Treatment for varices
What are varices?
Varices (also known as varicose veins) are one of the most common conditions associated with venous disease of the legs. They are abnormal, diseased and saccular swollen veins that predominantly affect the lower limbs, but may also manifest in other areas. Varices is a condition that is very common in North America and Europe (affecting up to 40% of the adult population), which predominantly afflicts women.
Varices are usually tortuous and are regarded as a genuine aesthetic defect and a cause of embarrassment by many patients. As well as venous insufficiency, which is the main cause of varices, numerous factors can trigger the condition, including blood clots in the deep veins, general compression of the blood vessels, a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, muscle pump failure and pregnancy.
As well as being an aesthetic ailment, it is important to note that varices can also cause other discomforting symptoms, including swollen ankles, swollen/tired legs, pins and needles in the legs, muscle cramps, a constant cold sensation and telangiectasias (harmless dilation of the venules, capillaries and arteriolae), visible through the skin.
