Abstract: Varicosity of lower limb develops in a very slow process, asymptomatic and probably harmless and only when the complications of Varicosity like Pain, Edema, Ulcer, Skin changes and thrombosis occur, and then the patients present themselves for the relief. Commonly this problem is tackled either by a conservative approach or by surgical interference, both of which have their limitations. Each patient with a typical history of symptomatic varicosis was subjected to physical examination and preliminary investigations. History and examinations were completed as mentioned in the proforma. The patient was examined in standing position with good illumination, exposing both the lower limbs completely. Duration of surgery is statistically similar in two groups with P = 0.792. Six of the conventional group patient developed hematoma postoperatively which was drained immediately, out of these six patients two wounds got infected which were managed successfully with sensitive antibiotics and clean dressing. None of the patients in invagination group had hematoma or wound infection. The duration of stay in the hospital was almost similar in the both study group. Mean duration of stay in conventional group was 5.8 days and 5days in invagination group.
