We provide assistance with chronic venous insufficiency.
You may consider being evaluated if you experience:
Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and twisting veins often appearing blue or dark purple. They occur when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction or to pool.
Bulging Veins (Perforator)
Perforator veins are deeper veins that can affect the more superficial veins when not functioning properly. This can cause edema, skin discoloration, rashes and skin ulcers in the immediate area.
Leg swelling from varicose veins can vary from mild swelling at the ankles to full-blown edema, which can make it difficult to put on shoes. When a result of vein leakage, swelling typically worsens as the day progresses and settles in the ankles.
Leaking varicose veins cause blood to pool and waste products to accumulate in the leg. Due to the buildup of pressure and fluid in the leg, persons with vein problems can experience leg aching, heaviness and fatigue of the leg, which typically worsens as the day progresses.
Aching, Burning, Throbbing Legs
Painful leg cramps and uncomfortable, restless legs can be related to vein disease. Many times these dull, achy sensations are really a sign of damaged veins. Many patients that have veins treated experience improvement with Restless Leg Syndrome.
Leg ulcers are a miserable complication of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), affecting up to a third of patients with CVI. Swelling, rashes and brown discoloration develop due to poor return of blood back to the heart. Toxins accumulate and ultimately the skin will break down.
