摘要Subfascial endoscopic perforator vein surgery (SEPS) was recently introduced as a minimally invasive method to ligate incompetent perforating veins in patients with severe chronic venous insufficiency of the lower extremities. Herein we describe a technique in which we used a 5-mm ultrasonic scalpel for the transection of perforating veins in 16 SEPS performed in 14 patients. The use of the ultrasonic scalpel allowed for the precise coagulation and transection of the perforator vein with hemostasis, while avoiding the use of metal clips. Our initial results showed that the technique was feasible with minimal morbidity. We recommend the use of the ultrasonic scalpel as an alternative tool to transect perforating veins in SEPS.
