Varicose Vein Disease Facts
According to the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, it is estimated that more than 25 million Americans suffer from varicose veins Additionally, heredity has been found to be the primary cause of vein disease. Therefore if a family member has had issues with varicose veins or spider veins, unfortunately, others within the same family will have a higher prevalence of the presence of varicose and spider veins. Another important fact regarding varicose vein disease is that from a symptom perspective, larger varicose veins will often produce fewer symptoms than smaller varicose veins.
Given the prevalence of venous disease, it is fair to say that varicose veins and spider veins are very common and research has shown that they increase with age and are present in over half the population by the age of 65. Venous insufficiency is the most common type of vein disease and spider veins and varicose veins are the most common manifestation of venous insufficiency.
The mostly people with varicose veins manage by using simple conventional treatment actions. Varicose veins are not a disease in themselves although they can cause daily pain and worry. People with this trouble should consult their general practitioner to talk about whether treatment is necessary.
Dr. Orcutt provides treatment with the goal of correcting the underlying defect and closing down portions of reflux that prevents venous blood from returning to the central circulation. By doing so, the subjective symptoms of the patient, either minor or severe, are removed.
