Leg Ulcers

Personalized Medical Treatment for Venous Leg Ulcers:

The most severe manifestation of venous disease is when inadequate blood flow from venous congestion causes weakening of the immune system, namely white blood cells. The weakened immune system and venous congestion combination can cause a local build up of toxins in the tissues of the legs, most commonly in the inner ankle areas.  The build up can manifest itself by an eruption and breakdown of the skin called an ulcer. Venous disease is the source in the majority of venous ulcer patients.

Symptoms of venous ulcers include:

  • Open wound/sore in lower leg around the ankle, most commonly on the inner/inside of the ankle.
  • Leg swelling
  • Itchiness
  • Skin discoloration
  • Signs of infection at wound site

A personal medical treatment plan will be carefully mapped out for patients that suffer from venous ulcers. Often the first course of action is compression to relieve built up pressure, but invariably treatment of the offending vein(s) will need to occur. In most cases, ablation of the diseased superficial vein and/or treatment of any perforator or tributary veins that lead to the ulcer will help to re-direct blood flow and alleviate the congestion and clear the toxins. The relief of the pooled blood helps to the deliver fresh blood and nutrients to heal the ulcers.
