Abstract

In wound care, the management of leg ulcers requires that the clinician must always consider a venous, arterial or mixed aetiology. Most wound care practitioners are also familiar with the ever present challenge of patients who need to wear compression, but are non-adherent. A common belief in the community and even among clinicians is that patients with leg ulcers need to wear “tight stockings” for optimal healing of wounds, without taking the vascular status into consideration.
