Varicose Ulcers

Leg Ulcers are present in 1 - 2 % of the adult population. In the majority of cases, leg ulcers are due to chronic venous disease, either Varicose Veins or Deep Vein Thrombosis.

Venous leg ulcers are due to increased pressure in the venous circulation, either because of Superficial Vein reflux (Varicose Veins) or Deep Venous reflux (as a result of DVT).

Proper compression therapy, with sustained pressure is essential in the treatment of leg ulcers. This compression bandaging may be required for several weeks for proper healing of ulcers. If the patient with venous ulcer has significant superficial reflux, either isolated or in association with perforator vein reflux, then good improvement is obtained by treating these conditions - which helps in the healing rate of the ulcers.

Treatment with Endovenous Laser and Foam Sclerotherapy promotes a much more rapid healing.
