A multidisciplinary Venous Reflux Research Consensus Panel was convened to develop a prioritized research agenda for the use of endovenous techniques to treat lower-extremity VR. The Panel recommended establishment of a prospective registry with which to compare the long-term outcomes of surgical and endovenous methods of treating truncal reflux. Critical basic science initiatives were also identified that have strong potential to spur future advances in VR treatment.
