“Non-healing wounds” and “Vein disease”
Did you know more than two-thirds of leg ulcers are caused by venous insufficiency also known as varicose veins?
Why do bad veins cause skin problems and ulcerations?
The lower extremity circulation consists of two main systems, Arteries and Veins.
The arteries bring the fresh blood (containing oxygen and nutrient) to the leg, and once that is done, the blood gathers metabolites (the waste products) from the legs and enters the veins. The veins will carry the used-up blood back to the heart, lungs, and kidneys to clean and refresh.
If the veins are diseased, the poor-quality blood will pool in the legs instead of going back to the core. Poor-quality blood will cause several problems, including swelling, diseased skin (with progressive darkening) and ultimately ulcerations.
Ulcers caused by poor circulation may heal very slowly or not heal at all unless the cause is corrected, and proper wound care is initiated.
In the case of ulcers related to vein disease, we can treat varicose veins, which is proven to help heal ulcers.
There are times that leg and foot ulcers are caused by trauma, pressure, or arterial disease. Presence of vein disease will hinder the healing of ANY ULCER due to blood pooling.
Most common wounds are venous ulcers, arterial ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, burns, trauma, radiation injury, and post-surgical non healing incisions.
