Venous Leg Ulcers
Venous leg ulcers occur in approximately 2% of the population and place a large burden on the healthcare budget of the US. A recent randomized trial shares that early intervention of the underlying vein condition will help not only shorted the course of wound care but is also cost effective. We know that without treatment the risk of recurrence is 30% per year. With treatment that risk is cut by half.
