What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and tortuous.
Veins have leaflet valves to prevent blood from flowing backwards (retrograde). Leg muscles pump the veins to return blood to the heart, against the effects of gravity. When veins become varicose, the leaflets of the valves no longer meet properly, and the valves do not work. This allows blood to flow backwards and they enlarge even more.
Varicose veins are most commonly in the superficial veins of the legs, which are subject to high pressure when standing.
