- Brief summaryIn developed countries lower extremity venous insufficiency affects up to 15% of men and 35% of women. Radiofrequency ablation is an accepted treatment for patients with primary incompetence of the GSV and can be performed in an outpatient setting. The after-treatment in the Atrium MC Parkstad consists out of wearing personally measured class II TED stocking for 3 days. From our own observations and patient experiences, we know patients are restrained from mobilizing by the TED stocking and thus show passive behavior. This has a negative influence on the recovery. In this study we aim to include 100 patients who will undergo unilateral radiofrequency ablation of the GSV. We will randomise 50 patients to the control group (class II TED stocking during 72 hours) and 50 patients to the intervention group (class II TED stocking during 4 hours). Outcomes of this study are leg edema, post-operative pain, the existence of complications and days to full recovery.
