  1. Step 1: Assess and clean

    Holistic assessment of the limb is essential in order to plan the appropriate treatment. Wound cleansing is neccessary to remove factors that inhibit wound healing. Learn more.

  2. Step 2: Treat

    The underlying disease needs to be treated so that the wound can heal. In the case of venous leg ulcers, the underlying disease is chronic venous insufficiency. The basic treatment, according to the guidelines, is compression therapy. Learn more.

  3. Step 3: Prevent

    To maintain the long-term treatment success and to prevent a recurrence of the wound, compression therapy must be continued. Learn more.

Step 1

Assess and clean

Cleansing of the wound is essential in wound care: Only a clean wound can heal.

Step 2

Treat

Treating the underlying disease is necessary for the wound to heal. In the case of venous leg ulcers, the underlying cause is venous hypertension, which is reduced with compression therapy.

In most cases venous oedema is present. Using adjustable compression such as juxtalite or juxtacures, medi is able to offer an alternative to traditional bandaging to reduce the venous oedema and the wetness in the ulcer itself.

Once the venous oedema has been addressed, the patient has the option to switch to the well-established dual layer compression system mediven ulcer kit which can offer 24 hours compression therapy until the wound is completely healed. For those patients who are not able to apply compression stockings, medi has the juxtalite as the perfect solution.

Step 3

Prevent

Even after the wound has healed, the underlying chronic venous insufficiency still persists. In order to ensure the long-term success of the therapy and to prevent a recurrence of the wound, consequent compression therapy must be continued.

medi offers the appropriate stockings for modern compression therapy. Depending on the tendency for oedema, round or flat knitted medical compression stockings are used. Many colours, pleasant wearing comfort and medical efficacy ensure that the medical compression stockings are the perfect choice for prevention of recurrence.

Even for those patients who are not able to apply or tolerate medical compression hosiery medi offers an alternative – circaid juxtalite.
