About Venus Reflux Disease
Superficial Venous Reflux Treatment in New Braunfels, Texas
Veins carry blood back to the heart. Your legs contain a network of veins. Superficial veins (near the surface of the skin) connect to perforating veins. Perforator veins carry blood from the superficial veins to the deep veins of the thigh and calf. Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return of blood back to the heart.
Venous reflux disease develops when the valves that keep blood flowing from the legs back to the heart become damaged or diseased. This can cause blood to pool in your legs, which can lead to a progression of symptoms.
