Complications of varicose veins

If you do not start treatment on time, varicose veins will progress and can provoke dangerous complications.

Deep venous insufficiency

A pathological condition that develops with a violation of the venous outflow from the lower extremities to the heart through deep veins located in the muscles.

Deep vein thrombosis

A complication that occurs due to the formation of blood clots in deep veins. When venous blood, due to prolonged lack of leg movement, cannot flow "normally" towards the heart, blood flow stagnates, which can lead to the formation of a blood clot that blocks the blood vessel.

Deep vein thrombosis causes by
  • Immobility for a long time
  • Congenital factors
  • Taking oral contraceptives
  • Exacerbation of chronic venous disease

※ Concave swelling of the limb : manifested when pressed with a finger and released - the pressure zone does not straighten

Deep vein thrombosis symptoms
  • Severe edema
  • Leg pain
  • Protruding blood vessels
  • Legs temperature is higher than general body temperature
  • Skin discoloration

Pulmonary embolism

If a blood clot that comes off in a deep vein blocks an artery going to the lungs, the lungs will not be able to function properly and supply the body with oxygen sufficiently.
This causes breathing difficulties and chest pain. Pulmonary embolism is a very dangerous complication, as there are cases of sudden death without visible characteristic prerequisites.
