Condition – Leg Ulcers

Leg Ulcers

Please be advised that this website contains graphic medical imagery

Venous leg ulcers affect a large proportion of the older community.

They often come on after a light knock to the ankle and fail to heel because of the venous disease.

They are can be  large, smelly and slow to heel, lasting for many years.

Treatment requires expert nursing care and consists of getting the wound clean and then stimulating wound skin cover as well as treating the underlying venous disease. This can involve using maggots
