Neuropathic leg ulcers (NLUs) affect more than 10% of diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy and represent the most common cause of ulceration of the leg in these patients. Vulnamin® gel could improve the outcomes of NLUs when used together with elastocompression.
- Thirty patients affected by NLU
- Randomized into 2 groups, both treated with 4-layer elastocompressive bandaging: group A were topically treated with the application of Vulnamin® gel, group B received only the inert gel vehicle.
- Healing rate at 3 months was evaluated as the primary endpoint.
- Healing time, reduction in ulcer area and ulceration score in 4 weeks.
- Number of infective complications, and overall satisfaction of
