• Overview

    Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins often seen in the legs. Resulting from weakened valves and increased pressure, they hinder blood flow, leading to swelling and discomfort. Common causes include genetics, prolonged standing, or pregnancy. While often benign, they can cause pain and cosmetic concerns. Treatment options range from lifestyle changes and compression stockings to advanced interventions like Laser, Glue, and Foam Sclerotherapy. These procedures aim to close or remove affected veins, redirecting blood flow. Seeking medical advice is crucial for personalized management, ensuring relief and preventing complications associated with varicose veins.

Varicose Veins: Understanding Causes, Risks, and Complications

From Valves to Risks: Delving into the Vein Dynamics

  • Weak valves in veins lead to varicose vein development
  • Muscular leg contractions and elastic vein walls aid blood flow
  • Valves open to let blood flow, close to prevent backward flow
  • Risk factors include age, sex, pregnancy, family history, obesity
  • Aging causes valve wear, allowing blood to pool in veins
  • Hormonal changes in women increase varicose vein risk
  • Pregnancy enlarges leg veins due to increased blood volume
  • Family history increases the likelihood of varicose veins
  • Obesity and prolonged sitting can add pressure to veins
  • Complications may include ulcers, blood clots, and bleeding
