Venous Stasis Ulcers
After many years of untreated venous reflux, red blood cells are deposited in the skin near the ankle. Even worse, as time goes by, open sores can develop.
These are called Venous Stasis Ulcers.
Venous stasis ulcers are often misdiagnosed as insect bites or simple skin allergies. These venous stasis ulcers are very resistant to treatment and require a lot of patience and dedication to therapy.
Over the years, many treatments have been developed for the treatment of venous ulcers but first and foremost is to see a knowledgeable physician.
The surgeons at Vegas Valley Vein Institute are experts in wound care.
These ulcers require careful, well thought out treatment plans, and most often will improve with the treatment of the underlying venous reflux.
