What are Varicose veins?
Varicose veins are abnormal veins that become large and tortuous. As a result, varicose veins bulge out and can be seen through the skin. They appear as rope-like structures protruding out from the skin and can occur throughout the legs and ankles. Varicose veins occur due to a disease called "venous reflux." Healthy veins have tiny leaflets inside of them called valves. They allow blood to flow in one direction from the ankles towards the heart. When valves do not work, blood backs up in the legs and causes increased pressure in them. This causes the veins to enlarge and causes symptoms such as pain, heaviness, cramping, itching and burning of the skin. In advanced cases, this can lead to skin pigmentation, ulceration and bleeding.
