What are Venous Ulcers?
Venous ulcers are the most common type of leg ulcer. Caused by damaged valves in the veins that allow blood to start pooling in the legs, our patients typically see these wounds begin to form below the knees or on the inner sides of their ankles. Many patients won't begin to notice their ulcers being dangerous until they get infected, at which times, they can become painful and swollen. If you believe the open wounds on your legs may be venous ulcers, we encourage you to Contact us and schedule your private consultation with one of our specialists at your earliest convenience. The sooner you seek treatment for your venous ulcers, the less invasive and more effective your treatments will be.
How Do I Know if I Have Venous Ulcers?
Common symptoms of venous ulcers that many of our patients find they experience include:
- Swollen legs and ankles
- Aching and throbbing in the legs
- Thickening or itching skin on the legs and ankles
- Scabbing or flaking leg skin
- Leg pain that gets worse when you stand
- Skin discoloration on the legs
- Varicose veins
What Causes Venous Ulcers?
To allow proper blood flow throughout the body, each of our veins has sets of valves that keep the blood flowing in the right direction. When these valves become damaged or begin to deteriorate with age, the veins can no longer prevent a backflow of blood. This blood then pools in the lower body causing swelling, inflammation, aching, and, ultimately, venous ulcers. Other factors that may contribute to the appearance of venous ulcers on the legs include high blood pressure, obesity, blood clotting disorders, and trauma or injury to the veins.
What Treatments are Available for Venous Ulcers?
