Venous Leg Ulcer

People with Venous Leg Ulcer (VLU)

The chronic backup of blood due to unhealthy (incompetent) valves allows blood to pool in the lower leg, causing swelling. Chronic swelling interferes with the nutrition and oxygen supply to the skin. The skin becomes dry, flaky and darker in color. The skin is fragile and easily breaks with minor trauma, forming an open wound that becomes slow to heal.

Symptoms of venous ulcers:

  • Swelling of the ankle and lower leg
  • Dermatitis
  • Skin discoloration around and above the ankles
  • Open skin with moderate to heavy drainage

Medical compression stockings can help manage your condition.  Ask your physician if JOBST® UlcerCARETM is right for you.
