Varicose Veins Specialist in Pune

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are enlarged and swollen veins that are prominently visible on the skin surface. These bluish-purple veins usually occur on the legs and feet but can also develop on the arms and face.

Varicose veins occur due to malfunctioning valves that restrict the flow of deoxygenated blood back to the heart. This results in excessive blood pooling and increased pressure in the affected area.

Risk Factors

As per the reports of numerous medical studies, it has been cited that women are more likely to develop varicose veins than their male counterparts. The risk of developing varicose veins also increases with growing age.

People who have a family history of a venous disorder or those who are obese and have a sedentary lifestyle are at a comparatively higher risk. Other risk factors for varicose veins include pregnancy, smoking, hormone therapy, and any medical history of a blood clot.

It has also been noted that people who have a job that requires them to sit or stand for long durations at a stretch have a greater chance of developing varicose veins at a much younger age.

In a few cases, varicose veins do not produce any symptoms. For most other people, varicose veins are accompanied by pain and severe swelling in the affected area. Patients also experience itching and a throbbing sensation along with a feeling of heaviness.

Skin discoloration (venous eczema) is another prevalent sign of varicose veins. Patients also complain of immense pain after sitting or standing for a long time. RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) is also commonly reported in varicose veins patients.

Delay or lack of treatment is known to worsen the symptoms and lead to the formation of difficult-to-heal leg ulcers and chronic venous insufficiency. In some extreme cases, blood clots are likely to develop in the deep veins. This condition is known as Deep Vein Thrombosis. Treatment is essential to prevent other life-threatening medical conditions.
