TIMI, Jorge R. Ribas  e  DEL VALLE, Carlos Eduardo. Surgical treatment of varicose veins of the lower limbs in liver transplant recipients: a case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.1, pp.86-88.  Epub 13-Mar-2009. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492009005000004.

Liver transplantation is having progressively better outcomes, and quality of life is being more often addressed. Varicose veins of the lower limbs are common in the general population and cause symptoms in a significant number of cases, impairing quality of life. For patients in good clinical condition, with adequate graft function, surgical treatment for varicose veins of the lower limbs can be a safe option, with more effective and longer lasting outcomes. The authors report two cases of liver transplant recipients who had symptomatic varicose veins of the lower limbs and were submitted to varicose vein surgery following authorization from the liver transplantation team. Operations were uneventful, with good follow-up results. Surgery for varicose veins of the lower limbs can be safely performed in liver transplant recipients, and it is an effective and long lasting treatment for chronic venous insufficiency in these patients.

Palavras-chave : Varicose veins; lower limbs; liver transplantation; venous insufficiency.
