Chronic Venous Insufficiency is a medical condition in which the veins are unable to pump deoxygenated blood back to the heart. This is caused because the one-way valves that are inside the veins are damaged (incompetent) and this causes venous reflux (blood pooling on the legs instead of returning to the heart) often resulting in chronic swelling of the legs, skin discoloration, Venous Eczema (itching), and Lipodermatosclerosis (thin, shiny, leathery skin).
If Venous Reflux is left untreated, it will cause Venous Ulcers (skin sores) and it can take years for them to heal.
Symptoms can include:
Damaged valves inside the veins
Abnormal leg veins
