WOUND VS ULCER

I code a lot of duplex scans that come over in the admission clinical data stating wound left leg but under indications it states left chronic ulcer. The patient isn't a diabetic so do I code this open wound of left lower extremity S81.80_ or left lower extremity ulcer L97.909???

Thanks,
