Chronic venous insufficiency of the lower extremity is a clinically recognized syndrome commonly found in the adult population; it is due to a disturbance of the venous outflow, most often as a result of venous valve insufficiency. In some persons it appears to be an inherent progressive degenerative disorder, and in others, a result of thrombophlebitis in the leg veins. Superficial venous insufficiency is benefited by surgical treatment, whereas deep venous insufficiency is controlled by means of elastic compression, elevation of the legs, and exercising of the leg muscles.
