What Is Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)?
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) describes the disease characterized by improperly functioning vein valves. To understand vein disease, we must first understand how healthy veins work. All veins that function properly with healthy valves allow blood to move toward the heart while standing and sitting. When functioning correctly, the valves inside veins will prevent blood from flowing backward and causing pressure and the pooling of blood in the lower leg. The pull of gravity is most significant at the lower part of the leg.
So, what happens if those valves begin not closing correctly? As you can imagine, when those valves are not working properly, there can be a pooling of blood in the lower leg, causing the veins of the legs to enlarge and press against nerves near the skin and causing the sensation of pain. When the veins become engorged, you may experience swelling, redness, itching, and dry skin. These are symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). If you do not treat these symptoms, they may become severe, and ulcers (open areas) can begin to form.
Who Gets Chronic Venous Insufficiency?
Almost anyone can develop CVI if the vein valves begin not working correctly. Some people, however, are predisposed to develop this condition. The most common cause of chronic venous insufficiency is blood clots that form in the deep veins, causing damage to the valves.
