Leg Ulcer Management Supplement

Practitioners must respond appropriately to venous leg ulcers to promote healing and prevent complications.

Venous leg ulcers (VLUs) are the most frequently occurring type of chronic wound, accounting for approximately 80-90 per cent of all lower extremity ulcers. VLUs are a big problem for both patients and health service resources. In the United Kingdom, venous leg ulceration alone has been estimated to cost the NHS £400m a year.

In the US, VLUs cause the loss of approximately two million work days per year. A thorough understanding of effective and best practice venous leg ulcer management is therefore imperative for all professionals working in wound care practice.
