ABSTRACT:
Aim: The study aims to investigate the prevalence of varicose veins in 30-80 year old individuals in Tamil Nadu. Objective: The objective of the study is to investigate the prevalence of varicose veins in 50 individuals aged 30-80 years living in Tamil Nadu with the help of a questionnaire. The varicose veins were scored as present or absent, mild or severe, age and necessity of treatment. The study aims to evaluate the association between professions and cause and also various treatment methods undergone. Background: Varicose veins are enlarged and tortuous veins in the legs (usually). Varicose veins may be caused due to ageing, pregnancy, obesity, menopause and due to continuous standing for a long time. The tortuous veins causes pain. Treatment includes wearing stockings, topical gel application, endovenous laser treatment, radio frequency ablation, foam sclerotherapy and stripping. Reason: Varicose veins is a common condition among people whose occupation involves standing for long hours like teachers and traffic policemen. Though not life threatening, they can be very painful and hence a study on it will help in better understanding.
