Risk Factors
Vein disease has several known risk factors. These include:

• Lifestyle, including prolonged standing
• Family history
• Obesity
• Pregnancy
• Illness, trauma, or surgery
• Medications
• Prior history of blood clots
• Age

Your risk for one of the most common conditions, varicose veins, may be especially heightened by age, which causes the valves in veins to become weakened. This wear and tear can eventually result in the valves allowing blood to pool in the veins, instead of flowing up to the heart. Women are also more likely than men to develop varicose veins, due to hormonal changes during pregnancy, premenstruation, or menopause.

Your risk of developing a more serious condition – deep vein thrombosis, whereby a blood clot forms in a deep vein – increases if you sit or remain inactive for long periods of time. When the legs are still for a prolonged time, such as when driving or flying, the calf muscles don’t contract to help keep blood circulating.

Vein disease in legs is a serious issue. That said, whatever your risk factors may be for developing a vein condition, the vein experts at New York Cardiovascular Associates will take the time and care to assess your unique case, and recommend preventive, diagnostic, or other follow-up as needed.
