What Is a Venous Stasis Ulcer?

A venous stasis ulcer is an open wound due to a malfunction in the valves within a vein, leading to increased pressure in the veins. This can cause the vein to leak. The ulcers mostly occur on the lower legs and often take a considerable amount of time to heal, sometimes extending for weeks, months or longer. The ulcers can be painful, affecting mobility and quality of life.

Veins carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart from body tissues and organs. To aid in the flow of blood, veins have valves that prevent the backflow of the deoxygenated blood. A failed valve hinders blood circulation, leading to pooling and increased blood pressure in the veins.

At the Vein Care Center in New York City and New Jersey, vein specialists, led by Dr. Jonathan Arad, diagnose and treat a wide range of venous conditions. Using individualized treatment plans, the team relies on advanced medical techniques in venous ulcer treatment and other conditions affecting your veins.
