Chronic Venus insufficiency

Chronic Venus insufficiency


Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition in which the veins in the legs fail to efficiently return blood back to the heart. It is often caused by the malfunctioning of valves within the veins, leading to blood pooling and increased pressure in the lower extremities.

Symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency may include:

  1. Swelling in the legs and ankles.
  2. Pain, aching, or heaviness in the legs.
  3. Itching or irritated skin.
  4. Varicose veins.
  5. Leg cramps or restless legs.
  6. Skin discoloration or ulcers, particularly near the ankles.
