A descriptive study to 36 patients surgically intervened with the diagnosis of deep chronic venous insuficcency (CVI) for valvular reflex at Manuel Ascunce Domenech Provincial Hospital Camagüey from January 1999 to July 2000 was carried out with the aim of defining the surgical technique used according to the etiologic classification of the CVF and knowing postoperatory evolution according to the hemodinamic and angiographic studies as well as the surgical technique used were established. Four combined variants were used as antireflux technique 66, 6 % of patients had a CVI of postphlebitic cause and after one year of the operation the 66, 1 % of case were cured. The surgical technique more frequently performed was the combination of external valvuloplastia internal saphenectomy, Cigorraga´s and resection of communicans; postphlebitic CVI prevailed and the postoperatory evolution in a year was better with the external valvuloplastia, internal saphenectomy and resection of communicans.
