Chronic Venous Insufficiency at IVC Interventional and Vein Center

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.


Testing for Vein Disease

To evaluate veins, we use ultrasound. This allows us to view the anatomy of your veins, measuring the direction and speed of your blood flow. With this personalized information, we can develop a treatment plan specifically for you and your individual needs. Learn more.
