What is saphenopopliteal venous reflux disease?

 

 
 
Venous reflux refers to a common circulatory problem in which the leg veins do not circulate blood as efficiently as before.  The saphenopopliteal junction controls superficial blood flow in the back of the leg, and saphenopopliteal venous reflux affects varicose veins in the back of the legs.  If this occurs, a treatment known as endovenous ablation may have to be performed.  If you have varicose veins in the back of the legs, contact our office at (716) 839-3638 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hratch Karamanoukian.
