Venous Insufficiency – Two Limbs
Varicose Vein/Venous Insufficiency – Two Limb
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) or Venous Insufficiency is a prevalent condition that affects the veins in the legs. It occurs when the one-way valves within the veins become weakened or damaged, disrupting the efficient flow of blood back to the heart. Several factors contribute to the development of CVI, including age, family history, obesity, pregnancy, and prolonged periods of sitting or standing. Additional risk factors include a history of blood clots, leg injuries, smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle. If you are experiencing symptoms of venous insufficiency, it’s crucial to consult your doctor for a comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment plan. Timely diagnosis and treatment are essential for effective CVI management. At our London ultrasound clinic, we offer venous insufficiency ultrasound scans to assist in the diagnosis and monitoring of this condition.
Common Symptoms of CVI:
The symptoms of CVI can vary among individuals but often include:
- Swelling in the lower legs and ankles.
- Leg pain or aching.
- The presence of varicose veins.
- Changes in skin texture or color around the affected area.
- Skin ulcers or open sores, particularly in advanced cases.
Left untreated, CVI can lead to more severe complications, including deep vein thrombosis, extensive skin damage, and venous ulcers. Early detection and appropriate management are essential to mitigate these risks.
