Arterial Wound Treatment in Greenville & Dallas, TX
An arterial wound or ulcer is typically caused by narrowed arteries that decrease blood flow to the wound. Arterial ulcers occur when blood cannot flow sufficiently into the lower extremities, such as the legs and feet. When the skin and underlying tissue in the legs and feet are deprived of oxygen-rich blood, the tissue starts to die off, and the skin begins to break, forming an open wound.
Arterial wounds are non-healing wounds that take a very long time to heal. They require different specialized treatments to ensure a speedy recovery and proper healing.
