Abstract

Selecting the appropriate treatment for venous leg ulcerations is essential for optimal wound healing and patient quality of life. Compression therapy remains the mainstay of treatment for these wounds. Compression methods should be carefully selected and tailored for compatibility with patients' daily life. Pain management should not be neglected. When response to compression therapy is limited, adjuvant therapy such as medication, débridement, or surgical procedures should be considered on an individual basis.
