Swollen veins, usually in the legs, common during pregnancy because of increased blood volume and increased pressure on the veins from the growing uterus. They usually disappear after delivery.
Distended superficial veins.
abnormally dilated or enlarged veins
Dilated blood vessels with incompetent valves. Causes include congenitally defective valves, thrombophlebitis, pregnancy and obesity.
abnormal veins, usually found in the legs and anal region, that have become permanently stretched, causing slow blood flow and tendency to form clots.
swollen veins on the surface of the leg. Further info.
are weakened, swollen, or twisted veins.
Enlarged superficial veins of the legs, which can produce heaviness, throbbing or aching and may present an unsightly cosmetic appearance.
Protruding, enlarged, bluish veins, usually in the legs
Dilated veins, usually in legs when valves are incompetent; blood flow is static or reversed.
Dilatation of veins, usually in the legs, due to rupturing of the small valves in the veins. Many pregnant women experience distended, enlarged veins on their legs
Dilated, tortuous veins of the lower Extremities that are caused by incompetence of the valves within the vein.
These are abnormally swollen veins, usually on the legs. They are a common, often hereditary condition during pregnancy, and can be helped by wearing support stockings.
Gnarled, enlarged veins (blood vessels) close to the skin's surface, usually in the legs and feet. Veins carry blood from the body parts back to the heart. They have valves which prevent the blood from flowing backwards. If these valves weaken, some of the blood can leak back into the vein, collect there, and then become congested or clogged. This congestion can create varicose veins. (Vascular)
dilated, tortuous superficial veins typically occurring in the legs. They are caused by incompetence of the valves within the superficial veins. As these valves become more incompetent, blood backs up and causes dilatation of superficial veins. While these veins are not harmful, they may lead to swelling, discoloration, and discomfort in the lower extremities.
The veins in the leg may become weakened and enlarged, particularly after blood clots have formed in them. Such thin-walled, enlarged veins are called "varicose" and cannot be used for coronary bypass grafts.
Enlarged, ropey, bulging and twisted superficial veins. Varicose veins are formed when the one-way valves inside veins do not work properly for various reasons (see risk factors for vein disease). If the vein valve becomes damaged or does not do its job, blood is allowed to leak backwards, causing increased pressure on the preceding area of the vein. Over time, the vein walls become thickened and enlarged. Varicose veins often produce aching and pain (see also varicose vein symptoms), and are many times present in the condition of chronic venous insufficiency. Once venous valves are damaged, they cannot be repaired. (See related varicose vein complications).
Veins with incompetent valves which are elongated, dilated, tortuous, pouched and thickened. An estimated 10%-20% of the general population has varicose veins. It is more frequent among women and all adults after age 502.
Swollen and dilated veins, usually visible on the legs.

enlarged, curving veins just beneath the skin, usually in the legs.
Swollen veins, usually in the legs, that are a common byproduct of pregnancy because of increased blood volume, pregnancy-induced relaxation of the muscle tissue of the veins, and increased pressure on the veins from the growing uterus. Overweight women and smokers are more likely to have varicose veins.
enlarged, twisted veins just below the surface of the skin, caused by defective valves in the veins
Veins in the legs that become large and twisted. They occur because we walk upright. They can itch, or even ache.
twisted, widened veins caused by swollen or enlarged blood vessels. The blood vessels have enlarged due a weakening in the vein's wall or valves.
Veins very close to each other.
Dilated, twisted veins with nonfunctioning valves, usually found in the legs, in which blood can back up instead of flowing normally back to the heart.
large, dilated veins of the legs.
abnormal veins that are stretched.
Vein that is twisted--tortuous--and distended with blood. The term varix is also used for similar abnormalities in arteries and in lymphatic vessels. Varicose veins occur in a number of areas, including the legs; the esophagus, or gullet; the spermatic veins, which return blood from the testes.
Veins that are swollen and dilated, usually visible on the skins surface and most common on the legs.
Veins that are twisted and swollen just below the skin. Veins carry blood back to the heart.
Unusually swollen and sometimes painful veins.
Swollen, distended veins especially visible in the legs.
swelling of veins (usually in the legs) resulting from defective valves
Twisted, widened veins with incompetent valves.
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted. The term commonly refers to the veins on the leg, although varicose veins occur elsewhere. Veins have leaflet valves to prevent blood from flowing backwards (retrograde).
