Diagnosis of varicose veins of the lower limbs – functional tests

Varicose veins of the lower limbs are dilated, gnarled, swirled and twisted superficial veins with balloon -like bulges. They are divided into two types – primary varicose veins with normal deep veins and secondary ones which develop after trauma or superficial phlebitis. They form in various locations, e.g. on the great saphenous vein, accessory posterior and anterior saphenous vein and small saphenous vein. Present study presents functional tests used in diagnosis of variose veins.
