Venous diseases


Varicose veins

Varicose veins

represent enlargement, wrapping or elongation of the vein, which causes a number of difficulties. Any superficial vein can become enlarged, but the most commonly affected veins are those in your legs.


Deep vein thrombosis

occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body, usually in your legs. Deep vein thrombosis can cause leg pain or swelling.

Chronic venous insufficiency

is a condition that occurs when the venous wall and/or valves in the veins of the legs do not work effectively, making it difficult for blood to return to the heart from the legs.

is an inflammatory process that causes a blood clot to form and block one or more veins, usually in your legs. The affected vein may be close to the surface of your skin


Postphlebitic syndrome

is a complication that occurs as a result of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The veins in our arms and legs have small valves inside that ensure blood flows properly back to the heart.


Venous wounds

also called stasis, insufficiency or varicose ulcers, are the result of malfunctioning venous valves, which leads to an increase in pressure in the veins. They usually appear along the leg.
