If the valves pour out because of leakage, blood gathers in leg veins which can become enlarged or varicose. 

In short, condition is the result of troubles with valves within the veins of the leg. The valves fail to work properly and in consequence the veins circulate blood back into the leg instead of up to the heart that is normal procedure. Ultimately puffy, warped and unsightly veins (usually on the legs) that look lumpy and bluish emerge through the skin. If the poor circulation associated with varicose veins is not treated punctually then it can lead to skin problems, such as eczema and ulcers, aching pain, swelling, discoloration, inflammation in skin and they may bleed heavily if a prominent vein is wounded.
