How Do Leg Ulcers Happen?

If venous reflux disease progresses, it can result in leg ulcers. The skin can breakdown forming an ulcer that is difficult to heal. These ulcers are a result of increased venous pressure and inflammatory reactions that occur in people with chronic venous reflux disease.

All patients with ulcers should be evaluated by an ultrasound exam to determine if there are specific veins that can be treated to alleviate the venous reflux disease. Eliminating the abnormal veins will help heal current ulcers and reduce the recurrence of future ulcers.
