A case of varicose ulcer . Get a wedge biopsy from the ulcer to rule out malignancy, tuberculosis., syphilis. A colour Doppler study of lower limb vessels to rule out peripheral vascular disease and the extent of varicose veins. Unless varicose veins are not treated, ulcer will not heal First and foremost thing is to to definitive treatment of varicose veins. It can be either surgery Or a newer technique endovascular laser ablation of varicose veins. Once varicose veins are treated, ulcer will heal after following treatment. Adequate debridement required till healthy and red viable granulation tissue appears. Antibiotics - Tab linezolid 600 mg B.D for 2 weeks. Elevation of limb . Once ulcer shows signs of recovery, a SSG is the best possible option

Thanks sir

For now please do regular cleaning and dressings. Try debridase oint for dressings. Followed by foot elevation and soft compression. Once the cellulitis has settled, the varicose veins can be operated upon, after ruling out DVT. Followed by SSG either in the same sitting or a little later

It's a chronic venous ulcer in the gaiters zone .Bisgard s regime is followed for the management of such ulcers.. Along with the management of ulcer ,vericose veins should also be managed.debridement of necrotic tissue and regular dressing with chlorine water should be done . effective limb elevation and crepe bandage should be applied in distal to proximal direction to prevent the venous stasis.later on SSG should be planned to cover the wound.

Pain less ulcer,is the pt.diabetic has peripheral neuropathy,or must do a culture and sensitivity and use the appropriate antibiotics. Clean it with betadine, send tissue for biopsy and report to exclude malignancy. Once infection cleared obtained healthy granulation tissue go for skin graft,once malignancy excluded. Otherwise you can him till dooms day . One more bold unorthodox step one can take if the doctor. and pt both agreeable is to dress the ulcer by preparing a paste of raw papYa pulp and it will give a very healthy granulation tissue in no time. One can't do any harm by one application.

Ok sir
