Caption: Varicosed vein. Light micrograph of a section through a varicosed saphenous vein in the lower leg, showing fibrosis - the formation of excess fibrous connective tissue. Varicose veins are veins that become swollen, lengthened and coiled. They form due to defective valves in the superficial veins, commonly in the legs, and may require surgical removal.
