Vascular Ulcers

Vascular ulcers are open wounds on the skin that do not heal or that keep coming back once they do heal. They occur because there is not enough blood being supplied to the skin to heal injuries that may be caused by minor trauma or pressure.

See "Arterial Ulcers" and "Venous Ulcers".
