What is Venous Reflux?
Venous reflux disease, also known as venous insufficiency, is a medical condition affecting the circulation of blood in the lower extremities. The valves that normally help blood back up towards the heart are no longer working, this causes blood to pool up in the leg veins that produces varicose dilated veins.
Venous reflux disease commonly produces the abnormally swollen and discolored superficial leg veins that affect more than 25 million Americans. These veins can range from small, thin purple lines just under the skin (known as "spider veins") to thick, bulging veins that can protrude well beyond the skin surface. In any form, varicose veins serve as indicators of venous reflux, a progressive disease that can cause significant circulatory problems as it worsens.
