Las venas varicosas son venas superficiales, dolorosas, retorcidas y agrandadas que resultan del funcionamiento deficiente de las válvulas y que usualmente ocurren en las venas de las piernas, aunque se pueden presentar en otras partes. Es una condición muy común que afecta principalmente a las mujeres.
