Leg & Ankle Ulcers
and Skin Discoloration
This is a more serious form of vein disease which greatly affects quality of life. Most people with venous stasis have swelling, discoloration and may have ulcers in the ankle area. The skin may feel hard with red or brown coloring around the ankle. Ulcers are a serious result of high pressure in the veins. This problem can be significantly improved with procedures that decrease the pressure in the veins. These procedures can speed the healing of ulcers and reduce the chance of recurrence.
