An arterial ulcer starts with a break in the skin. When the skin is broken, the opening allows bacteria to infect the underlying tissue. In a healthy adult, the injury is minor and heals within a week or two. When an underlying condition primarily, poor circulation is present, the injury does not heal. Arterial ulcers occur on the legs and feet. They can take months to heal. In some cases, they never do. Without proper treatment, serious complications can develop that include infection, tissue necrosis, and amputation of the affected limb. In this course, we will review current trends and evidence-based practices in the prevention and treatment of arterial ulcers.
