What is Venous Disease?

Vein disease refers to the chronic conditions related to or caused by veins that become diseased or abnormal. Your legs are made up of a network of veins, and healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close. Vein disease develops when the valves that keep blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart become damaged or diseased. This can cause blood to pool in your legs and lead to symptoms such as pain, swelling, leg heaviness and fatigue, skin changes and skin ulcers, and varicose veins.
