgesics after the procedure, however, the doctor prescribes a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug in case of pain. The next day after the procedure, the patient is scheduled to receive a doctor with replacement dressings and medical monitoring of wounds. All necessary recommendations are given.
Using the miniflebectomy procedure, varicose veins of various localization can be completely and qualitatively removed. As a result of the operation, the patient has several spot scars that are subtle enough to satisfy even the most demanding and demanding patients. Possible complications in most cases are not dangerous and pass on their own. Among them, hyper- and hypopigmentation, local inflammation and some skin reactions caused by compression and contact with dressings can be distinguished. Very rarely bleeding, hematoma formation, secondary telangiectasias, lymphorrhea, thrombophlebitis of superficial veins can occur. If the specialist has the proper experience, a good preoperative examination and a well-designed treatment plan, complications and side effects of the miniflebectomy procedure are practically excluded.
Miniflebectomy (microflebectomy) is an aesthetic procedure for the radical removal of varicose veins, which has one of the best cosmetic effects from topical methods presented in modern phlebology. Even the elimination of varicose nodes of a significant size, including the presence of thrombotic masses, gives a very good aesthetic result.
Prices in Moscow for the innovative miniflebectomy procedure can vary significantly in individual medical centers. Sometimes the cost of miniflebectomy exceeds the cost of a much more resource-consuming and technological thermobliteration. Prices for the modern miniflebectomy operation at the Moscow Innovation Phlebology Center have remained constant for many years and are available to most residents of Moscow and the Moscow Region.

Payment by Visa and Mastercard is possible. At the end of the course treatment, the patient is issued a package of documents for submission to the tax office for tax deduction.
The benefits of the modern procedure for miniflebectomy of varicose veins can be discussed for a long time. Despite the long history in European phlebological practice, the operation not only has not lost its relevance, but today it is gaining new fans from among phlebologists, general surgeons and vascular surgery specialists. Also, the miniflebectomy method has found a new life in the form of the Asval technique.

The advantages of miniflebectomy are the complete and radical elimination of varicose veins with the help of pinpoint skin punctures. The anatomical features of the location of the vessels are not particularly difficult for an experienced specialist who is well versed in the technique of the procedure. Modern surgical instruments, preoperative diagnostics on the latest generation equipment make the procedure one of the best ways to treat varicose veins in a good Moscow phlebological clinic.

Oksana from Moscow is interested in: which is better, miniflebectomy or sclerotherapy of a vein?
Dear Oksana! Miniflebectomy and sclerosis (sclerobliteration) of venous vessels are good modern methods of treating varicose veins. Both miniflebectomy and sclerobliteration are successfully used to remove varicose veins by the best phlebologists in Moscow. Each of these methods has its own definite advantages. Only a specialist after in-person consultation and ultrasound scanning of the venous system can tell you which technique: miniflebectomy or sloerobliteration is right for you.
Lyudmila from Moscow asks: when will the residual veins dissolve after a miniflebectomy?
Dear Lyudmila! For an accurate answer to your question about when the veins will dissolve after a miniflebectomy, you need to have more detailed information regarding your particular case. Ideally, you need a full-time consultation with a specialist. During the procedure of miniflebectomy, varicose veins are almost completely removed. Separate vessels remaining after miniflebectomy can independently subside in a period of one to six months. In separate and rather rare cases, additional sclerobliteration procedures may be required.
