Microphlebectomy is a procedure where phlebitic cords of varicose veins are removed through tiny puncture wounds. The number of incisions depend on how many veins are present, how diffuse the problem is, and how fragile the veins are. If the vein being removed comes out in one piece and the whole thing is gone, then very few puncture wounds are made. If the whole thigh is involved with veins, such as the anterolatearal branches of the great saphenus vein, then approximately 10 puncture wounds are made.
