          We have read two interesting reports recently published in JVS-VLD by O'Banion et al.1,2 In the first paper, the authors described a short-term outcome of superficial venous reflux treatment using cyanoacrylate (CA) or radiofrequency (RF) ablation in CEAP 6 patients.1 The second paper concerned the auxiliary perforator treatment in the same patients in the follow-up period.2 In both papers, the authors concluded that CA shows superiority over RF in time required to wound healing1 and requires less perforator interventions.
