Long-term disease leads to serious complications, causes unpleasant ailments and symptoms for the patient, to a large degree impairs the quality of life, reduces its comfort, and it often limits physical or social activity of the patient. Patients with venous ulcers are often forced to give up their professional and social activity, and to use disability benefits. The paper presents reports of three cases of relatively young patients with venous ulcers (from 50 to 52 years). As a result of the disease, patients were forced to resign from professional activity and start using disability benefits. In all presented cases, action related to the causal treatment has been taken and compression therapy has been used, as well as spot proceedings consistent with the strategy TIME.
