Australian Vein Clinics
The persistent swelling of varicose veins, and deterioration of skin quality in the area can also create non-healing venous leg ulcers.
The persistent swelling of varicose veins, and deterioration of skin quality in the area can create non-healing ulcers. This means that wounds that would usually heal through blood flow, such as small cuts, can turn into skin ulcers that usually will be difficult for the body to heal.
- Discoloured or hardened skin
- Varicose Veins / Venous Disease
- Poor blood circulation
- A minor injury
With about 80% of venous legs ulcers being caused by venous disease, treating this can be the best place to start. Treatment of venous disease can be done non-surgically through Endovenous Laser Ablation or Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy.
Other treatments for venous leg ulcers include:
- Wound Care
- Elevation of the lim
- Compression of the area
