Abstract

Women have a high incidence of chronic venous disease. Venous occlusive disease can lead to significant morbidity and even death. Factors such as genetics, medications, and diseases can play a role in the development of venous thrombosis. In women, pregnancy can lead to a hypercoagulable state and a greater risk of venous complication. Awareness and education will be very important in the future to help identify those patients at risk.
