    Understanding Venous Ulcers. Venous Hypertension, Leg Swelling, Pain, Treatment and Vein Doctors

    Venous ulcers are wounds or open sores on the lower extremities, which are very slow to heal and often reoccur. They affect over 500,000 people in the United States and account for 80-90% of all leg ulcers.    They are associated with venous valvular insufficiency or may be a complication of a post-thrombotic syndrome (blood clots) but the pathway to venous ulcers is venous hypertension and the underlying associated inflammatory process.  The patient may suffer from pain, infection and disfigurement.


    What Are The Risk Factors?

    The risk factors and consequences of suffering with vein problems should no longer remain the life threatening issue that they once were. Efficient and safe treatment options are becoming more widely accepted as necessary specialty procedures.

    Vein treatment involves the procedures and techniques used in treating varicose veins, spider veins and vein disease. It is a fairly new addition to the list of medical specialties that are available. Extensive training and knowledge are essential to the proper care and treatment of conditions involving the veins.

    What Are the Risk Factors?

    Advances in vein treatment technology have grown rapidly due to the increasing number of sufferers with vein problems. The risk factors in untreated vein problems can be painful and life threatening.
