Vascular Ulcers


 

Vascular ulcers are a type of wound that can be caused by problems with the vascular system. They have the potential to create dangerous infection, which then increases risk for progression into chronic disease states such as gangrene and amputation!

These conditions may not heal normally leading them being more difficult than non-ulcerated skin elsewhere on your body; this would make it harder for you recover fully from an injury or illness

The best way to avoid aggravating vascular ulcers, is to try to prevent anything else happening like stress fractures (too much pressure), joint damage/osteoarthritis during exercise etc… Vascular ulcers develop when blood vessels become weak and burst under pressure from high fluid levels in the tissues around them.

Vascular ulcers are more likely to occur when blood vessels are damaged because of other health conditions, such as diabetes. Vascular ulcers may also result from chemotherapy or radiation therapy used to treat cancer due to its damaging effect on rapidly growing cells.

Vascular ulcers are most common in people who have had cancer, diabetes, or peripheral vascular disease. Vascular ulcers can be found on any part of the body, but are most common on the legs and feet.

Vascular ulcers are treated in a number of ways depending on their cause and severity. Vascular ulcers caused by cancer treatment may require more aggressive medical intervention than ulcers that are not cancer related.

Vascular ulcers that are caused by diabetes, high blood pressure, or peripheral vascular disease often benefit from more general treatment measures that help control the underlying causes of the ulcers.

Vascular ulcer treatment may be invasive (i.e., surgeries) or non-invasive (i.e., dressings), depending on the ulcer’s cause. Vascular ulcers respond well to treatment if detected early, but without intensive care can lead to amputation of affected body parts. Vascular ulcers are most commonly found on the legs and feet.
