What Causes Venous Ulcers?

Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency leads to blood pooling in your veins, greatly increasing the pressure within those veins. That eventually causes veins to rupture and their containing fluid to break down nearby skin.

Damaged Veins

Damaged veins are another leading cause of venous ulcers, whether from surgery, inflammation, infection, or other injury.

Additional Risk Factors

Certain factors can increase your likelihood of developing venous ulcers. These include:

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