For patients with venous leg ulcers, the best prescription is good quality nursing care – and the occasional belly laugh!According to a five-year study, led from the University of Leeds, ultrasound therapy does nothing to speed up the healing process of leg ulceration – contrary to what had been expected.Traditional methods of nursing care, which are cheaper and easier to deliver, work just as well, the authors conclude."The ``healing energy`` of low-dose ultrasound can make a difference to some medical conditions but with venous leg ulcers, this is simply not the case," said Professor Andrea Nelson from the University of Leeds`` School of Healthcare, who led the study.
Full details of the findings are published online today in advance of publication in the British Medical Journal and Health Technology Assessment .ANI
