    Venous leg ulcers (VLU)

    VLUs are a common lower extremity wound. With the onset of COVID-19, outpatient clinic visits dropped dramatically and some patients with VLUs were no longer receiving regular assessments and treatment. Interruptions in care can stall and deteriorate healing. Help patients stay on track by focusing on best practices for skin and wound management and incorporating compression therapy as the gold standard of VLU care.
