Chronic Venous Insufficiency


Chronic Venous Insufficiency develops when the valves stop working properly. This malfunction, causes the blood to flow backward (i.e. reflux) and pool in the lower leg veins. If chronic venous insufficiency is left untreated, symptoms can develop and worsen over time.

Chronic venous insufficiency may cause the following symptoms in your legs:

  • Leg heaviness and fatigue
  • Leg pain, aching or cramping – particularly towards the end of the day
  • Varicose veins
  • Leg or ankle swelling
  • Burning or itching of the skin
  • Restless legs
  • Discoloration of the skin at calf and ankle level
  • Leg ulcers, open wounds or sores
