Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (vEDS) is a rare genetic disease exposing affected patients to lifethreatening
arterial and digestive accidents. These events typically begin in the early adulthood, and
repeat at unpredictable time intervals throughout the whole life. Superficial venous disease is common
in patients with vEDS and the presence of early-onset varicose veins even is a diagnostic criterion
of the disease. Surgical stripping of varicose veins is at high risk of life-threatening complications in
this population of patients. Consequently management of SVD is typically conservative (compression
therapy), despite the existence of validated, less traumatic and/or minimally invasive treatment options
of symptomatic SVD. We report here for the first time the successful treatment of both great and of the
left small saphenous veins in a patient with evolved and highly symptomatic SVD.
