Venous ulceration is the most common type of chronic leg ulceration. Venous ulcers arise from venous valve incompetence and calf muscle pump insufficiency which leads to venous stasis and hypertension. The active management of leg ulcers may be required over many months or years and may be carried out by several different healthcare professionals. The mainstay of treatment of a venous ulcer involves compression therapy to reduce venous hypertension. Dressings are required to prevent the bandage or compression hosiery from adhering to the wound. We have reviewed the basic and new treatments that may improve care of venous leg ulcers.
