Varicose Veins

Related Topic:

Definition and General Information:

Varicose veins were first defined by Carl Arnold Ruge, a German pathologist from Berlin as any dilated, elongated and toruous vein irrespective of size.

These enlarged veins are commonly found on the legs and feet. However, they may also occur on the hands, arms and some other parts of the body. These veins look like spider vains (also known as telangiectasias) but larger which are usually about 3 mm or more in diameter. They may come in flesh, dark purple or blue colors which seem to be twisted and bulging cords. They bulge due to the fact that these are swollen veins which rise above the skin's surface. They are more common in women than in men since varicose veins may also be due to menopause and pregnancy.
