Varicose veins – medically called varicose veins – appear most frequently in the veins of the legs. They can be recognized by their tortuous shape and irregular progression and are more common in women than men, usually between the ages of 25 and over 70 years. Varicose veins are often caused by weak connective tissue. If they run in the visible vein system, one speaks of primary varicose veins. Varicose veins manifest themselves in legs that hurt or feel heavy, usually after standing or sitting for a long time.
