Identify Common Issues

Common findings of venous insufficiency include the development of spider veins, varicose veins, swelling, skin discoloration, scarring and in end-stage disease, venous stasis ulceration.

  • Spider Veins

    When backed-up blood makes the veins bigger, they can become varicose. Spider veins can be caused by the backup of blood. They can also be caused by hormone changes, exposure to the sun, and injuries.

  • Varicose Veins

    Varicose veins are most often swollen, gnarled veins that most frequently occur in the legs, ankles and feet. They are produced by a condition known as venous insufficiency or venous reflux, in which blood circulating through the lower limbs does not properly return to the heart but instead pools up in the distended veins.

  • Pain, swelling and heaviness.

    Edema and swollen ankles are some progressive states of venous insufficiency and occur as the result of venous hypertension forcing fluid into the lymphatic and interstitial spaces.

    Risk factors include gender, age, pregnancy, obesity, a family history of varicose veins, sedentary occupation, or history of blood clot. Varicose veins never go away without treatment and frequently progress and worsen over time.

  • Discoloration of Skin

    Discoloration of the skin is a result of pooling of blood in the venous system leading to breakdown of red blood cells and staining of the skin by iron deposition.

  • Venous Stasis Ulcer

    Venous ulcers indicate the most severe forms of venous insufficiency. They typically involve both the deep (including perforators) and superficial vein systems. Extreme reflux and venous hypertension result in changes in the microcirculation of the skin, eventually leading to severe ulceration.
