My brother has been diagnosed with venous insufficiency. What is it and how can it be treated?

Normally, healthy legs have valves in the veins that move blood toward the heart and close not allowing backward flow of blood. Venous insufficiency, also referred to as venous reflux disease, develops when the vein valves no longer work/close appropriately and allow a backward flow (reflux) of blood in the lower legs. There are multiple treatment modalities to treat venous insufficiency (that close or stop the backward flow of blood), some of which include: Endovenous laser ablation, Radiofrequency Ablation, Clarivein, and Venaseal.

Chronic Venous disease, mainly due to venous reflux (or sometimes venous outflow obstruction) may be the trigger of this inflammation in your legs.
The most common cause of venous inflammation is a slower blood flow. This facilitates the inflammatory cascade leading to inflammatory reactions on the venous wall, often in connection with varicose veins. Venous inflammation may also be caused by indwelling catheters, an injury to the venous wall or penetrating bacteria, as well as, after operations and longer periods on immobility (i.e., confinement to bed).
The treatment depends on the cause, the location (i.e., what vein system, superficial vs deep), time frame of symptoms (if treated promptly or remained untreated over longer period of time).
