Case study: a unique approach to compliance in a patient with venous ulcers.

J Vasc Nurs; 19(2): 52-4, 2001 Jun.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-11395718
Lower extremity venous ulcers affect 500,000 to 700,000 Americans, with a 10-week outpatient treatment cost of $1327 to $5289. Recurrence rates are reported as 57% within 10.4 months. Many types of treatments are available, but the most successful treatment continues to be the most basic-elevation and compression. Innovative ideas to increase patient compliance can be the key to successful therapy.
