Varicose Veins

Overview

  • Varicose veins represent venous valvular insufficiency. They are relatively benign, though may lead to aesthetic issues, chronic pain, ulcers, dermatoses, bleeding or clot formation.

    • Dilated, tortuous superficial veins within the legs. Erythema and tenderness may indicate clot formation (superficial thrombophlebitis).
