Brief description Chronic venous leg ulcers (VLU) are a common and costly problem. People with chronic wounds found on the ankles and legs can be spontaneous or occur after minor trauma, they are often painful and ooze fluid. The burden is expected to rise with an ageing population and growing epidemic of diabetes and obesity which will increase challenges for clinicians. We will perform a clinical trial to see if aspirin plus 3 layer compression in people with venous leg ulcers heal more quickly.
