Venous disorders of the leg, either in the chronic or acute forms, may frequently affect elderly people. In this kind of population, the complications, such as chronic ulcers, may be more severe and often may impair quality of life also. All treatments (medical, surgical, and compressive) are possible in elderly age, but every choice must be properly tailored around the specific hemodynamic profile as well as the patient’s global health.
