Varicose Veins: More Than Just A Cosmetic Issue?

Varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency are common medical conditions of our venous system. Chronic venous insufficiency refers to improper functioning of the deep venous valves in the leg, causing swelling and skin changes. It may occur concurrently with varicose veins – enlarged and twisted superficial veins, commonly seen on the lower leg.
