Venous Insufficiency

Venous insufficiency is a condition in which the flow of blood through the veins is impaired. Venous insufficiency can be caused by a number of disorders of the veins, particularly deep vein thrombosis (blood clot) or varicose veins. Common symptoms of venous insufficiency include edema (swelling), skin discoloration, skin ulcers, aching/burning/throbbing sensations in the legs and feet, cramping and leg weakness.

The interventional radiologists on the medical staff at Mountain Vista Medical Center can perform an ultrasound evaluation to define the venous anatomy and severity. A small catheter can be placed into the vein and using radiofrequency ablation or laser, the vein can be fixed to allow for improved blood flow, decreased pain and improved appearance of the veins in the leg (i.e., varicose veins).
