Duplex Ultrasound: A common complaint are unsightly bulging foot veins. These may be normal veins or they may be varicose. A venous reflux duplex would be performed to look for a root cause of the bulging veins. These veins can be treated with excellent results using the techniques of phlebectomy and/or endvenous laser ablation if reflux is a contributing factor.
