Several venous pathologies can have serious complications. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is an umbrella term containing multiple venous diseases. Venous insufficiency can refer to chronic venous reflux disease and chronic venous hypertension.
Veins transport blood back to the heart after being delivered to different parts of the body, so it’s important to keep these vital pathways healthy. While a lot of focus is on arterial diseases such as carotid artery disease and renal vascular disease, veins can have problems of their own. The Center for Vascular Medicine’s team of experienced doctors and clinical staff are here to help with all forms of vascular disease.
