- What are the symptoms?
Varicose veins may ache, and feet and ankles may swell towards the day’s end, especially in hot weather. Varicose veins can get sore and inflamed, causing redness of the skin around them. In some cases patients may develop venous ulcerations.
- What are venous leg ulcers?
Venous ulcers are areas of the lower leg where skin has died and exposed the flesh underneath. They can range from the size of a penny to completely encircling the leg. Most leg ulcers occur when vein disease is left untreated.
- What is Sclerotherapy?
A chemical injection, such as saline, is injected into a vein causing it to “spasm” or close up. Other veins then take over its work.
- Who is at risk for varicose veins?
Conditions contributing to varicose veins include:
- Hormonal changes at menopause.
- Work or hobbies that require extended standing
- Past vein diseases such as thrombophebitis (inflammation of a vein as a blood clot forms).
- Women suffer from varicose veins more than men, and the incidence increases to 50% of people over 50.
