Varicose veins are a frequent sign of chronic venous failure.
The varicose vein is the result of the dilation or deformity of a vein (blood content drainage duct) located on the surface of the skin. You know you’ve got a case of varicose veins

when the size of this duct exceeds 5 mm in diameter.
When the ducts are smaller, they are reticular veins (from 2 to 5 mm); they are spider veins and telangiectasias if they have a diameter of < 2 mm.
