Come to Wayne Vascular & Vein for Wound Care for Venous Ulcers
You may notice venous ulcers appearing on your legs if you have a venous insufficiency (when leg veins do not adequately transport blood back to your upper body). Venous insufficiency in Goldsboro, NC typically occurs when the valves in your veins malfunction and do not allow for normal blood flow patterns. When your veins do not work properly, they can cause blood to pool, or even leak out of the vein. This damages the localized tissue and creates an ulcer.
You may have an increased risk of venous ulcers in the instance that you have one of the following conditions in Goldsboro:
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Smoking habit
Venous ulcers are one of the most chronic wounds seen in wound care centers — and many of them are ones that recur. Don’t spend time waiting with dozens of other people for the proper care for your venous ulcers. Instead, receive the quick and efficient care you need by coming to Wayne Health Vascular & Vein Center in Goldsboro.
