Chronic venous leg ulcers come with cost and morbidity for patients. A leg ulcer is a long-lasting (chronic) sore that takes more than four to six weeks to heal. They usually develop on the inside of the leg, just above the ankle. The symptoms of a venous leg ulcer include pain, itching and swelling in the affected leg. For patients with chronic venous leg ulcers, autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is safe and effective, with highly significant improvement in ulcer size compared to conventional treatment.
This patient has been in-and-out of the hospital multiple times with this wound caused by poor blood flow. Watch as Dr. Wagner performs PRP therapy treatment for their chronic venous ulcer.
