Ulcers

Varicose ulcers can become a major problem for many varicose vein sufferers.

 

Venous leg ulcers can require constant dressings and take weeks or months to heal. It is important that the cause of the ulcers is treated, which is the abnormal reverse flow in the varicose veins.

The best treatment for varicose ulcers is therefore Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) or Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy(UGS) of the varicose veins. This restores the normal venous circulation through the deep veins and allows normalisation of nutrition in the skin which in turn allows ulcers to heal.
