About diseases of the veins

If you suffer from vein problems: venous disease, vascular "stars", varix dilatation or venous leg ulcers, then you are not alone. According to the statistics, 20% of the world population have venous diseases, where 65% - are women and 45% - men.

              Valve dysfunction                                          Healthy valves

In the picture you can see that healthy valves allow blood to move only in one direction. When the valves do not work properly, blood can flow in the opposite direction, creating a voltage and damaging the vessel walls. It leads to varicose veins.

Unfortunately, this disease can not disappear by itself, and with time the situation is only getting worse, complicating the treatment. Folk remedies not treat varicose veins.

What is the cause of vein diseases?

One of the main causes of vein diseases is heredity. Also, problems with blood vessels may get worse during pregnancy. In a high-risk group there are people whose work involves prolonged standing on their feet, and people who are overweight.
But there is good news. Modern technologies allow to treat vein diseases using safe and effective techniques without surgical intervention. Remember that no matter what the cause of varicose veins is, the specialists of vascular surgery clinic will do everything to solve this problem.

When should I see a doctor?

Very often, venous diseases can be seen on the surface of the skin, but in some cases they can not. Therefore, you should pay attention to a number of symptoms that may indicate the presence of the disease:

  •  Pain
  •  Heaviness
  •  Pulsation
  •  Swelling
  •  Itching and burning
  •  Anxiety
  •  Fatigue
  •  Spasms and convulsions

In most cases, diseases of veins is what  we can see on the surface of the skin, but it often does not show the situation under the skin. For example, a small vascular "star" can only be the "top of the iceberg" of a large vein in the leg. Therefore it is very important to get an expert advice and to have ultrasound diagnostics (duplex scanning of the veins).

Among vascular diseases the most common ones are varicose veins, vascular "stars", thrombosis of superficial and deep veins. Let's talk more about these diseases and how they are treated.

Most people know very  well how enlarged blue or red varicose veins look like . However, sometimes the disease is not be seen on the skin surface, and we can not see it without a special diagnostic equipment. Most often this disease affects people with a family history of varicose veins. Pregnant women and patients whose job is requires prolonged standing on his feet (nurses, teachers, etc.), are also subjected to this disease.

Varicose veins are caused by a violation of the valves inside the veins, leading to the failure of blood circulation, allowing blood to move in both directions. The force of gravity causes blood to collect in the veins, increasing and deforming them - varicose veins look bulging and overflowing.

In addition to not aesthetically acceptable appearance, varicose veins has a number of side effects: pain in the legs, fatigue, itching and burning, swelling, cramps, throbbing. And over the time, the state of the vessels is only getting worse and can lead not only to operations on the veins, but also to the development of severe complications like thrombophlebitis, thrombosis, trophic ulcers.

Vascular "stars"

Vascular "stars" (or vascular grid on legs) are very thin veins that are close to the skin surface. They look like the marble surface or similar to the red, blue or green gossamer just under the skin. Vascular "stars" are caused by the accumulation and stagnation of blood, they are very small varicose veins, and usually do not cause discomfort. But very often the vascular "stars" are the continuation of a large varicose vein, which is located deep under the skin and causes suffering. Therefore, the  treatment of vascular "stars" is held not only to correct a cosmetic defect, but also for therapeutic purposes.

The increase of the size of veins, swelling, redness, pain in the leg may indicate the possibility of serious health problems such as venous thrombosis. It may involve saphenous veins, causing thrombophlebitis. If the blood clots are located in the deep veins, it is called deep veins thrombosis.

Many people with varicose veins suffer from pain, swelling, heaviness and fatigue in the legs. In some cases, the veins in the legs can become inflamed and even more painful - it is a reason to suspect the formation of blood clots.
