Core Outcome sets for Reporting of clinical trials for the treatment of Venous leg ulceration (COREVEN)

Three systematic reviews have identified the diversity of outcomes in RCTs of VLU. Lack of agreed definitions and outcomes limits meta-analysis of trials and interpretation of findings to guide therapeutic decision making.
This project aims to gain through consensus a list of minimum outcomes to be reported in RCTs for the treatment of venous leg ulcers.
