Vein Disease Treatment: Patient Stories

Venous disease is any condition that affects the functioning of our veins, which are an important part of the body’s circulatory system. Veins are flexible, hollow tubes with a series of built-in valves which ensure the blood travels in the right direction, back to the heart. If these valves malfunction, blood can travel in the wrong direction or flow in both directions. This causes blood to inappropriately pool and increase pressure in the veins. Progressive high pressure in the veins of the legs, over time, can lead to significant skin changes and, in advanced stages, can cause leg ulceration(s).
