Treating varicose veins
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins or varices are among the most common conditions associated with venous disease of the legs. Varicose veins may be either primary or secondary: the onset of primary varicose veins is often hereditary or associated with gender, pregnancy and old age, while secondary varicose veins are caused by obstruction of a deep vein. This condition is most common in Europe and North America, where it affects up to 40% of the adult population, predominantly women.
As well as being an aesthetic ailment, varicose veins can also cause other discomforting symptoms, including swollen/tired legs and ankles, muscle cramps, pins and needles in the legs, a constant cold sensation and venule, capillary and arteriola dilation (known as telangiectasias), visible through the skin.
