Apply current treatment recommendations for Martorell HYTILU to patient case scenarios. ABSTRACT: Martorell hypertensive ischemic leg ulcer represents rapidly progressive and extremely painful ulcers that are frequently underdiagnosed. These occur most commonly on the lateral-dorsal calf and are associated with hypertension and diabetes.
