Most common variations of superficial veins of lower extremities were duplicated forms of v. saphena magna and topographical variations of saphenopopliteal junction. All the groups in the study showed increased number of women, both in presence of superficial veins variations and in diagnosing varicose and thombotic changes in veins.
