Factors associated with recurrence of venous leg ulcers: a survey and retrospective chart review

Initiatives -
Chronic venous leg ulcers have a significant impact on older individuals' well-being and health care resources. Unfortunately after healing, up to 70% recur. Thus, the aim of the present study is to examine the relationships between leg ulcer recurrence and physical activity, compression, nutrition, health, psychosocial indicators and self-care activities in order to provide information for preventive strategies. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study. *
