The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of standard venous ulcer care to standard venous ulcer care plus a cell based product made from the patients own blood. This prod...
The aim of this study is to analyze the effect of intravenous therapy with radiofrequency for superficial and perforating venous insufficiency versus compression therapy with multilayer ba...
This study compares the effect of adjuvant treatment of Low-level Light Therapy with conventional treatment in the tissue repair of venous ulcers in patients undergoing outpatient nursing ...
This study in venous leg ulcer (VLU) patients will evaluate the use of Cirvo™ therapy for the treatment of VLU when applied for a minimum of two hours daily for up to 12 weeks.
This is an observational, longitudinal real world registry of venous leg ulcers created from electronic health record data obtained in the course of clinical care. Data from certified elec...
Venous leg ulcers are open lesions between the knee and the ankle joint, which occur in the presence of venous insufficiency. There are theories to explain the causes of venous insufficiency, which ul...
In May 2018, BSN Medical hosted a symposium, 'The management of venous leg ulcers: the value of high-quality care', at the European Wound Management Association (EWMA) conference in Poland. It focused...
Venous ulcers or stasis ulcers account for 80% of lower extremity ulcerations. Approximately 1-2% of the population will suffer from the chronic debilitating condition, with chronic venous insufficien...
Venous leg ulceration is the most common form of leg ulceration, affecting 1.5% of the UK adult population. This was reviewed within the latest best practice statement (2016) which set out to create c...
The real mechanism for the development of the later stages of chronic venous insufficiency still remains unclear. Venous hypervolemia and microvascular ischemia have been reported to be the consequenc...
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
Ulceration of the skin and underlying structures of the lower extremity. About 90% of the cases are due to venous insufficiency (VARICOSE ULCER), 5% to arterial disease, and the remaining 5% to other causes.
Skin breakdown or ulceration caused by varicose veins in which there is too much hydrostatic pressure in the superficial venous system of the leg. Venous hypertension leads to increased pressure in the capillary bed, transudation of fluid and proteins into the interstitial space, altering blood flow and supply of nutrients to the skin and subcutaneous tissues, and eventual ulceration.
Rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. It is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. Sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.
Research concerned with establishing costs of nursing care, examining the relationships between nursing services and quality patient care, and viewing problems of nursing service delivery within the broader context of policy analysis and delivery of health services (from a national study, presented at the 1985 Council on Graduate Education for Administration in Nursing (CGEAN) meeting).
