Floreal, I am sure by now you have resolved your problem. However, I was interested in researching this term... not an easy task, but this is what I was able to determine:

high tie is the same as "high ligation" -- it means that the ligate the vein at the upper/top section to prevent the blood from flowing in the wrong direction.

See if you can make some sense of all these documents.

Material and Method: Fifty-five (27 male, 28 female, age 20-76, median 43) consecutive patients recruited from the varicose vein outpatient clinic of Ealing Hospital, were randomly allocated to undergo ultrasound guided sclerotherapy with high ligation under local anaesthesia (group 1) or high tie, stripping and multiple avulsions under general anaesthesia (group 2).
Conclusion: There are significant early advantages in patients treated with ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and adjuvant high ligation compared to traditional high ligation, stripping and multiple avulsions.

high tie of long saphenous veins
The long saphenous vein is ligated at its origin flush with the femoral vein and all its tributaries are tied off. http://www.gpnotebook.co.uk/cache/-1717960674.htm
Traditional High Tie, LSV strip and avulsions for Varicose veins

If you would like to see Mr Braithwaite as a Private Patient for Traditional or other varicose vein treatment, please contact him at either the
Park Hospital or Nottingham Nuffield.

What happens when I have a traditional 'high tie' operation?
This is the most frequently performed operation in the NHS. Until the introduction of new techniques, this is the way that most patients have had their varicose veins treated.
The operation is normally done when you are asleep with a General Anaesthetic or under spinal or epidural anaesthetic (awake but numb from the waist downwards).
The technique used by Mr Braithwaite involves a cut between 2 and 5cm long in the crease of the groin. This leaves an almost invisible scar in the crease at the top of the thigh. The varicose vein in the groin is tied off to prevent blood running in the wrong direction in the leg. The long saphenous vein (the main vein causing the varicose veins) is then removed using a special device - stripping the vein. Some techniques use an olive-like device that helps to strip the vein out. Mr Braithwaite thinks this method increases the chances of nerve damage. He uses a method that turns the vein inside out. The aim is to remove the vein without damaging the saphenous nerve.
The stripped vein is usually removed through a 0.5cm cut around the knee area on the inside of the thigh or calf. The cut is made in one of the creases of the skin to minimise the effect of scarring.
All the wounds are closed with a dissolving (absorbable) stitch that does not need to be removed.
Local anaesthetic is put into the cuts so that there is very little pain when you wake up.
