The smallest injuries can lead to a wound that does not heal. A minor injury, such as a knock from a car door or gardening injury, could lead to a break in the skin, resulting in a lower limb wound which may struggle to heal. As a result of a wound patients may exercise less. This means that the calf muscle pump, which supports the vein system in transporting the blood in the direction of the heart, slows the venous return from already insufficient veins. A break in the skin can increase the risk of infection, which can further delay healing and cause unpleasant odour. A combination of pain, reduced mobility, odour and wound exudate can lead to patients becoming socially isolated.
