Venous ulcus cruris
The venous leg ulcer is typically a very heavily weeping wound. The main problem is to absorb large amounts of exudate and channel it so that it does not overflow to the wound edges.
The heavily weeping wound is filled with LIGASANO® white and also covered with LIGASANO® white, overlapping the wound edges by at least 2 cm. If the change is made in good time, the overflow of the wound edges is counteracted. Excess exudate is absorbed. It may be advisable to use additional superabsorbents.
The accompanying treatment (compression bandage, compression stocking) is carried out as usual.
Arterial ulcus cruris
Consequences of arterial circulatory disorders usually begin below the knee. If there is no arterial occlusion, the LIGASANO® bandage can provide valuable services.
The leg or foot lesion is locally treated with LIGASANO® white. The circulation-promoting effect is produced by the LIGASANO® bandage (300x10x0.3 cm).
The LIGASANO® bandage is applied in 5 or 10 cm width like a normal padded bandage. They achieve both padding and stimulation of blood circulation at the same time. The LIGASANO® bandage does not tend to slip, but can be fixed with a mesh tube or better with LIGAMED® Fix if required.
Ulcus cruris mixtum
The arterial venous leg ulcer is particularly difficult to treat because on the one hand the necessary blood inflow is missing and on the other hand it is hindered by compression measures due to the lack of outflow.
The wound, which usually weeps, is filled with LIGASANO® white and also with LIGASANO® white. The wound edges are covered with at least 2 cm of overlap. If the change is made in good time, the overflow of the wound edges is counteracted.
The LIGASANO® bandage is applied 5 or 10 cm wide like a normal padded bandage under the compression bandage or stocking. They achieve cushioning and blood circulation at the same time.
