The operation most in favour consists in ligation of the artery above and below the varix, the vein remaining untouched.
A varix developed, but was only discovered by accident ten years later.
In the former a varix still exists, and at the end of seven months the pulse is still over 100.
Up to the time of discovery of the varix no inconvenience had been felt, although the patient was of athletic habits.
We are here concerned with varix as it occurs in the veins of the lower extremity.
In one case in my experience the posterior tibial was cut down upon, when the varix was probably peroneal in situation.
Cramp-like pains in the muscles are often associated with varix of the deep veins.
I have grave doubts, however, whether the varix can often be permanently cured by this operation.
varix at the lower end of the œsophagus may give rise to hæmatemesis, and be mistaken for gastric ulcer.
varix in the leg is met with during and after pregnancy, and in persons who stand upon their feet for long periods.
