Unhealthy veins can affect your quality of life. This may come as a surprise to some, but to those who have suffered from spider veins and varicose veins, this is not a shocking statement.
Chronic venous insufficiency (or CVI) is a medical condition in which the veins do not operate properly. Usually this is due to damage of the vein wall and/or valves—both of which are critical for returning blood to the heart from the legs.
