Understanding Your Veins - Having an understanding of your venous anatomy will aid in your understanding of venous disease and which treatment may be most appropriate for you.

Veins of the lower extremities are divided into three types:

The Deep Veins

The Superficial "Saphenous" Veins

The Perforator Veins

Venous Disease- Located throughout the veins of your legs, venous valves prevent the backward or downward flow of blood. Damaged, these valves cause branch vein varicosities throughout the lower extremities resulting in reflux, or when blood flows down the vein the wrong way. Reflux causes venous hypertension and is the number one cause associated with chronic venous insufficiency, or varicose veins. In many cases, venous insuffiency is the result of over dilation of the venous vessels located in the legs which, if left untreated, eventually results in reflux. Varicose veins are the most common manifestation seen with venous insufficiency and will progressively worsen if left untreated.
