You will find many things on this page to help you determine whether or not you need to treat varicose vains.
Varicose veins occur as blood flows to an infected part of the body. There are three common forms of varicose veins:
A "varicose artery" that leads from the head of the main artery of the heart to the neck and the spine, sometimes called a "pericardial" vein. This is the least common form of varicose vein, but it can lead to many complications, including serious complications including death. An aortic aneurysm in the aorta. This can be a life-threatening condition, especially in the older adults and older children. In aneurysms, the aorta can rupture and bleed to death. The aorta also can block blood flow to other parts of the body. An aortic aneurysm in a coronary artery. This condition is more serious and can also be fatal.
These complications can result in blood clots in the legs or in the heart, as well as internal bleeding. If left untreated, these can cause a stroke or heart attack, or even death. If there is no access to a hospital or intensive care unit for treatment, even though you are conscious, you may be trapped in the aneurysm and die.
