Leg Ulcers

The presence of leg ulcers is the final and most advanced stage of venous reflux disease. Venous ulcers occur when there’s a break in the skin on your leg, usually around the ankle.

The veins in the leg are not able to send blood back to the heart.  This buildup of blood increases the pressure, causing the skin to weaken and makes it more difficult for a cut or scrape to heal.

Treatment

A cornerstone of treatment for venous ulcer is the proper diagnosis and treatment of the underlying venous disorder. The underlying venous disorder can be treated by a combination of modalities (Radio Frequency Ablation, VenaSeal, Sclerotherapy).
