Kellie Savage, PA in the Vascular Surgery department at Henry Ford Health System discusses the symptoms, causes and treatment options for chronic venous insufficiency.
Chronic Venous Insufficiency
If you have leg pain, bulging veins and swelling, you could have chronic venous insufficiency, a condition affecting blood flow from leg veins to the heart. The condition often develops after a blood clot known as a deep vein thrombosis. With effective treatment, you can feel better and return to a healthy, active life.
