Brief Summary in Lay Language

Aim of the study will be, to gain awareness of the morphology and symptomatic of teleangiectasias and to find answers of the following questions:
*which types of teleangiectasias are relevant in matters of site, morphology and symptoms?
* are there differences in morphology and symptoms according to hemodynamic relevant vein diseases?
* are there differences according to gender, weight or mobility?

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Background: almost everyone suffers from teleangiectases sooner or later in his life. The first appearance of teleangiectases is already witnessed during childhood or early adulthood. But type and shape are individually very different. Some pat. don't suffer at all and others complain about paraesthesia. It seems that there are different types of teleangiectases, that appear in addition to a hemodynamic vein disease.
Until now there are no researches about teleangiectases and against this background there will be a research about the morphology and symptoms of untreated teleangiectases.
Aim is to gain awareness of morphology and symptoms of teleangiectases and to find answers to the following questions: are there interrelations between gender, weight and mobility?
The design of the research will be open, non-interventional and prospective.
