Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency is a condition that develops over several years, due to faulty valves in the veins. Early symptoms include ankle and leg swelling. If not treated, capillaries in the tissue surrounding diseased veins may burst, causing a reddish-brown skin discoloration. In addition, non-healing sores called venous stasis ulcerations may appear.
There are several minimally invasive outpatient treatment options with a high success rate of treating chronic venous insufficiency.
