Introduction

Venous diseases occur when your veins get damaged. Veins are blood vessels that carry deoxygenated blood from all parts of your body to your heart for oxygenation. When the walls of your veins get damaged due to various causes like injury, trauma, needles, and so on, there is a backflow of blood in your veins. This causes a pressure buildup which can lead to clot formation, and multiple diseases termed venous diseases. Blood clots, deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the deep veins), superficial venous thrombosis (blood clots in the superficial veins), chronic venous insufficiency (leg swelling and ulcers due to pooling of blood), varicose veins (abnormal, dilated blood vessels), and ulcers come under the umbrella term of venous diseases.
