What Is Venous Reflux?
In healthy veins, the valves function by pumping the blood back to the heart from all parts of the body. When these valves become damaged or weakened the blood can pool in the legs and feet where gravity makes it difficult for the blood to make its way to the heart. This is called venous reflux.
Who Gets Venous Reflux?
Venous reflux is a very common condition that affects more than 30 million Americans. People are more likely to get venous reflux if they identify with one or more of the following contributing factors:
- Multiple pregnancies
- >40 years of age
- Extended periods of standing
- Relatives with venous reflux (varicose veins)
- History of clotting in the legs
