Disrupts the osmotic barrier of the venous endothelium, resulting in the destruction of the cells and stimulation of vasospasm, which stimulates sclerosis and occlusion of varicose veins [3].
Prevalence data vary; however, it is thought that varicose veins are found in about 10-20% of men and 25-33% of women [4].
