Abstract

Aims and objectives
To analyse current evidence on the efficacy of bandage systems containing both elastic and inelastic components (mixed-component systems).

Background
International consensus on the efficacy of types of compression systems is difficult to achieve; however, mixed-component systems are being promoted as combining the best properties of both elastic and inelastic bandage systems and increasingly being used to treat venous leg ulcers in practice.
