What is Vein Disease?

vein surgery

Affecting more than 30 million people in the United States, vein disease is more common in women than men. Healthy veins rely on elasticity to transport blood back to the heart, but with age, lack of exercise and other risk factors, those veins are unable to function properly. As a result, blood collects in certain areas resulting in swollen legs, varicose veins or bulging veins which can be unsightly and painful.

Both men and women are at risk for developing vein disease. For women, changes in progesterone and estrogen levels, particularly during pregnancy and menopause, can contribute to vein disease. For both women and men, other factors include aging, obesity and standing occupations.

Most patients with varicose veins or bulging veins in the legs may experience a multitude of symptoms, including, but not limited to, discoloration and bulging of the vein, pain and aching in the legs, and swelling. If left untreated, vein disease may lead to ulceration and blood clots.

If you experience any of these symptoms, please ask one of our Board Certified Cardiologists about vein treatment.
