It is estimated that chronic, non-healing wounds affect over 6 million people in the United States. Heart and vascular disease often lead to poor circulation that can increase the likelihood of developing these non-healing wounds. If these wounds are left untreated, they may lead to a reduced quality of life and potentially an amputation. So, it is important for patients to keep their hearts healthy through proper diet and exercise, smoking cessation and by visiting their healthcare provider on a regular basis!
