The story of a surgeon who in a country hospital in Sweden became a pioneer of modern phebology. He helped to set the standard of venography and heparin treatment for deep venous thrombosis and post-thrombotic valvular insufficiency more than 60 years ago. This happened when the surgeon Gunnar Bauer, stimulated by advancement in research and development of anticoagulants, introduced heparin treatment for deep venous thrombosis. He also started using descending phlebography for detection of venous reflux and advocated the controversial method of early ambulation after deep venous thrombosis. © 2006 Royal Society of Medicine Press.
