What Should I Do After the Venous Stasis Ulcers Diagnosis?

The mainstay of initial treatment of venous stasis ulcers is compression therapy.

Multi-component compression therapy is slightly superior to single-component therapy.The various types of dressings available for managing venous stasis ulcers are similarly efficacious.

Systemic therapies such as aspirin and pentoxifylline improve healing rates whereas antibiotics don’t. Cadexomer iodine, a topical antiseptic, improves ulcer healing but may not be feasible in most clinical settings because of the frequent dressing changes required.
