Venous Stasis Ulcers
Venous stasis ulcers develop as the venous valvular system becomes incompetent due to long hours of standing or the result of DVT that damages the valvular system.
Impaired valves leads to venous hypertension, swelling, discoloration, which further decreases epidermal perfusion leading to ulceration. Daily pneumatic compression therapy reduces edema and venous hypertension, improves perfusion, accelerates ulcer healing, and helps prevent recurrence.
2 – 3, one-hour therapy sessions per day.
