Facts About Venous Disease
Venous Disease Affects up to
of the adult population worldwide
Our vascular system contains valves that prevent the blood from flowing backwards. When these valves don’t work properly, circulation problems occur that can eventually lead to venous disease.
Complications of Venous Disease
Spider Veins: Small veins visible through the skin of your legs that appear red of blue.
Varicose Veins: Enlarged veins, clearly visible under your skin, and twisted or bulging. Usually painless, sometimes they can hurt, itch, or burn. They are caused by the pooling of blood in a damaged vein.
Swollen Legs: Edema (swollen legs) is defined as a significant increase in the volume of fluid in the skin. Venous edema usually occurs in the ankle region, but it may extend to the leg and foot.
Leg Ulcer: Venous ulcers are unhealed sort or open wounds on the legs. They are a severe consequence of venous disease.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): DVT is a serious condition in which a blood clot forms in the deep veins of the leg that block the blood flow. As a consequence, the clot can circulate and cause a pulmonary embolism.
