Venous Leg Ulcer Causes and Treatment

Are you or a loved one experiencing persistent wounds on the lower leg?  Despite their unknown history of trauma these wounds may be more than just surface-level injuries.  Wounds on the lower leg could be venous leg ulcers.  Many patients do not know venous leg ulcer causes and treatment options.  These are common yet often overlooked consequence of venous insufficiency and varicose veins. In such cases, seeking help from expert vein specialists is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment. If you’re in Oregon or Washington, consider turning to Inovia Vein Specialty Centers, where we specialize in evidence-based therapies, including radiofrequency ablation of the saphenous vein, Venaseal, Varithena and sclerotherapy, with the goal of achieving rapid and sustained healing.

Understanding Venous Leg Ulcers:

Venous leg ulcers are wounds that develop due to venous insufficiency, a condition where the veins fail to efficiently return blood to the heart. This often leads to increased pressure in the veins, causing them to bulge and become varicose. Over time, the skin around these varicose veins may break down, resulting in ulcers, typically found on the lower legs and ankles.

The Role of Varicose Veins as a Venous Leg Ulcer Cause:

Varicose veins, a common symptom of venous insufficiency, contribute to the development of leg ulcers.  Also, sometimes no varicose veins are visible on the skin surface.   Basically it is important to appreciate that varicose veins may or may not be seen on the skin.
