Wound Care

A venous ulcer, also called a leg ulcer, is a chronic, slow-to-heal wound on the leg or foot. Leg ulcers typically appear near the ankle or on the lower calf and are caused by poor circulation and weakened veins. When the veins fail to pump blood back to the heart properly, the blood accumulates in the lower extremities, causing the tissue around the vein to break down. The primary concern is lowering venous pressure back to normal, which can be achieved through one of the vein treatments available at the Vein Care Center.

Other methods of treatment may also include wound care at the Vein Care Center. These appointments include cleaning, debriding, dressing the wound, and applying compression bandages. Medications may need to be prescribed to aid in the healing process, including antibiotics if the leg ulcer is infected.

EPIFIX is a dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane allograft. EPIFIX sheets provide a semi-permeable protective barrier that supports the healing cascade and protects the wound bed to aid in the development of granulation tissue in acute and chronic closures. EPIFIX provides a biocompatible human extracellular matrix and retains 300+ regulatory proteins to aid in wound healing.

Venous Insufficiency

In a perfectly functioning circulatory system, the heart pumps oxygen-rich blood through the arteries, and the veins return the blood to the heart. The veins rely on a system of valves to keep the blood moving in the right direction. Sometimes, these valves fail – causing the blood to pool in the lower extremities and causing a tremendous amount of pressure in the veins. This can lead to bulging varicose veins or spider veins, conditions that affect millions of people worldwide.
