Varicose veins

Varicose veins are a medical problem that results from a conditions called venous insufficiency. The cause of venous insufficiency is the failure of the one way valves in the leg veins. These valves are supposed to direct blood flow back toward the heart but when they are broken or deficient, they allow blood to fall back down the vein simply by gravity. This causes the vein to dilate, strech and often bulge on the surface of the leg. Even when venous insufficiency has not progressed to the point of causing large varicose veins, it can still be responsible for smaller veins on the legs which are often almost impossible to treat effectively until the underlying venous insufficiency is corrected.

Varicose veins appears as large, ropy and swollen veins on the legs. They are often bluish or purple in color. For many people varicose veins are more than just a cosmetic problem. They can cause the leg to hurt or to feel tired. The condition can lead to complications such a phlebitis (clots and inflammations) or skin changes and in extreme cases, skin ulceration.
