What Causes Venous Ulcers?

Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency causes blood to pool in your veins and increases the pressure on those valves. Over time, the rising pressure ruptures the veins, and the leaking fluid breaks down nearby skin.

Damaged Veins

Damaged veins from surgery, inflammation, infection, or an acute injury can affect blood circulation and increase pressure on the veins, resulting in a venous ulcer.

Additional Risk Factors

Certain factors can increase the possibility of developing venous ulcers, including:

  • Varicose veins
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Blockage of lymph vessels
  • Aging
  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetics/Family history
