Lymphedema

Lymphedema refers to swelling in the legs due to abnormal flow of fluid through lymph vessels.

 

Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition that occurs when the venous wall and/or valves in the leg veins are not working effectively, making it difficult for blood to return to the heart from the legs.
