Chronic venous disease (CVD) is often overlooked by primary and cardiovascular care providers because of an underappreciation of the magnitude and impact of the problem. The important of CVD is related to the number of people with the disease and the socioeconomic impact of its more severe manifestatation. The initial phase of the desease is often neglected by most patients and many seek treatment when the disease is advanced. The most common manifestations of CVD are dilated cutaneous veins. The term chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) describes a condition that affects the venous system of the lower extremities with venous hypertension causing various pathologies. The most commnon pathology is reflux in the superficial veins, while isolated deep vein reflux is uncommon. Obstruction alone is rare, but is frequently found in combination with reflux, a scenario that has the worst prognosis. Several modalities of treatment are available, from medication using venoactive drugs through to open and endovenous interventions. A comprehensive understanding of the causative mechanisms involved in tlte development of CVD is mandatory for choosing the most appropriate and tailored treatment for each patient.
