Compression Therapy Should Not Be a Burden
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.
