The Venous System: In the circulatory system arteries distribute oxygen-enriched blood throughout the body, and veins return deoxygenated blood back to the heart. This trek back to the heart is called venous blood flow. The leg veins are at a greater risk of developing disorders than just about any other part of the circulatory system. The leg veins must carry large volumes back to the heart traveling uphill and fighting gravity the entire way. The pumping action of the heart alone is not sufficient to achieve this journey.
Venous blood flow in the legs is aided by 3 important factors:
a series of one-directional valves
the surrounding calf muscle pump
the elasticity of the vein wall.
Any malfunction in this system of venous blood flow back to the heart can result in a venous disorder.
