Leg ulcers affect a large number of patients in the UK. The most common reason for this due to venous problems such as varicose veins or previous deep vein thrombosis. The second most cause is due to problems with the blood supply to the legs.
At the Birmingham Vascular Clinic we can look for the common causes of leg ulcers and then tailor the treatment according to your needs. We can offer minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins if they are the cause of the leg ulcers. If the cause of the ulcer is a problem with your circulation we are able to offer treatment such as angioplasty which can improve the blood supply. This can be performed under both general and local anaesthetic.
