Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)

CVI is a progressive medical condition in which the valves in the veins that carry blood from the legs to the heart no longer function, causing blood to pool in the legs, and the veins to swell and stretch. Failure of the valves in leg veins to hold blood against gravity leads to sluggish movement of blood out of the veins, resulting in swollen legs.

An estimated 40 percent of people in the United States have CVI. It occurs more frequently in people over age 50, and more often in women than in men.

Common Signs and Symptoms of CVI

  • Leg heaviness and fatigue
  • Leg or ankle swelling
  • Leg pain, aching, or cramping
  • Varicose veins
  • Skin changes or rashes
  • Ulcers, open wounds or sores

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are enlarged (bulging) veins that can be blue, red, or flesh colored. They are often raised above the skin and look like twisted, bulging cords. Varicose veins may form whenever blood pressure increases inside your veins. This can happen because of pregnancy, constipation, a tumor, or overweight and obesity. We offer minimally invasive varicose veins treatment options.

Spider Veins

Spider veins, which often cover the legs, are damaged veins that appear to be similar to varicose veins, only thinner. Although spider veins may be associated with chronic venous insufficiency, they are considered cosmetic, and treatment is considered elective. Spider veins can be blue, purple, or red and may appear in the form of thin lines, webs, or branches. People sometimes also refer to them as thread veins.

CVI Can Affect Anyone

Risk factors for developing vein disease include:
  • Heredity
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Occupation that requires prolonged standing
  • Obesity
  • Current or previous pregnancies
  • Smoking

Screening for CVI

Screening for CVI is done through a simple, noninvasive ultrasound test which takes about 45 minutes to perform. After reviewing the ultrasound, your vein specialist will discuss treatment options and help you identify the best fit for your lifestyle.

Treatment Options for CVI

There are a number of minimally invasive treatment options for CVI that are covered by insurance plans:
  • Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy
    Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy involves using an ultrasound guided needle and injecting medication into the vein to chemically ablate (shut down) the vein.
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy
    Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed using multiple 2-3 mm microincisions through which vein segments are removed using a tiny hook.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
    RFA is a minimally invasive treatment that involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube called a catheter into a diseased vein to seal it shut using heat. This is our main modality of treatment for venous insufficiency.

After completing your vein treatments, we can provide further treatments like skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, and laser therapy to promote healthier and younger looking skin.
