Abstract [en]

Background: Leg ulcers are a clear problem in Primary Care and causes suffering for patients and cost society large sums every year. Part of our role as district nurses is to prevent ulcers and in the treatment do so that the wounds do not become chronic, and reduce costs for Primary Care.

Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe factors affecting healing in leg ulcers based on data from the National Registry.

Method: A quantitative retrospective registry study of 1142 patients with leg ulcer during the period 1 may 2009 until 1 december 2014 in Sweden.

Results: There was a difference in healing time between groups based on BMI and gender. The study also shows that there were different causes that affect wound healing time, such as smoking and exercise, and that men generally have a longer wound healing time than women that are statistically significant.
