This evaluation examined the effectiveness of the K-Four (Parema) high compression bandage system on 50 patients with recalcitrant ‘hard-to-heal’ venous leg ulcers and relates the outcome to an earlier randomised study which compared three other fourlayer bandage systems.
Twelve-week healing rates were 53.2% in the current series, which included patients with poor mobility, large ulcers and long pretreatment ulcer duration, rising to 69.5% at 20 weeks.
