Venous Leg Ulcers

Venous Leg Ulcers: Needle Stick Venous Stasis Ulcer Treatment Offers a Permanent Cure

Venous Leg UlcerAs the ultimate consequence of untreated venous stasis and severe venous hypertension (high blood pressure), leg ulcers make life almost unbearable for patients. Swollen, aching legs, difficulty standing and walking, restless legs, brownish discolored leathery skin, and infected leg ulcers are constant reminders of the agony of venous disease.

Too many times, patients with stasis leg ulcers are misdiagnosed and mismanaged. They may be treated for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) or sent for symptomatic wound care treatment. In spite of weeks to months of wound treatment, their ulcers resist healing. When ulcers and cellulitis, the surrounding infection fails to resolve, patients are often told that amputation is their only alternative. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to happen to you. The answers including a permanent cure, are available through simple, painless, out-patient procedures performed right in the office at VSA. Keep reading to learn more.

The Disease Process behind Leg Ulcers Caused by Venous Insufficiency

When valves in leg veins become incompetent, vein blood flow reverses. This increases blood pressure in the venous system and is called venous hypertension. Usually patients notice the formation of spider veins and varicose veins in the early stages as these superficial veins dilate or become engorged. With worsening venous stasis and congestion, the increased venous pressure causes swelling as fluid leaks into surrounding tissues. Skin thickens and becomes discolored due to impaired capillary exchange of nutrients and wastes. Eventually tissue death results, producing venous leg ulcers and the potential for a severe infection around the ulcer called cellulitis. Venous leg ulcers and the associated symptoms are collectively called chronic venous insufficiency or CVI. Problems in the saphenous and perforator vein systems are generally found in patients with these conditions.
