Varicosities or varicose veins are tortuous and dilated veins of the subcutaneous venous system. They are enlarged veins, filled with excessive blood and are bluish-purple or red in appearance. They appear raised and swollen and often the result of incompetence in the one-way venous valves. There is a disruption in the flow of blood into the heart thus causing venous hypertension. When one system develops incompetence the other system follows suit. The failure of valves located at SFJ and SPJ lead to a deficiency in the superficial venous system.
