  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

By the introduction of minimally invasive technique; subfascial endoscopic perforator surgery (SEPS), sur-geons have become increasingly attracted to the use of SEPS for chronic venous insufficiency accompanied with such as stasis ulcer. The safety, feasibility, and efficacy of SEPS have been widely demonstrated. In this report, we showed appropriate use of various surgical devices for the following procedures; approaching the subfascial space, dissection of the subfascial tissues, securing the working space, and isolation and division of incompetent perforating veins (IPVs).
