Answer

In a cross-sectional population study on the prevalence of chronic venous insufficiency, carried out in 24 cities in northern, central, and southern Italy, Chiesa et al found that only 22.7% of the approximately 5900 participants (aged 18-90 years) demonstrated no visible signs of venous disease. Moreover, venous reflux, a sign of venous insufficiency, was found to some extent in about 53% of participants older than 50 years. [15]
