Comparing local tumescent anesthesia and spinal anesthesia methods during and after endovenous radiofrequency ablation of vena saphena magna that includes mini-phlebectomy operations.


Local or spinal anesthesia methods can be used during radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the great saphenous vein. There is a gap in the literature regarding comparing and contrasting the side effects of the mentioned two methods. This study aims to retrospectively compare the spinal anesthesia method with the local tumescent anesthesia method during RFA of the great saphenous vein that also includes mini-phlebectomy.
