Venous insufficiency is a condition caused by valves inside of veins which fail to function properly. Veins are responsible for carrying blood back to the heart, using internal valves that keep blood flowing in the proper direction. When these valves become damaged, malfunction, or simply wear out, blood can pool in the lower veins, resulting in the formation of varicose veins and uncomfortable accompanying symptoms.
