What is the most cost-effective method for treating venous stasis ulcers?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Compression therapy is effective and reduces the overall costs of venous ulcers. Medical compression stockings appear to be more effective than bandages for this purpose. Pentoxifylline given with compression therapy further speeds healing (SOR: A, systematic review of RCTs). Aspirin may also speed healing (SOR: B, single RCT).
