What is the Role of Perforator Veins in Varicose Veins?

When the perforator veins don’t do their job correctly, blood may flow from the deep veins to the superficial, leading to the formation of varicose veins.

Oct. 19, 2012 - PRLog -- About 70% of women and 30% of men will develop a venous disorder, such as spider veins, varicose veins or even deep vein thrombosis. This is due to a number of factors including heredity, hormonal changes, standing or sitting for long periods of time, aging or carrying excess weight. Whatever the cause may be, the perforator veins play an important role in creating venous disorders such as varicose veins or skin ulcers. So, what are perforator veins and what is their role in venous disorders?

The body has two networks of veins traveling through the arms and legs: the superficial venous system and the deep venous system. The superficial system includes the veins that sit close to the skin while the deep venous system is made up of the veins located close to the nerves, arteries and bones. The two systems run parallel to one another and are connected by perforator veins. Perforator veins have one-way valves that are responsible for draining blood from the superficial veins to the deep veins. The deep veins, using a low pressure system, then pump the blood against gravity to return it back to the heart.

When the perforator veins don’t do their job correctly, blood may flow from the deep veins to the superficial, creating high pressure. It’s this high pressure that causes the thin walls of the veins to stretch and elongate, allowing blood to pool in the veins, depleted of all oxygen and nutrients. Spider veins and varicose veins will then start to appear, typically in the lower legs.

While they are certainly unsightly, varicose veins are more than just a cosmetic issue. Left untreated, a person can suffer adverse consequences such as blood clots or deep vein thrombosis. If there are signs of venous insufficiency, make an appointment with a vein specialist in Beverly Hills to regain vein health and avoid developing more serious problems.
