Chronic Venous Insufficiency


What is Chronic Venous Insufficiency?

Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when your leg veins don’t allow blood to flow back up to your heart. Normally, the valves in your veins make sure that blood flows toward your heart. But when these valves don’t work well, blood can also flow backwards. This can cause blood to collect (pool) in your legs.

If this condition is not treated, you may have:

  • Pain

  • Swelling

  • Cramps

  • Skin changes

  • Varicose veins

  • Leg ulcers


Chronic venous insufficiency is not a serious health threat. But it can be painful and disabling.
