More than 30 million Americans suffer from venous disease, including varicose veins and a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), yet only 1.9 million seek treatment each year. If left untreated, varicose veins can progress to become CVI with symptoms that worsen over time. Fortunately, by diagnosing and treating varicose veins you can halt the progression of the disease. Varicose veins can be detected and treated by a vein specialist who can also perform a simple ultrasound to diagnose CVI.
