Author information

  • 1Vascular Surgery, University of Wisconsin, Wisconsin, USA.


Problematic varicose veins are estimated to occur in up to 30 million Americans and may be symptomatic and/or unsightly. The majority of symptomatic varicose veins occur in the lower extremities and can result in significant circulatory disease. This problem is more common in women as a result of pregnancy and child bearing. Cosmetic treatment for varicosities is best achieved with a variety of sclerosing procedures.
