Foreword by Michel PERRIN, author of this rubric.
The objective of the present PREVAIT (PREsence of Varices After operatIve Treatment) rubric is to help vascular specialists (medical and surgical) identifying publications dealing with PREVAIT.

ASVAL; Barrier technique; CHIVA; Duplex ultrasonography; Endovascular surgical procedures;Laser; Long-term follow-up; Neovascularization; Radiofrequency; Randomized trial; Recurrent varicose veins; REVAS; Sapheno-femoral junction; Sapheno-popliteal junction; Saphenous stripping; Saphenous vein; Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy; Varicose vein recurrence; Varicose veins; Venous surgery.
Publications were then classified into eight topics. Some may belong to several topics.
