If you have CVI, valves in your veins (usually in the leg or sometimes the arms) do not work, causing blood to pool in your legs and putting increased pressure on the walls of the veins. When your veins have trouble sending blood from your limbs back to the heart, it is known as venous insufficiency.
In healthy veins, there is a continuous flow of blood from the limbs back toward the heart. Valves within the veins of the legs help prevent the backflow of blood.
