Venous Ulcers

What is a Venous Ulcers

Venous ulcers are a type of wound that typically develops on the lower legs and ankles. They
occur when the veins in these areas are not able to effectively pump blood back to the heart,
causing the blood to pool in the legs. This can cause damage to the skin and underlying tissue,
eventually leading to an ulcer. Venous ulcers are generally shallow and irregular in shape, with
well-defined edges. They can be painful and may bleed or ooze pus. If left untreated, venous
ulcers can lead to serious infections. Treatment typically involves wearing compression
stockings, elevating the legs, and cleansing the wound and applying proper dressings. In severe
cases, surgical vein procedures or surgery may be necessary to repair the damaged veins. At
Complex Health Solutions, we offer a comprehensive wound care and vascular clinic where we
specialize in providing both wound care management and the required vein procedures. Our
goal is to help facilitate wound healing through the appropriate treatment and interventions.

Signs and Symptoms

If blood pools inside the veins of the lower leg, then the fluids and blood cells will spill into the other tissues. This may cause dry, itchy skin and can cause skin disorders called stasis-dermatitis. It is an indicator of venous deficiency. Other early signs are:

  • Heaviness, leg swelling, and cramping
  • Dark red, purple, or brown, and the skin is hardened (this is a sign of pooling blood )
  • Tingling and itching
