CHRONIC VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY (CVI)
CVI is caused by inflammation and blood pooling in the lower extremities leading to varicose veins, swollen legs, stasis dermatitis and eventually venous ulcers.
Prevalance in USA
Internationally Accepted Classification for Chronic Venous Disease
Rising obesity and the aging population are increasing the prevalence of CVI. Current therapies include life style changes (e.g. increased hydration, dietary change), compression therapy (e.g. compression socks), antibiotics to treat skin infections, anti-coagulants to prevent blood clots, and surgery in acute cases. Other than surgery on ulcers, there is no direct treatment available for CVI. Symptoms include:
- Flaking or itching skin in the legs and feet
- Full or heavy feeling in your legs.
- Leathery-looking skin on your legs
- Chronic venous ulcers
Untreated CVI can also lead to life threatening deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
