Bay Vein Explains Venous Disease & What You Need to Know

bay vein explains venous disease

More than 30 million people suffer from painful legs, varicose veins, or a more serious form of vein (venous) disease called Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). Screening, diagnosis and treatment for CVI is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare.

Do you suffer from …

  • Varicose veins
  • Leg or ankle swelling, worse at the end of the day
  • Leg pain, aching, or cramping
  • Leg heaviness and fatigue
  • Restless legs
  • Burning or itching of the skin
  • Skin color and/or texture changes
  • Lower leg ulcers

If you said yes you may have Venous Disease, so what does that mean?

Venous disease often occurs when the valves in the primary leg veins fail. Healthy valves assist in pushing blood back up to the heart where it can be re-oxygenated and recirculated. But when venous valves become incompetent, blood cannot return to the heart and gravity causes it to pool in the legs. This is called Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), and is often accompanied by varicose veins, pain, swelling, and more severe leg problems.
