VENOUS ULCER

Laser and Injections for an ulcer present for 13 years. This is the extreme end of varicose vein disease.

This 66 year old patient presented with a venous ulcer on his left lower limb present for 13 years on a background of Hepatitis C and history of IVDU. He had refused surgery for the ulcer and was non-compliant with stockings over the years. Clinically assessment revealed an unhealed ulcer with signs of Chronic Venous Insufficiency. Assessment revealed clear left great saphenous incompetence with a tributary directly feeding the ulcer. Endovenous Laser Ablation was performed in conjunction with foam sclerotherapy in 2 sessions at the Vein Institute over 2 months. There was mild phlebitis which settled with nurofen gel after the laser procedure but otherwise no complications.
