Leg Ulcer cure for Christmas!!
This lady came to The Whiteley Clinic in August 2016 with a left leg ulcer. She had had a leg ulcer for 214 months. District nurses had been using compression bandages for 14 months with no improvement.
Despite the NICE Clinical Guidelines, she had not been referred for a vascular opinion nor a venous duplex ultrasound scan.
She had previously had venous surgery done somewhere else with no effect.
So she came to The Whiteley Clinic looking for a leg ulcer cure.
The patient saw one of our consultant vein specialists. She then had a high-resolution duplex ultrasound scan taking 45 minutes. This was performed by a The Whiteley Clinic trained vascular scientist. This scan showed 2 veins that had not been treated adequately previously. It also showed 2 incompetent perforators that the previous surgeon had not treated.
Following The Whiteley Protocol, she underwent Endovenous Laser of the remaining veins and TRLOP of the perforators. This started the ulcer healing. Two months later she had ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy.
Two months later, just in time for Christmas, the ulcer was healed.
Her life is transformed. No ulcer, no dressings, no compression bandaging and getting back to normal walking.
The Whiteley Protocol is an approach to diagnosing and treating varicose veins and venous conditions.
Developed by Mark Whiteley and his research team over 20 years, it is research based and continually updated.
By following The Whiteley Protocol, all doctors in The Whiteley Clinic can get the same excellent results for their patients.
