Types of varicose veins

Chronic venous disease that causes blood to accumulate in the veins of the legs and cause poor circulation

Classification by the form of the disease

  • Congenital predisposition to varicose veins

    Congenital weakness of the venous walls, insufficiency of the valve apparatus of the veins often provoke a pronounced expansion of the veins in adolescence.

  • Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome

    Congenital vascular anomalies, mainly varicose veins and telangiectasias, accompanied by moles on the lower extremities and, often, bone or connective tissue abnormalities.

    Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome is accompanied by red spots on the skin and protruding blood vessels.

  • Superficial vein thrombosis

    One of the complications of varicose veins in the absence of timely treatment. Initially manifests itself as phlebitis, but eventually develops into superficial vein thrombosis.
