Venous Disease

Venous disease is a general term used to refer to any condition related to or caused by diseased or abnormal veins. It’s relatively common in the United States, affecting about 15% of the adult population. Often mild venous disease is not something that needs to be treated, but as venous disease worsens problems can arise.

When you’re suffering from venous disease, the Vein Clinic at Weiss Memorial Hospital offers individually tailored treatment options to fit your needs. Our team of vascular surgeons offers non-surgical, minimally invasive and conventional surgical options to treat venous disease, including varicose vein treatment.

Some of the most common venous diseases include:

  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Leg skin changes
  • Leg swelling and leg pain
  • Leg ulcers
  • Phlebitis
  • Reticular veins
  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins

Risk Factors

Venous disease can be caused by a number of factors including:

  • Family history
  • Illness
  • Lifestyle
  • Medications
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Prolonged standing
  • Prior history of blood clot formation in the veins
