    The word varicose itself means abnormally swollen, dilated or twisted veins. The word come from Latin word varix, that means twisted. 

    Now a days sclerotherapy, is a treatment of choice for these varicose veins. In this treatment an irritating solution is being injected in the veins , to make them narrow. 

Pathophysiology - 

    Blood from the lower part of our body returns to heart against gravity. The inferior vena cava collects blood from the superficial and deep venous system of lower extremities and poured in the right ventricle. The major veins involved are saphenous vein and femoral vein.

    There are delicate but strong bicuspid valves located at the base of dilated sinus of vein and prevent the backflow of deoxygenated blood. The strength and density of valves is greater at the calf muscles. 

    There may valvular incompetence. The valves may lost their elastin an collagen resulting in dilatation and separation of valves. In case of damage to this mechanism of valve closure, results in dilation of the veins. This gradually increases and results in varicosity.

Risk Factors - 

    Pregnancy, obesity, family history, long standing job, sitting for a long time, leg injury, these can be the common risk factors for the varicosity. Regular walking can prevent the condition. In women after menopause, due to hormonal changes, varicosity is seen.

    If you have visible veins at surface on legs, or at the end of the day your feet are swollen, this can indicate that you are at risk of varicosity. 

Complication - 

    As the venous stasis does not drain sufficient blood from the skin surface, it may result in open ulcer. Edema, cellulitis may be the further complications in neglected cases. 

    Inflammation of veins called thrombophlebitis, can be the end result of varicosity, if not treated at time.  That can be painful. 

Management to reduce the complaints - 

    Compression therapy, elevating legs in lying down position, losing weight, walking, regular exercise can be helpful to manage the problem and prevent the complication.  

     Some dietetic changes such as including two to three cloves of garlic in diet may help reduce varicose veins.

    Homoeopathy includes a treasure of brilliant remedies in it. In this science of treatment, there are some drugs with action on blood vessels. They act deeply on the veins and may help reverse the condition. In late phase, on complicated cases, the Homoeopathic drugs at least may help lower the sufferings.
