Venous leg ulcers are debilitating, hard to heal wounds that can profoundly affect the patients’ physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing. These wounds have a high recurrence rate and are associated with pain, wound odor, and high levels of exudate and bioburden, with a large percentage becoming chronic. Current therapeutic approaches are multifaceted and focus on improved symptom management and wound healing, including compression therapy and advanced wound care.
