I'm almost certain that varicose veins are NOT an issue with the actual deep veins... they are an issue with superficial veins.

Default DVT

Varicose veins are due to valvular incompetency and thus the reflux pressure buildup. Practically, nothing to do with triad of deep stasis (except for medial malleolus veinous stasis/dermatitis), hypercoagulability and endothelial dysfuction that are predisposing factors for thromboembolism.. Disregard medscape because they are very inclusive and will write in even the rarest of causes. Focus on the main concept!
