Central Florida Cardiology Group - Vein Clinic
Millions of people suffer from varicose veins or a more severe disease called Chronic Venous Insufficiency or CVI. This condition occurs when valves in the veins are not functioning properly, causing difficulty for blood circulation back to the heart from the legs. When this occurs a condition called stasis develops, which is when the blood collects in the veins.
Some symptoms of CVI include:
- Varicose veins
- Aching or pain
- Heaviness or Tiredness
- Open Sores or Ulcers
Chronic Venus Insufficiency (CVI) and varicose veins are more common than you think. More than 30 million Americans have venous reflux or CVI.
Here are risk factors that could contribute to the development of CVI:
- Family history
- Lack of exercise
- Leg injury or trauma
- Prolonged sitting or standing
- Obesity or excess weight
- Current or previous pregnancies
The Central Florida Cardiology Group offer the following treatments to help blood flow through the vein properly and reduce symptoms of Chronic Venous Insufficiency.
