Understanding vein disease.
Vein disorders range in severity from mild discomfort to rope-like varicose veins running down your legs and are a manifestation of a condition known as venous reflux disease, or venous insufficiency. In venous insufficiency, the tiny valves in the veins in the legs that regulate the flow of blood in a single direction back to the heart have weakened. These damaged valves allow small amounts of blood to seep back down and pool in the veins in the legs. Left untreated, venous reflux can cause more serious problems over time.
