Sigvaris Ulcer X- Kit Short Length Compression Stocking offers quicker healing rates compared to conventional bandaging. The Ulcer X kit consists of: 2 Liners and 1 Traditional Stocking. The low pressure under liner gives 15- 20mmHg and an over stocking (Traditional 503) which gives 23-32 mmHg. It was also found to give the highest interface pressure and to be the easiest to get on and off. The liner has a cotton blend against the skin. The Sigvaris Liner has been developed specifically for wearing together with the Sigvaris Traditional Compression Stocking. This combination ensures the expected medical effect in the treatment of Venous Ulcers. The liner should be worn at night, but the Sigvaris Traditional Compression Stocking must be removed.

Sigvaris Ulcer X- Kit Short Length Compression Stocking 

  • Traditional: 70% Polyamid, 30% Elastodien
  • Liners: 62% Polyamid, 26% Elasthan, 12% Cotton
  • Indications:  Leg Ulcer Therapy (ulcus cruris venosum) after treatment of the wound.
  • Style:  Short, Open Toe
  • Ulcer X is a compression stocking kit comprising two components 

    - One understocking with low pressure (15-20 mmHg)

    - One overstocking with 22-35 mmHg of pressure

    - The combination of understocking and overstocking exerts a total pressure of 45 mmHg on the ankle

 

Sigvaris Ulcer X Kit is a dual stocking system. It consists of a low-compression underline and a overstocking. The underline is made with an inner layer of cotton and a smooth exterior that allows easy donning of the overstocking. The underline keeps the wound dressing in place at night, helping the patient to rest comfortably. During daily activities, the overstocking provides the necessary compression needed to heal the venous ulcer. The overstocking is recommended for removal at night, but the low-compression under stocking should be worn during sleep or while recumbent.

 

What causes a venous ulcer?

When suffering from chronic venous insufficiency, the vein wall becomes stretched and weakens and the valves do not close. This starts the cascade of reflux and pooling which does not correct itself and only continues to worsen over time (another cause of valve incompetency is a post-traumatic damage). In consequence, the small nutritional vessels of the skin are damaged causing oedema, inflammation, and hardening of the tissue and malnutrition of the skin. On these preconditions, a venous ulcer may easily develop.

Venous leg ulcers are often chronic and difficult to heal. They often appear on the inside of the leg (medial) above the ankle. They are shallow and can be painful. Swelling in the lower leg often occurs. There is often brownish discoloration of the skin due to the leakage of the iron-containing pigment in red blood cells (hemosiderin) into the tissue. The wound itself is often irregular and there may be weeping discharge as the tissue fluid seeps from the wound. There may also be indications of infection.  Caution regarding arterial ulcers: approximately 10-20% of ulcers are arterial ulcers. In addition to venous diagnostics with duplex ultrasound, the arterial circulation should be controlled in each ulcer patient.

 

What is the treatment for a venous leg ulcer?

The primary treatment includes controlling a possible infection and healing the wound. A wound heals slowly and may take many months, depending of its size and other risk factors. Managing pain and minimizing the oedema as well as protecting the healthy skin are also important during treatment. Steps to improve venous function should be taken. Traditionally, short-stretch compression bandages are worn initially until secretion has reduced. In most of the small and medium size ulcers the compression can be continued with a compression stocking or a special ulcer stocking system (SIGVARIS Ulcer X) at 30-40 mmHg until healing. Your physician will be able to assess your condition and prescribe the most effective treatment.

Nearly 80% of venous leg ulcers can be healed with good wound management. The recurrence rate of a venous ulcer after treatment can vary depending on the type of procedure and patient compliance. Studies show that recurrence can range as low as 26-28% but it also reported as high as 69%.² Once the leg ulcer has healed, the patient should wear a minimum of 30-40 mmHg SIGVARIS medical graduated compression stocking for life to promote non-recurrence of the ulcer.
