What to know about venous insufficiency.
Venous insufficiency is a prevalent but preventable condition that occurs when blood flow from the leg veins to the heart is reduced. In healthy veins, one-way valves keep blood flowing toward the heart, despite gravity's force. However, when these valves weaken, they cannot close correctly, and blood leaks backward. This condition is known as reflux.
Over time, veins that have lost their valve effectiveness become elongated, rope-like, bulged, and thickened, resulting in the appearance of varicose veins. Varicose veins are a common symptom of venous insufficiency, and they can cause discomfort, pain, and other complications if left untreated.
