medi Therapy Concept Leg Ulcer

Effective therapy chain for treating leg ulcers. Patient-individual treatment in three steps.

medi Therapy Concept Leg Ulcer
  1. Step: Wound debridement

    Wound cleansing is an essential part of wound treatment. The aim is to remove factors that inhibit wound healing. Learn more.

  2. Step: Therapy for the underlying disease

    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: Prevention of recurrence

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

Step 1

Wound debridement

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

With UCS Debridement, medi offers a highly effective wound cleansing cloth. The combination of autolytic and mechanical debridement provides an effective and largely painless cleansing.

Step 2

Therapy for the underlying disease

Treatment of the underlying disease is necessary for the wound to heal. In the case of venous leg ulcers, the underlying disease is venous hypertension, which is treated with consequent compression therapy.

In most cases a phleboedema is occuring additionally. With the adjustable compression wrap circaid juxtacures medi offers an alternative to traditional bandaging to decongest the phleboedema in the initial phase of treating venous leg ulcers.

Once the oedema has been sufficiently decongested, the patient can switch to the well-established compression stocking system mediven ulcer kit for a 24-hour compression therapy until the wound has completely healed. For those patients who are not able to apply compression stockings medi also offers a solution: circaid juxtalite.

Step 3

Prevention of recurrence

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.
