Varicose disease is the most prevalent vascular disorder affecting lower extremities. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is common in subjects with incompetent superficial and perforator veins. Major attention in pathogenesis of CVI is paid to horizontal venous reflux, while pathological blood flow in the superficial veins may sometimes be regarded as a postural reaction. At the same time cardiac pathology may also attribute to the development of CVI. The article presents a case report describing a female patient with combination of the right heart pathology and varicose disease associated with tricuspid regurgitation leading to constant venous reflux in the lower extremity superficial veins with further development of trophic changes.
