Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when your leg veins don't allow blood to flow back up to your heart. Incompetent valves in the leg veins lead to blood flow going the wrong direction (refluxing) in the veins. This increased pressure in the legs can start of sequence of complications with dilated veins.
Signs and symptoms may include:
Risk factors of vein disease include:
Vein treatment steps include:
Endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure where a tube (catheter) puts heat into the affected vein. This closes the vein so less blood pools in the leg improving overall blood flow.
Our Wound Healing Center at Johnson Memorial Health has one of the most comprehensive wound care programs available; uniquely integrating the wound care and the treatment of vascular disease which includes all aspects of vein disease.
No referral is needed to begin venous treatment.
Request a Free Vein Reflux Screening
Vein Reflux Screenings are available in the Johnson Memorial Health Wound Healing Center by appointment only and a limited number of screenings are available each month. Each screening takes about 10 minutes. An ultrasound technician will use an ultrasound machine to see beneath the skin in the affected leg or legs to examine valve function, the direction and speed of the blood flow, as well as the size of the vein.
