Vein Conditions Diagnosis and Treatments
Millions of patients suffer from cosmetically disfiguring leg veins and symptomatic venous disorders. About 50-55% of women and 40-45% of men in the United States suffer from some type of vein problem.
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a progressive medical condition that worsens over time and affects the veins and vessels in the leg that carry oxygen-poor blood back toward the heart. Varicose veins, which are enlarged veins in the leg that appear like twisted, bulging cords, can progress to CVI if they remain untreated. Healthy leg veins are designed to allow blood to flow against gravity from the legs back up toward the heart.
