Venous leg ulcer and wound care therapies that may benefit

from Vein Magazine

Chronic venous leg ulcers are the result of endothelial damage and leukocyte activation, inflammation and changes in the microcirculation, which leads to persistent elevated venous ambulatory pressures, with eventual destruction of tissue integrity. Chronic venous disease and its severe form account for skin changes and ulceration, affecting 2-5 percent of the Western population, with VLU affecting 1.5 percent of the Western population. Importantly, 2 million workdays per year are lost due to VLU, and may cause early retirement that affects up to 12.5 percent of workers with venous ulcers. This puts the estimated cost of treating VLU at $3 billion annually. more
