Venous trophic ulcers
Trophic ulcer - a defect in the skin or mucous membranes that occurs after the rejection of necrotic tissue due to violations of its blood supply or innervation. Such ulcers are characterized by long flow with constant relapses, they are difficult to treat. Most venous ulcers is a complication of acquired or congenital diseases, damage to blood vessels, nerves, soft tissue and bone. Causes of venous ulcers can be venous insufficiency (eg, thrombophlebitis, against the background of varicose veins), a sharp narrowing of the arteries (eg, due to atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, etc.), violation of lymph drainage (elephantiasis), violation of the innervation of tissues ( in trauma, certain diseases), with chronic skin diseases (eg, eczema), trauma (burns, frostbite), etc.
Trophic ulcers, which occur against a background of varicose veins and thrombophlebitis are the most common type of venous ulcers.
These sores usually appear on the inner and outer surface of the lower third of the tibia. In this case, due to stagnation of venous blood is broken food tissue is its destruction with the formation of ulcers, and later joins the infection. The characteristic form of trophic ulcers are caused by a background of hypertension. They are usually located symmetrically on both sides at the front or posteroexternal of the leg and have high morbidity.
Ulcers appear edema leg, heaviness and cramps in the calf muscles, itching, burning and heat on the skin surface. Condition improves, unless of course give the exalted position. Also on the skin can be seen meandering network of thin veins, spots of blue-purple skin thickens, becomes painful, hard, shiny and stiffness. Disturbed lymph drainage (she starts to seep through the skin in the form of droplets). Then gradually die off and the fabric is formed by an ulcer.
Trophic ulcers occur due to atherosclerosis, obliterative endarteritis, hypertension, chronic shortfall in tissues of nutrients and oxygen. All this leads to necrosis and decay of tissue cells and the formation of ulcers. Also causes of ulcers may be hypothermia, a variety of injuries, the wearing of compressive leg shoes, etc. These sores are usually formed in the heel, the foot and big toe. Their size is small, with thick irregular edges. These sores are very painful, as is constantly injured while walking.
In contrast, ulcers in venous insufficiency of the pain persists even after giving limb elevated position. To eliminate trophic ulcers primarily provides treatment of the underlying disease that caused the complication in the form of trophic ulcers - are treated venous insufficiency, arterial disease, etc.
At the same time, we treat ulcers. Patient limbs attached to an elevated position, for the rejection of necrotic tissue and wound cleansing are used enzymes that dissolve them. Once the ulcer cleared, apply an ointment to promote healing. Appointed by the various physical therapy procedures.
Surgical treatment of venous ulcers is considered the most effective, as during surgery usually resolves the cause of the trophic ulcer.
