The venous age is a calculation tool inspired by the arterial age of the Framingham study whose purpose is to sensitize people to their venous conditions and the need of taking care of it. It indicates a person’s venous age according to their gender and to the functional signs and physical symptoms they are presenting. The calculation results from the analysis of a worldwide data base including 124,235 people from 24 countries, having or not a venous insufficiency, and whose functional or physical symptoms are described in this study.
