Treatment of trophic leg ulcers with application of variable magnetic fields


magnetostimulation, magnetotherapy, trophic leg ulcers, wound treatment


The effect of treatment with extremely low frequency magnetic field (magnetotherapy) and weak microTesla variable magnetic field (magnetostimulation) in patients suffering from chronic, non-healing trophic leg ulcers is presented. The results of long-term exposure to magnetic field in form of subsidence of pain, purification of ulceration and stimulation of healing process indicate that both methods could be useful assisting methods of treatment of chronic leg ulcers, due to high therapeutic efficacy, lack of side effects, possibility of application together with routine pharmacotherapy and occlusive dressing, also in out-patient conditions, as well as facility of attendance of the devices.
