Flavonoids are the most abundant bioactive compounds all around the world and are emerging as an important source of new wound healing therapies. Most wound healing medicinal plants possess multiple flavonoids that act synergistically or collectively. Flavonoids also have venotonic and lymphotonic properties and act on leukocytes and endothelium, resulting in decreased inflammation and permeability. This session will examine and evaluate published data related to the role of micronized purified flavonoid fractions (MPFF/diosmin/ hesperidin) as part of standard of care for management of venous leg ulcers.
