Vein Diseases

No More Pain

What Are Veins?

Veins are blood vessels with a set of valves that keep blood flowing in the body in only one direction. The heart pumps the oxygen-rich blood to the tissues of the body through the arteries to feed all parts of the body. Then the veins return the blood loaded with carbon dioxide and waste cells again to the heart to be loaded again with oxygen and nutrients to be distributed again to all the organs and cells of the body and thus the blood circulation is completed.

The veins located near the surface of the skin are called superficial veins, and the veins in the muscles of the arms and legs are called deep veins.

Veins play a vital role in the body, especially in the circulatory system, as they are responsible for transporting blood from different parts of the body to the heart. However, as people age, some problems can develop in the veins and cause a variety of diseases.

Early symptoms may seem minor. However; It can become more serious and even life-threatening if not treated, for this reason it is important to be aware of venous diseases and to consult a specialist as soon as any symptoms of a problem occur in the veins.

Why Vein Diseases Happen?

There are a lot of reasons that might cause vein diseases including:
  • Gender: Females are more susceptible than men
  • Age: The incidence of vein diseases increases with aging
  • Family history: Vein diseases may often be hereditary
  • Lifestyle or occupation: Jobs require standing or sitting for long periods increases the risk
  • Smoking: it leads to harmful changes in blood vessels
  • Obesity: pressure on leg veins can cause problems
  • Pregnancy: when pressures on veins increase with weight gain, higher chances of vein disease develop

How Vein Diseases Develop?

Healthy veins have valves that allow blood to flow towards the heart and then valves close to prevent the flow in the opposite direction. When standing, the blood in the veins of the legs must flow upwards against gravity.

In people with varicose veins, these valves can be damaged and allow blood to leak back in the wrong direction and cause what is called venous reflux. This causes stretching of leg veins and pooling of blood where veins become swollen and twisted causing disfigurement and bad appearance of the legs. And also stagnation of blood in the veins can cause blood clots.

Varicose veins, if left untreated, may worsen causing pain and swelling and also  can result in inflammation, itchy sensation and skin thickening with formation of scarred tissue, darkening of skin, and possible ulcer formation which are very difficult to heal. Unfortunately, in some cases over time complications can occur such as bleeding and clots that form inside the main veins and can extend into the deep veins.
