Venous stasis disease is a very common disorder. Most patients have mild disease that is easily controlled with compression stockings. Certainly, there are patients where the extent of disease is so severe that they can be considered disabled.

Specializes in Vascular Surgery

Venous stasis is the end result of underlying venous reflux or insufficiency in the legs, and is generally treatable, especially if treated early, or before major complications develop. However, left untreated, it can progress to severe levels, which could become disabling. Sadly, this only occurs if it is not identified and treated appropriately. See a vein specialist before complications arise.
