WHAT ARE VARICOSE VEINS AND WHY ARE THEY FORMED
Varicose veins are veins that have dilated. They are veins that have withstood a pressure greater than normal for a while and are progressively transformed: their diameter increases, they stretch out and become tortuous.
These changes cause the blood that travels through these veins to progressively decreases its speed in its course towards the heart, and, on many occasions, the blood’s direction is reversed. In the lower limbs, during the standing position is when the veins support the greatest pressure, and that is why varicose veins are much more frequent in these areas than in the rest of the body.
There is also a genetic component, inherent to each patient, that determines the elasticity of the vein wall thus making certain people more prone than others to suffer these
