It is common practice that compression is the "gold standard" treatment for addressing venous insufficiency. However, we must look beyond the simple choice of compression and further toward the choice of a compression system that is most suited to the patient's lifestyle, one that can provide consistent, continuous, and comfortable compression throughout the patient's wear-time no matter the lifestyle.
In addition to this, there are so many variations in treatment options for venous leg ulcers (VLUs) themselves that the options can be endless and daunting. One must consider how to properly address the chronic ulcers that may arise and how to choose a treatment path aligned with wound bed preparation to allow compression to work at its full potential.
In this product navigator, we will introduce a simple and streamlined approach to the standard treatment for VLUs: cleanse, dress, compress. Dr. Wahab will present data behind the importance of being selective in your choice of cleansing, dressing, and compressing. Along with the research presented, she will highlight a few cases from her own practice illustrating the benefits of this standard approach to VLUs.
