Chronic Venous Insufficiency
What is Chronic Venous Insufficiency?
Chronic venous insufficiency is a common condition that occurs due to long-lasting high blood pressure in the veins. This high blood pressure makes it difficult for blood to return to the heart from the legs, causing blood to pool in the legs, which can be the cause of varicose veins, swelling, or skin color changes on the affected part of the leg.
If you notice any of these signs, you might need chronic venous insufficiency treatment from our Sugar Land vein center.
Symptoms of Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency is a general term that includes a number of different changes that can occur in the lower half of the leg and around the ankle. The most common changes are:
- Heaviness, swelling, and pain in the affected leg
- Thickening in the tissues underneath the skin
- An open sore or ulcer
- Enlarged and twisted veins close to the skin’s surface
