Varicose veins are permanently dilated veins. Hereditary factors, pregnancy, severe trauma to the legs, long periods of standing or even heat and tight clothing that affects blood circulation, all cause patients to be predisposed to the condition.
Varicose veins are not only of cosmetic importance – they can bleed, cause pain, leg swelling, inflammation, skin hardening and breaks leading to a chronic wound called venous leg ulcer. Moreover, varicose veins, especially in the setting of excess body weight and obesity, increase the risk for venous thromboembolism (blood clots) which may be fatal.
