The management of varicose veins is evolving at pace but the speed of change often outstrips the evidence. Patients should expect to be offered the whole range of treatment options that are suitable for their particular circumstances. This range should include conservative management, surgery, endovenous ablation techniques, and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. If all the options are not discussed, patients should ask why.
