Understanding Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition affecting nearly half of Americans. It is more frequent in women and is often diagnosed later in life. The disease occurs when veins in the leg have difficulty sending blood back toward the heart. This can cause pooling of the blood near the legs.

Common risk factors include obesity, pregnancy, old age, varicose veins, and inactivity. The disease is characterized by swelling and soreness in affected areas. In some cases, those who suffer from the disease may also develop ulcers in the affected areas. Common treatment options include compression stockings and increased activity. Proper treatment of chronic venous insufficiency often results in full recovery with many patients experiencing minimal discomfort or inconvenience.

Symptoms of Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency include:

  • Formation of enlarged varicose veins (which can lead other vein problems)
  • Development of ulcers (sores in the digestive tract) which can cause abdominal pain.
  • Soreness or tiredness in the legs
  • Swelling in the affected areas
  • Itching and dryness in the legs

Treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Because it is not commonly viewed as a serious health risk, chronic venous insufficiency is treatable with compression stockings and increased activity. In some cases, procedures such as vein stripping and radiofrequency ablation are employed. Vein stripping surgery is a procedure in which the vein is exposed, ligated to stop blood flow, and removed. Radiofrequency ablation (RF) uses thermal energy to contract and close the vein.
