Varicose Veins

A varicose vein is a swollen, twisted vein, usually near the skin surface in the leg. They can be unsightly and cause tired, heavy or painful limbs. In severe cases, the veins can rupture, or open sores (varicose ulcers) can form on the skin. Often, the varicose veins are removed to let blood flow through the remaining healthy veins.
