To return blood to the heart, the veins of the legs must work against gravity. Muscle contractions in the lower legs act like pumps and the walls of the veins help to return the blood to the heart. The valves in the veins open to flow the blood to the heart and close to prevent blood from flowing back. With age, these venous valves are deteriorating, which causes that they become insufficient and the blood flows backward by effect of the gravity. There may also be congenital damage to the valves.
