Objectives: to determine the effectiveness of hyper-oxygenated fatty acids in the prevention of vascular ulcers. Determine the level of existing evidence the use of hyper-oxygenated fatty acids in the prevention of vascular ulcers. Material and Method: we performed a literature search of Cochrane Library, The Joanna Briggs Institute, PubMed, Medline and CUIDEN. For the evaluation, have followed the recommendations of the GRADE system for assessing evidence and strength of recommendations. Results: The Cochrane Library and The Joanna Briggs Institute does not see any document referring to AGHO. In all other databases are observational studies that relate to vascular ulcers and AGHO. Conclusions: although not having clinical trials demonstrating their use, in recent years, have been used successfully in skin care for people with lower limb vascular disorders. According to the classification GRADE, all studies show a low-quality evidence, which we consider necessary for the implementation of most scientific research.
