What is Vein Disease?
Your veins are a vital part of maintaining the proper circulation of blood to every area of your body and back to your heart. Any degree of venous malfunctioning that results in either cosmetic or medical problems is considered vein disease. Unfortunately, malfunctioning of the veins becomes more and more common with age. In fact, one in every three Americans that are over the age of 45 has some type of vein disease.
These diseases occur on a spectrum, ranging anywhere from spider veins to severe blockage that can lead to ulcerations. Among vein disease, varicose vein disease is particularly common. These veins occur when poorly functioning valves are unable to efficiently transport blood to the heart. As blood begins to pool in the legs, the veins there begin to become twisted, or varicose. Varicose veins can also be caused by a blockage of a vein, referred to as deep vein thrombosis. While varicose veins usually are only present as an aesthetic concern, they can become medically dangerous if left untreated.
