Leg Ulcer

A leg ulcer (Ulcus crusis) is often the late effect of a long untreated vein problem. Out-patient therapy resistant leg ulcers are treated either in a conservative manner with an intensive ulcer treatment or also operative with the so called Shave Method.

By this method it is understood as a generous excision of the ulcer with a subsequent plastic skin cover (Mesh graft skin transplantation).


With conservative ulcer treatment an intensive wound therapy takes place, in particular compression treatment, this in combination with intensive physiotherapy.

The many veins in the ulcer or other ulcerated varicose veins become additionally desolate, this also with the use of foam sclerotherapy. And in most cases there is a very good healing possibility for the leg ulcer alone through these procedures.
