La prescription de kinésithérapie dans le cadre d’ulcères de jambe, chez des patients vasculaires chroniques, est-elle en accord avec les recommandations en vigueur ?

Abstract : With ageing of population and increase of chronic vascular conditions, more patients have poor healing capacities. Leg ulcers cause pain, functional impairment and even amputation. Physiotherapists can manage ulcers, as stated in HAS recommendations, and thereby improve healing and reduce ulcer consequences. Is the prescription of physiotherapy for ulcers, in chronic vascular diseases, in line with current recommendations ? Methods : an online questionnaire on LimeSurvey was send on October 15th and closed on January 15th. French doctors managing ulcers (mainly general practitioners, phlebologists, vascular surgeons, dermatologists and geriatricians) were asked about their practices and their prescriptions of physiotherapy (frequency, content, reasons, motivation, restraints, knowledge). Results : among 282 participants, only 53.9% prescribed physiotherapy to cure ulcers, among which 13.8% prescribed it rarely. The mean evaluation of interest to physiotherapy care is 6/10. 45.7% haven’t received any information during studies about physiotherapist’s role, with an average of 2.8/10 on a scale of 1 to 10. Discussion : doctors are interested in this practice, asking for information and more scientific validation and would like more physiotherapists availability. It would be interesting to ask also physiotherapists about their ability to manage leg ulcers.
