Venous Insufficiency Treatment Options

Venous Insufficiency refers to a series of changes, which occur in one’s legs when the veins in those legs do not function properly. Veins act as conduits which carry blood from the legs to the heart. This is achieved by a series of valves on the vein’s inner wall which, like locks in a shipping canal, open to permit the flow of blood toward the heart but close to prohibit the flow of blood away from the heart.

In certain conditions, such as with varicose veins, or veins which have had blood clots, these valves do not close properly, leaving a gap between them and thus they are unable to prevent the backward flow of blood away from the heart (hence the name venous insufficiency), i.e. veins which do not function properly.
