Reasons for varicose veins occur primarily in legs?

Description:

Varicose veins are very common in India, with ten million cases of the disease are registered every year. Over 30 per cent of the adults are estimated to suffer from this disease. It basically refers to veins that become bulged or enlarged. This is due to the blood circulation of the veins is affected. In a normal and healthy person, there are valves that stop the blood from getting stagnant or flowing backwards. But in varicose veins, the valves are damaged and become weak, so that they can no longer stop the blood from stagnating or flowing backward. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

The reason Why varicose veins occur primarily
in the legs?
  • Arteries and veins are part of the circulatory
    system which helps in circulation of blood
    through our body. Arteries carry oxygenated blood
    from the heart to the rest of the body, whereas
    veins carry deoxygenated blood from the rest of
    the body to the heart.
  • Muscle contractions in lower legs act as pumps
    and valves in veins open to help blood flow
    towards heart then close to stop blood from
    flowing backward. When these valves are weak or
    damaged, it will lead to some trouble.

Why varicose veins occur primarily in the legs.
  • Firstly, the veins in hands and the rest of the
    body are closer to heart as compared to legs
    which are far away from the heart.
  • Secondly, the gravity acts against veins in legs.
    Veins must work against gravity to return blood
    to the heart. As the veins in legs are far away
    from the heart, blood has to travel a longer way
    against gravity.
  • As we spend most of our time either standing or
    sitting our veins constantly fight against the
    natural flow of gravity in order to return blood
    back to the heart.
  • Thirdly, legs are being most affected because of
    sedentary lifestyle. When we sit or stand for
    longer periods of time, muscles do not contract
    as they usually do, which helps blood pump back
    towards the heart.
