Welcome to the Phlebology Clinic! We would like to share important information with you regarding venous insufficiency. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the following content, which will help you understand this condition and effectively manage it:

Venous insufficiency, also known as venous incompetence, is a condition in which the veins do not function properly, leading to inadequate blood transport back to the heart. It can result in the formation of varicose veins, leg swelling, feelings of heaviness and leg pain.

Symptoms of venous insufficiency may include leg swelling, a sensation of heaviness and fatigue, pain, muscle cramps, itchy skin, and the appearance of varicose veins. If you experience these symptoms, it is advisable to consult with a phlebologist, a specialist in vein disorders.

Venous insufficiency can have various causes, including hereditary predisposition, obesity, prolonged standing or sitting, lack of physical activity, pregnancy, smoking, and aging.

To diagnose venous insufficiency, a phlebologist will perform a thorough physical examination and may recommend additional tests such as Doppler ultrasound studies to assess the condition of the blood vessels.

Treatment options for venous insufficiency depend on the severity of the condition. They may include lifestyle changes such as increased physical activity, avoiding prolonged standing or sitting, and maintaining a healthy weight. For advanced cases of venous insufficiency, various procedures can be used, including sclerotherapy, laser treatment of blood vessels, and surgical interventions.

Prevention and leg care play an important role in managing venous insufficiency. Regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding prolonged standing or sitting, wearing appropriate footwear, and using compression stockings are all good preventive measures. Leg care, including regular moisturization of the skin, can help maintain vascular health.
