Chronic venous disease or CVD occurs when the blood in your legs cannot flow back to your heart. When this happens, pooling blood can raise pressure in your veins, causing a range of problems. 1 in 3 Americans over the age of 45 has some type of venous disease.5 Blockage of the deep venous circulation in the abdominal/pelvic area is now recognized as a cause of CVD. This can occur when either the iliac vein in your pelvis becomes compressed by the overlying artery, or from a blockage following deep vein thrombosis (DVT).1,2,3,4 Early diagnosis Are you at risk for CVD?5 • Family history can lead to better results • Obesity • Hormonal changes—pregnancy, menopause, hormone therapy • Immobilization after surgery or injury • History of deep venous thrombosis – blood clots in the leg veins • Prolonged standing What conservative treatments are available? Compression socks, skin ointments or medications are often used to provide some relief. © 2017 Koninklijke Philips N.V. All rights reserved.
