Venous Disease

Venous disease refers to a condition that affects the veins in the body, which are responsible for carrying blood back to the heart. The most common type of venous disease is varicose veins, which are swollen, twisted veins that are visible just under the surface of the skin.

Varicose veins occur when the valves in the veins that regulate blood flow become weakened or damaged. This causes blood to pool in the veins, leading to swelling and bulging. Varicose veins are most commonly found in the legs.

Varicose Veins Symptoms

Varicose veins can cause a range of symptoms, including aching, heaviness, and swelling in the legs. They can also cause skin changes, such as discoloration, itching, and ulceration. In some cases, varicose veins may be a sign of a more serious condition, such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a blood clot in a vein.

Varicose Veins Causes & Treatment Options

Risk factors for varicose veins include age, family history, pregnancy, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle.

The most appropriate treatment option for varicose veins will depend on the severity of the condition and individual patient needs. It is important to consult with a medical professional to determine the best course of treatment. Early treatment can help prevent complications and improve outcomes, so it is important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing symptoms of varicose veins.
