Abstract: The incidence of ulceration is more in ageing population and increased risk factor for atherosclerotic occlusion such as smoking, obesity and Diabetics. The problems of chronic ulcers represent a wide spectrum of etiology, pathology, severity and morbidity. Multiple factors have been identified as contributors to impaired wound healing, such as, ischemia, infection, advanced age, malnutrition, diabetes, venous insufficiency and renal disease. Other conditions, such as cardiac and lung disease, decreased cognitive function, endocrine disease, GI disease, hematologic disorders, vasculitis, musculoskeletal problems, neurological disease, alcohol/drug abuse, immunosuppressives, chemotherapy, steroids, smoking, as well as inadequate wound care have been implicated. Clinical study of a total of 50 patients from May 2017 to November 2019 will be included in the study who have non healing lower limb ulcer with taking consideration of all inclusion and exclusion criteria. Study will be done with use of different dressing materials, solutions and antibiotics in different etiologies of non healing ulcers.
