      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. Venous disease is a common problem.

      2. The spectrum of venous disease depends on the severity and extent of venous reflux in the lower extremities.

      3. Venous ultrasound is most useful to guide treatment of varicose veins and milder cases of leg swelling but becomes less informative for more advanced stages of venous insufficiency.

      4. Many minimally invasive treatment options exist for the treatment of varicose veins. IAC accredited vein centers are best able to provide these treatments.

      5. The key elements of treatment are compression, elevation and exercise and enforcing compliance.
