Varicose Veins

What Are Varicose Veins

If you’re over 40, you probably see them; those little purple veins that suddenly seem to appear on your legs. Veins are the soft, thin-walled tubes that return blood from the arms and legs to the heart. Because veins work against the force of gravity, they have valves that allow forward blood flow, but not reverse. Varicose veins are enlarged, bulging superficial veins that can be felt beneath the skin, generally larger than 3-mm in diameter. They are usually located on the inside of the calf or thigh and develop due to weakness of the vein wall and loss of valve function. Under the pressure of gravity, they continue to enlarge, and in the course of time, they may become elongated, twisted, pouched and thickened, resulting in a rope-like appearance.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Heredity is the number one contributing factor causing varicose and spider veins. Women are more likely to suffer from abnormal leg veins. Up to 50% of Canadian women may be affected. Hormonal factors, including puberty, pregnancy, and menopause, the use of birth control pills, estrogen, and progesterone, affect the disease. It is very common for pregnant women to develop varicose veins during the first trimester.
