About Venous Wounds

Venous wounds, also known as venous insufficiency ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, or varicose vein wounds, are leg ulcers caused by compromised blood flow in the leg veins. When blood cannot efficiently return to the heart, it accumulates and creates pressure in the veins. This leads to damage to the surrounding skin tissue, resulting in the formation of ulcers. At Wound and Burn Centers of America, we specialize in understanding and treating these complex wounds, offering advanced therapies to promote healing and prevent complications.

Signs & Symptoms Of Venous Wounds:

  • Persistent leg ulcers, typically located around the ankle or lower leg
  • Open sores with irregular edges and a shallow appearance
  • Discolored skin around the ulcer, often with a reddish or brownish tint
  • Swelling (edema) in the affected leg, especially toward the end of the day
  • Pain or discomfort in the leg, ranging from aching to a burning sensation
  • Itching or a feeling of heaviness in the leg
  • Skin tightness or tightness of the calf muscles
  • Varicose veins or visible twisted veins on the leg
  • Slow-healing wounds that do not show signs of improvement over time

Venous Wounds FAQs

What are other names for venous wounds?

Venous wounds are also known as venous Insufficiency ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, and varicose vein wounds.

What is a venous wound?

A venous wound is a type of leg ulcer that develops due to impaired blood flow or circulation in the leg veins. These wounds occur when blood pools in the veins, leading to increased pressure and subsequent damage to the skin tissue. Prompt treatment is crucial to prevent complications and promote healing.

How do venous ulcers form?

Venous ulcers form when there is a disruption in the flow of oxygen-poor blood from the extremities back to the heart. This causes blood to accumulate and exert pressure within the veins, resulting in damage to the surrounding skin tissue. Over time, the damaged tissue develops into an ulcer, requiring specialized treatment for healing.

What causes venous wounds?

Venous wounds in Los Angeles require urgent treatment so that they do not get worse over time. Venous wounds are primarily caused by conditions that affect the intricate valves within your veins responsible for maintaining blood circulation. These valves play a crucial role in propelling blood against gravity, ensuring it reaches the heart efficiently. When venous diseases compromise these valves, blood flow becomes impaired, leading to the formation of ulcers. Furthermore, venous wounds can be triggered by venous obstructions, such as blockages caused by blood clots, or varicose veins.

What is the value of treating a venous ulcer?

Venous ulcers don’t heal on their own. The longer you live with them, the greater the likelihood of permanent tissue damage. The damage can spread and lead to infection, which could result in limb loss (amputation) or threaten your life.
