Ulceration to both feet and anterior ankles
Previous | Next Next


A 62-year-old African American female was referred to the wound care center with ulceration to both of her feet and anterior ankles

Electrical/flame burn to neck


The wounds were previously treated with operative debridements, followed by wound VAC application. Initial treatment at our center
included debridement of the wounds with incisional skin biopsy,
followed by application of a split thickness skin graft. The right foot
healed uneventfully, while the left skin graft did not take

Fascial excision of chest

The pathology report suggested the etiology to be vasculitis (unidentified type). At this point, tendons were exposed in
the wound, and the decision was made for further debridement with excision of the tendons
