Brief Summary:
The purpose of this pilot study is to compare the incidence and rate of wound healing in subjects with venous ulcers treated with an extracellular matrix composed of hyaluronic acid plus compression therapy as compared to standard care. The study also intends to follow the subjects for a 16-week period in order to evaluate ulcer recurrence within treatment groups.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Hyaluronic Acid ECM (Hyalomatrix)
Hyalomatrix ECM will be applied to the target ulcer once weekly
Device: Hyalomatrix extra-cellular matrix
An exta-cellular matrix made from hyaluronic acid

Active Comparator: Non-Adherent wound dressing (Mepilex)
Mepilex wound dressing will be applied to the target ulcer once weekly
Device: Mepilex wound dressing
A siliconized non-adhesive foam wound dressing
Other Name: non-adhesive foam wound dressing

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Effect of Hyalomatrix® plus standard care on the incidence of wound healing [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of wound healing by decrease in ulcer surface area Incidence of 50% wound healing by 4 weeks Reduced VLU recurrence after healing [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
