Wound care center at Milford Vascular Institute provides state-of-the-art treatments for non-healing wounds and ulcers caused by venous disease and arterial disorders.

We use the most advanced treatments to help restore healthy circulation to the wound, while at the same time applying the appropriate dressings, medications, and skin grafts to encourage quick healing.

Negative pressure applications such as wound VAC treatments and PICO wound management devices are also used to help minimize the risk of infection and accelerate the healing process.

WHY PROPER WOUND CARE IS CRUCIAL FOR YOUR HEALTH

Wound Care Center Milford CT

Poor circulation through the arms and legs can eventually result in skin ulcers that don’t heal.

Non-healing skin ulcers can result in long-term health problems including extreme pain, loss of function and mobility, and prolonged hospitalization.

Left untreated, irreparable skin damage and infections can occur, that can eventually lead to amputation.

That is why it is crucial to get proper wound care at a wound care center, as well as determine the root cause of the problem, and receive proper treatment.

Patient Tom Shares His Story About Having Venous Insufficiency Treatment and Wound Care at Milford Vascular Institute

What Causes Non-Healing Wounds?

LEFT UNTREATED, VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY CAN CAUSE SKIN ULCERS THAT DO NOT HEAL

Damaged vein valves in the legs can cause blood to pool in the lower legs, a condition known as venous insufficiency.

Venous insufficiency interferes with healthy blood flow from the lower extremities towards the heart, resulting in poor circulation through the legs.

The lack of healthy circulation in the legs can eventually cause the skin on the legs to die, resulting in the formation of venous ulcers. Without healthy blood circulation, venous ulcers can continue to worsen rather than heal.

What is Venous Insufficiency New Haven CT

LEFT UNTREATED, PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE CAN CAUSE NON-HEALING SKIN ULCERS

Clogged arteries in the arms and legs can prevent nutrients and oxygen to be delivered to the extremities, a condition known as peripheral arterial disease.

Blocked leg arteries interfere with healthy blood supply flowing from the heart to the lower legs, resulting in poor circulation in the legs, feet and toes.

The lack of healthy blood supply to the lower extremities can eventually cause the skin on the lower legs and feet to die, resulting in the formation of arterial ulcers, also called ischemic ulcers. Without healthy blood circulation, arterial ulcers can continue to worsen rather than heal, and can eventually require amputation.

DIABETES MAKES PEOPLE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO DEVELOPING NON-HEALING WOUNDS

Research suggests that 15% of people who have diabetes will experience diabetic foot ulcers in their lifetime.

Diabetes interferes with wound-healing and can quickly cause wounds or ulcers to become infected.

Diabetic foot ulcers typically develop on the bottom of the foot and on the toes.

Gangrene can set in quickly, resulting in the need for amputation.
