What Is Chronic Venous Insufficiency?

What Is Chronic Venous Insufficiency?

Venous insufficiency isn’t actually a specific condition, but rather a general term that applies to a range of disorders affecting the veins, blood vessels, and valves within the veins. Such conditions do normally interfere with the usual function of the veins. CVI can prevent blood from reaching the skin and oxygenating the skin cells normally, which can lead to a variety of symptoms, including;

  • Edema (swelling of the skin)
  • Restlessness
  • Discolored skin
  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Dermatitis (general skin problems)
  • A feeling of heaviness or discomfort in the skin
  • Pain or cramping in the calves
  • Dry eczema, weeping eczema, or venous eczema
  • Venous leg ulcers

Stages of Progressive Chronic Venous Insufficiency


More broadly , CVI is known as a progressive condition that increases in severity if allowed to progress without treatment. While CVI affects each patient distinguishably, most patients experience a progression with no visible signs, but mild symptoms of pain or discomfort in the legs.

Reticular Veins: Visible, enlarged dark blue or green veins.

Varicose Veins: Swollen, bumpy veins that protrude from the skin.

Edema: Swelling in the legs. Both legs may swell or one may swell more than the other.

Skin Changes: The color or texture of your skin may change due to over pigmentation, eczema, dermatitis, or lipodermatosclerosis (hardening of the skin).

Active Venous Ulcer: This is the most severe stage of CVI, causing an active ulcer to form in the skin – essentially, an open wound that will not heal. Ulcers may form spontaneously or result from a minor skin injury. Treatment is essential at this stage.

Healed Ulcer: With treatment, active ulcers can heal, but even the healed ulcer is a weak point in the skin and make recurrence more likely.

Veins Affected by CVI

CVI affects each patient differently, however there are a few veins that commonly develop venous insufficiency.

These include:

Great Saphenous Vein (GSV): This stretches from the groin area to the ankle. It’s the longest superficial vein in your body and the most common vein for insufficiency.

Small Saphenous Vein (SSV): This stretches from the back of the knee ot the ankle.

Perforator Veins: These veins connect superficial veins to the deep venous system. Some of these veins pass through muscle, which can put pressure on the vein and cause it to bulge.
