What causes venous leg ulcers?
Leg ulcers are debilitating and greatly reduce patients’ quality of life. The common causes are venous disease, arterial disease, and neuropathy and thrombosis (DVT). Less common causes are metabolic disorders, hematological disorders, and infective diseases.
There are a few leg ulcer treatment options. Some are non-invasive, while others are more medically involved. Your doctor will choose the best option based on the severity of your condition.
Your doctor will typically recommend a short compression bandage and stockings for a leg ulcer. This is a skilled procedure that is best performed by Dr Gharai.
Surgery or vein ablation
If your leg ulcer is not healing through compression and dressing, you may need surgery or vein ablation to correct and improve blood flow in your leg.
