What is Venous Disease?
When referring to venous disease, that includes all conditions related to or caused by veins that become diseased or abnormal. These conditions include: varicose veins, spider veins, leg skin changes, Chronic Venous Insufficiency, Venous Stasis Ulcers, Phlebitis, and Vascular/Venous malformations. Mild venous disease is not usually considered a medical problem but if left untreated it can lead to crippling Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) or other venous complications. Risk factors for venous disease include obesity, pregnancy, family history, trauma, surgery, some medications, sedimentary lifestyle or if you have a history of clots.
Ideally, your veins and arteries should carry oxygen rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body then back to your heart again. When the walls of your veins become stretched or injured, which can be caused by any of the risk factors listed above, your blood flow beings to move backward causing high pressure that can lead to swelling, bulging or give your veins a rope-like appearance. If not treated, these abnormal veins can lead to venous diseases or CVI. Chronic Venous Insufficiency happens when the diseased veins begin pooling blood, which can be caused from leaking varicose veins, repeated obstruction in the veins (thrombosis) or chronic inflammation of the veins (phlebitis). In severe cases of CVI, the blood pooling can lead to leg ulcers known as venous stasis ulcers. These ulcers can be painful and treatment can become frustrating so it is important to treat the problematic veins as soon as possible.
