Global approach to treating chronic cutaneous venous lesions: controlling both bacterial loads and local pain

Furlini S., Somà K.

ASL 7, Torino


Wound bed preparation today represents the accepted behavior model for managing chronic cutaneous lesions. Via its 4 phases, providing us with both a reasonable and simple approach as well as permitting formulating a “local diagnosis”, via which we may better direct therapeutic efforts. Using combined medications more completely complies to the WBP’s dictates: controlling bacterial loads, correcting and managing necrotic load secretions can today all be managed in a complementary manner and Urgotul SAg® is one new medication that can be well applied in this context. Often bacterial colonization accompanies an increase or unexpected appearance of pain symptoms. Medications can cause further uneasiness for the patient. This research, by analyzing the colonized venous ulcer’s clinical aspects, evaluating a group of 20 patients, shows how carefully globally appraising the ulcer problem facilitates optimal results, regarding both repairing tissue and comforting the patient.
