April 23, 2018 -- More than 30 million Americans suffer from varicose veins, or the more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous
insufficiency (CVI), yet the majority remains undiagnosed and untreated.
Varicose veins can lead to uncomfortable symptoms - including leg pain, discoloration, cramping, achiness, heaviness, swelling or restless leg feeling at night.
The JAMA study found a less clear potential association with pulmonary embolism (PE), and peripheral artery disease (PAD). Research will study further to determine whether the association with DVT is causal.
