Venous leg ulcers (VLUs) represent a significant epidemiologic and economic burden on patients and the health care system. Evidence shows that rates of successful VLU healing increase with the use of compression therapy, and multicomponent bandage systems are more effective than single-component systems for this purpose.

This well-referenced white paper, sponsored by Urgo Medical, describes both the challenges of using different compression modalities and the principles of good compression therapy. The guide then discusses the UrgoK2 system, which promotes maximum adherence to compression therapy and superior clinical outcomes for patients with VLUs. Wound care professionals will find this white paper useful when considering the optimal compression system for their patients.

This white paper discusses the following topics:

Epidemiology and economics of VLUs
Evidence base for compression therapy
Practical challenges in compression therapy use
Need for continuous, consistent, and comfortable compression
Ankle-brachial index as compression therapy prerequisite
UrgoK2 system outcomes in diabetic and nondiabetic patients
