Superficial venous insufficiency refers to a condition when superficial veins of lower extremities (greater and lesser saphenous veins) do not bring blood upstream toward the heart, but rather allow it to drain down. It takes place because the veins become too wide and their valves do not reach each other allowing, therefore, the blood to leak in between. Such reversal of blood flow is the main difference between superficial venous insufficiency and all other diseases causing swelling of lower extremities. The risk factors for this disease include genetic predisposition in addition to states significantly increasing endovenous pressure for prolonged time, such as lifting heavy weights, prolonged standing, multiple pregnancies, obesity, sedentary life style, pelvic tumors and many others.

I usually don't write reviews, but I feel that Dr. Lev literally saved my leg. I am 35 and not the typical patient for this kind of stuff, but I had an open ulcer on my leg for 3 years!!! Compression, creams, special diet - nothing helped. After Dr. K's treatment, the ulcer slowly began disappearing and it was gone in 6 weeks. If you ever had an ulcer, you know exactly how I felt!
