Varicose ulcer removal

Varicose ulcer removal

The first step in the proceure is for the ulcers to be measured. A probe test may be done to check the circulation. A specimen of the discharge is taken for the laboratory to test for the presence of infection. This will guide the antibiotic treatment that you may need in the future. The ulcers are cleaned. A non-stick dressing is applied. Four layers of special bandages are wrapped round your leg from the knee down to the base of your toes. The doctors arrange to see you again each week. You may be prescibed antibiotics if the laboratory test confirms an infection/bacteria is present in the ulcer.
