Varicose veins can be caused by several patho-physiological mechanisms, common among them are venous hypertension, incompetence of valves, changes in vein structure, inflammation and sheer stress, venous outflow obstruction or calf pump failure. Materials and Methodology: The present study has been carried out on 80 patients who had varicose veins of lower extremities. All patients underwent high ligation with stripping. Follow up was done at 1 month, 3 months and 6 months. Patient outcome and complications were record. Results: It was found that most common complication reported was tenderness (n=57) followed by infection in 15 patients. It was found that the ulcer size improved significantly. It was also found that majority (n=27) of the patients in returned to work in 10 days of treatment and day by 15 and day 20, 23 and 19 patients respectively had returned to work.
