Varicose veins affect a majority of adult patients and cause a decreased quality of life. In recent years, standard practice has been to perform thermoablation and local phlebectomies in the same procedure. There is conflicting data on the long-term outcome of the local varicose veins; there seems to be a need for more re-interventions if the local varicosities are not treated immediately. On the other hand, the prolonged combined procedure increases procedural pain and bleeding, as well as the risk for complications from deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism.
This trial aims to evaluate the need for immediate treatment of local varicosities and the potential sufficiency of main trunk treatment.

Treatment of varicose veins, hemorrhoids, gastric and esophageal varices, and peptic ulcer hemorrhage by injection or infusion of chemical agents which cause localized thrombosis and eventual fibrosis and obliteration of the vessels.
Enlarged and tortuous VEINS.
Skin breakdown or ulceration caused by varicose veins in which there is too much hydrostatic pressure in the superficial venous system of the leg. Venous hypertension leads to increased pressure in the capillary bed, transudation of fluid and proteins into the interstitial space, altering blood flow and supply of nutrients to the skin and subcutaneous tissues, and eventual ulceration.
