Understanding Varicose Veins:
A Brief Guide


Varicose veins are dilated, often tortuous veins that can appear anywhere in the body and at the surface of the skin – most commonly found on the lower extremities.

Varicose veins can occur due to numerous factors including genetics, hormonal influences, pregnancies, prolonged standing/sitting, obesity, injury and more significantly, an underlying issue with lower extremity superficial vein valve incompetence.
