Veins, arteries and capillaries make up our body’s vascular system. Blood is transported from the heart, a strong dual pump, through the arteries into all parts of our body. This provides the organs and tissue with the oxygen they need. Blood then returns to the heart through our veins. An adequate venous blood flow is important to keep the circulation in balance.
Particularly when we are standing, veins need help to work against gravity. Leg muscles act as an additional pump while venous valves prevent blood from flowing backward in the legs.
What is venous disease?
Venous disease results when the venous blood flow does not work properly. Superficial and deep leg veins are most commonly affected.
Common signs of venous disease
