Wounds treated with Legacy Medical Consultant’s product portfolio

Diabetic foot ulcers result from skin tissue breaking down and exposing the layers underneath.

Venous leg ulcers occur when leg veins do not push blood back up towards the heart as well as they should, resulting in blood backing up in veins and building up pressure. The increased pressure and excess fluid in the affected area can then cause an open sore to form.

Lacerations pass through all layers of the skin into underlying tissues such as muscle or bone.

Dehiscence is a common complication of surgical wounds involving the reopening of a surgical incision along the suture.

Pressure ulcers are injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin.

Phases of Wound Healing

The wound healing process consists of four phases: hemostatic; inflammatory; proliferative; and remodeling. In combination with proper wound care products, our body’s systems work together throughout these four phases to repair and replace devitalized tissue.
