Varicose Veins

Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), commonly known as “tired legs”, is a condition that affects between 40% and 60% of women and is related to a disfunction of venous valves.

Blood is pumped by the heart and circulated through the veins throughout the body. Venous valves prevent the backwards flow of blood and assures that circulation be maintained in one direction. 

When there is venous valve disfunction, there are substances released that generate a weakness of vein walls and blood circulation malfunction, triggering the bothering symptoms of tired legs.

What is CVI? Is it the same as Varicose Veins?

CVI is one of more common vascular conditions and affects primarily women and tends to increase with age.

CVI occurs due to the malfunction of the leg vein valves, which are in charge of maintaining the blood flow in a specific direction. When they malfunction, blood starts to pool (collect) in the vein, which is called “stasis” and causing the appearance of spider veins, and if not treated properly, varicose veins.

Varicose Veins are the visible side of CVI and are veins that are permanently dilated and deformed. Other CVI symptoms are swelling, pain, itching, heaviness and cramps.
