The leg veins have an important task: They must transport the blood "from the bottom up", that is, from the feet to the torso/lungs/heart and thus overcome gravity. Valves prevent backflow. If these valves are not working, blood stasis results: Spider veins (small bright red or dark blue vascular branches) in the upper skin and varicose veins (coiled up and palpable veins) under the skin are the visible results. Varicose veins may result in inflammation, swelling of the legs/feet, thromboses or even ulcers (venous ulcers).
The experts at Rosenpark Klinik probe the causes of spider veins and varicose veins in detail and with much expertise – because even spider veins that appear harmless may be signs of serious problems. Using the most modern methods, they examine your legs' blood supply and explain practical treatment methods to you.
