Compared with controls, those with varicose veins had more incident DVT (6.55 per 1,000 person-years vs. 1.23 per 1,000 person-years; absolute risk difference, 5.32; 95% CI, 5.18-5.46) and significantly elevated risk for DVT (HR = 5.3; 95% CI, 5.05-5.56), according to the researchers.
By contrast, other vascular conditions and diseases - such as deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and peripheral artery disease - are thought to be serious and risky. They discovered that people with varicose veins are five times more likely to develop DVT.
They likewise had twofold the danger of fringe blood vessel disease, which lessens blood stream to the arms and legs.
Response: Varicose veins are common, with about 23 percent of USA adults having the condition, but they are rarely thought to be associated with serious health risks.
Though they looked at the health records of more than 425,000 adults, the researchers say that even more work is needed to understand whether this relationship is one in which varicose veins directly cause blood clots or whether the two conditions simply have a similar origin.
According to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) at least a third of the United Kingdom population have varicose veins, and women are more likely than men to develop them. Symptoms of varicose veins includes burning, bulging veins, muscle cramping, leg throbbing, and fatigue in the legs.
The Study Chen's team conducted a retrospective cohort study using claims data from Taiwan's National Health Insurance program that excluded any patients who were previously diagnosed with DVT, PE, or PAD. Have you got varicose veins?
