MUCH MORE
ABOUT GRAVITY THAN
HEART FAILURE

Lower extremity venous hypertension, or leg swelling, is an often underdiagnosed condition causing complications like clots, ulcers, pain and chronic life-threatening infections. While common among those who are obese, pregnant or have a family history, localized swelling may also be due to an expansion of body fluid in legs due to the effect of gravity. At this seminar Dr. Albaugh will present:

  • What causes leg swelling and ulcers.
  • Why legs swell during the day.
  • Leg ulcers and difficult wound diagnosis.
  • Treatment and procedure options available
