What are Venous Stasis Ulcers

Venous stasis ulcers are a type of wound that usually develops on the lower legs and ankles. They’re caused by a build-up of fluid in the leg veins, which makes it difficult for blood to circulate properly. This can cause the skin to break down, leading to an ulcer. Venous stasis ulcers are more likely to develop in people who have conditions that affect blood circulation, such as varicose veins, heart failure, and deep vein thrombosis. Treatment for venous stasis ulcers typically involves a combination of wound care and compression therapy. In some cases, surgery may also be necessary to improve blood flow. With proper treatment, most venous stasis ulcers will heal within a few months.

Treatments for Stasis Ulcers

Treatments for stasis ulcers typically focus on improving circulation and alleviating inflammation. In some cases, this can be achieved through lifestyle changes, such as exercising regularly and managing any underlying medical conditions. compression garments may also be recommended to help reduce swelling. If lifestyle changes and compression therapy are not effective, other treatment options include medications, surgery, and skin grafts. The type of treatment will depend on the severity of the ulcer and the underlying cause. With proper treatment, most stasis ulcers will heal within a few months. However, some ulcers may take longer to heal or may recur.

Venous Ulcer Diagnosis and Treatment

Vascular surgeons from Complex HealthCare use duplex ultrasound, some non-invasive tests, and apply necessary methods to identify abnormal veins that cause ulcers in the venous system.

Our specialty is to continuously look at the root of the ulceration to address venous pathology and ensure that the ulcer heals completely.

After a thorough examination of the veins in your body, we will suggest the following treatment plans based on your specific needs:

Compression

  • Compression of the legs is essential to healing vein wounds.
  • Compression stockings are commonly employed for this purpose.
  • The compression dressing blocks the pressure exerted by the veins on the leg, allowing your skin to heal.

Unna boots

  • A moist gauze can apply to the lower leg, starting at the base of the toes until just below the knee.
  • This then sets to form a comfortable boot for the leg.
  • The support provided by the boot aids in improving blood flow to the veins and treating the ulcer.

Transparent dressings

  • A transparent, plastic-like film is sprayed over the wound.
  • Support stockings are put on underneath the dresser to keep it in place and increase circulation at the extremity.

Hydrocolloid dressings

  • A dressing is put on the ulcer to aid healing.
  • It also aids in the removal of any non-living tissue out of the site (debridement).

Growth factors

  • The application of investigational drugs is to the wound to encourage tissue growth.

Surgery or vein ablation

  • Sometimes, minor operations (wound debridement) or vein ablation (a non-surgical method that closes the vein) are used to eliminate all nonliving tissue that hinders the wound from being healed effectively.
