You may have superficial venous reflux disease.

Our board-certified interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons at Virginia Interventional & Vascular Associates (VIVA) provide minimally invasive treatment options for varicose veins.

Cause of Varicose Veins

Veins have one-way valves that close to prevent the blood from pooling at the ankles. When the valves are damaged or become stretched out, the blood leaks backward, causing the veins to enlarge and become varicose.
