What is Venous Reflux Disease?

Venous Reflux disease develops when the valves within the legs, that keep blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart, become damaged or diseased. This common condition affects 75 million Americans, and if left untreated can become debilitating and in some cases life-threatening.
