For analyzes of associations of qualitative variables, the Chi-square and Fisher’s exact tests were applied, and for quantitative variables, Spearman’s correlation coefficient. The Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing instrument was used to assess the wound and the Freiburg Life Quality Assessment Wound-wk for quality of life analysis. The study included 103 subjects with a wound time of more than six weeks, of venous etiology. <strong>Results:</strong> there was a correlation between the clinical characteristics of the venous ulcer and symptoms associated with quality of life. In the physical symptoms dimensions, people with venous ulcers had a worse score in relation to the pain symptom (p &lt;0.0001). Associated with this, clinical characteristics such as the appearance (p &lt;0.0001) and the area (p = 0.0037) of the wound also showed a correlation. Regarding the wound assessment scale (area, tissue in the wound and exudate), the worst score interfered with physical symptoms. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> the pain, size of the wound and its aspect negatively influences the quality of life of people with venous ulcers.</p> Uiara Aline de Oliveira Kaizer, Elaine Aparecida Rocha Domingues, Ana Beatriz de Toledo Saib Paganelli Copyright (c) 2021 Uiara Aline de Oliveira Kaizer, Elaine Aparecida Rocha Domingues, Ana Beatriz de Toledo Saib Paganelli https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/968 Tue, 19 Jan 2021 00:00:00 -0300 PROFILE OF WOMEN WITH LEG ULCERS DUE TO SICKLE CELL DISEASE https://www.revistaestima.com.br/estima/article/view/993 <p class="p1"><strong>Objective:</strong> to characterize the profile of women with leg ulcers resulting from sickle cell disease treated at a public health institution in Brazil. <strong>Method:</strong> historical cohort study conducted in the outpatient sector with a sample of women with sickle cell disease and leg ulcer, followed from 1998 to 2014.
