Abstract:

Many variations and abnormalities are more frequently reported in veins than in arteries. The variations are more common in the upper segment of great saphenous vein in its tributaries, where it ends into the femoral vein. There is marked variation in the anatomy of the superficial venous system involving the individual tributaries at the Sapheno-Femoral Junction (SFJ), namely the superficial epigastric, circumflex iliac and external pudendal veins as well as the lateral or medial accessory saphenous veins. These variations in the upper tributaries of the vein are one of the frequent causes of failure to achieve the expected results following primary ligation for the treatment of varicose veins. In the recent past, anatomical studies related to the incidence and the pattern of variation in the tributaries of Great Saphenous Vein (GSV) in Indian population has been sparse. Hence the present study was done.

Keywords: Great Saphenous vein, Sapheno-FemoralJunction, Varicose veins.
