Varicose Veins

WHAT IS CHRONIC VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY?

With CVI, the veins of the legs are unable to return blood properly from the legs to the heart.  Normally, the valves in the veins maintain blood flow in one direction.  In CVI, these valves malfunction, allowing backward flow (venous reflux), leading to the pooling of blood and water in the legs, causing dilated veins known as varicose veins.

WHAT ARE VARICOSE VEINS?

Varicose veins (or spider veins) are engorged, twisted veins that one can see just under the skin.

There are two primary types of vein conditions—both indicate some level of underlying venous insufficiency. Spider veins are tangled groups of tiny blood vessels just under the skin’s surface. Typically, they are red, blue or purple and are clearly visible on the thighs, lower legs and face. Varicose veins tend to be larger in diameter and are visibly bulging or rope-like.
