Abstract: Lower limb DVT is a common clinical entity and a clear history of DVT is found in about 20% of patients with CVU. In addition, an unknown and probably unquantifiable number of people develop asymptomatic DVT without ever knowing it. The presence of thrombus within a vein, especially where it is occlusive, leads to an inflammatory, possibly Ischaemic phlebitis. This is thought to be due to obstruction of the vena venorum and direct humoral and/or cellular damage to the endothelium. Patients presenting to hospital medical college and research institute with varicose vein to undergo surgery for varicose vein. Each patient with a typical history of symptomatic varicosis will be subjected to physical examination and preliminary investigations. Pain at 24 hours measured by visual analog scale (0: No distress, 10: Agonizing) is significantly more associated with conventional with P<0.001.
