Abstract

Abstract Varicose ulcers have long been considered one of the most troublesome conditions confronting the general practitioner and to some extent even the specialist. The mass of literature on the subject, giving a variety of modes of treatment and technic as numerous as the publications themselves, shows the difficulties which the physician has to face. One of the most comprehensive contributions to the subject has been made by Nobl,1 whose monograph so completely covers the etiology and pathology of varicose ulcers that it does not come within the scope of this paper, which is devoted to practical suggestions for effective treatment, to discuss the matter in detail again. In order to clear up a varicose ulcer it is necessary (1) to eliminate the cause, (2) to stimulate the granulation of the ulcer and (3) to improve the circulation of the blood and the lymph. If the ulcer is not caused References 1. Nobl, G.: Der variköse Symptomenkomplex , Vienna, Urban & Schwarzenberg, 1918. 2. Isaak, L.: Feinsilber zur Ulcus-cruris-Therapie , Dermat.
