Lower extremity ulcers occur in more than 1% of adults in the United States. Arterial ulcers, which are less common than venous ulcers, account for approximately 10% of leg ulcers. The pathophysiology of arterial ulcers is complex, and treatment is often difficult.

This white paper, sponsored by Hy-Tape International, begins by describing the epidemiology and pathophysiology of arterial lower extremity ulcers. The discussion then turns to identification and assessment of these ulcers and includes risk factors and wound characteristics. The guide also contains a section on strategies for successful treatment of arterial leg ulcers.

Wound care professionals will appreciate this overview of arterial leg ulcers and will find the information on clinical treatment of these ulcers especially useful.

This white paper contains information on the following topics related to arterial leg ulcers:

Epidemiology
Pathophysiology and risk factors
Identification and assessment
Treatment strategies
Use of specialized dressings and advanced wound care therapies
