This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To compare the effectiveness of endovenous LASER ablation therapy (EVLA), radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) versus conventional surgery in the management of short saphenous vein varices.
