Varicose Veins Risk Factors

Dr. James Benenati, Director of Non-Invasive Vascular Laboratory at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, says veins cause a variety of health problems, such as deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism, where blood clots can go from the veins up to the lungs and those can be life-threatening issues.

He explains there are other issues that affect the patient�۪s quality of life and ability to function that may not be life-threatening, such as varicose veins, which is a condition usually associated with women, but men can still get it. Its risk factors are obesity, older ager, being inactive, leg injury and smoking.
