Your veins, arteries and vessels are essential for transporting blood throughout your body. Your vascular system is responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients to your body tissues that keep you healthy and moving. When you don’t have regular blood flow to every part of your body, the resulting illnesses and conditions can be serious, and in some cases, cause permanent damage.

More than 40 million Americans are affected by varicose veins and venous insufficiency. You may be at a higher risk for vascular conditions is you are a smoker, diabetic or have high blood pressure.
