Title [The experience of ozone therapy in a complex treatment of surgical infections of soft tissues]
Author Zasorin, A A
Abstract The purpose of the study was to improve the results of treatment of patients with surgical infection of soft tissues (SIST) by using ozone therapy (OT) in the set of curative measures. The study was based on data of testing 310 male patients aged 19.6±1.7 with SIST treated in the surgical infection unit of FSE 354 District Military Clinical Hospital of the RF MD. The efficiency of the OT usage in the combination SIST therapy was studied based on the study of clinical and laboratory data of system inflammatory response (SIR), microcirculation, wound change dynamics. In local OT the ozone-oxygen mixture was fed to a chamber by the flow-through method continually within 20 minutes at the rate of 1 l per minute with concentration of 5 mg/l. The system OT included the infusion of 200 ml of ozonated saline solution with the ozone concentration 0.7±0.063 mg/l. A course consisted of 4 infusions once a day. It was established that the use of OT in the set of curative measures in case of SIST interrupts the progression of system inflammatory response. Key words: surgical infection of soft tissues, system and local ozone therapy.

Title The clinical efficacy of the local, deep insufflation of an oxygen-ozone mixture in the prevention and treatment of infections in the locomotor system

Abstract Background. Ozone therapy - i.e. the treatment of patients by a mixture of oxygen and ozone - has been used for many years as a method ancillary to basic treatment, especially in those cases in which traditional treatment methods do not give satisfactory results, e.g. skin loss in non-healing wounds, ulcers, pressure sores, fistulae, etc.<br /> Material and methods. In the Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Department of the Medical Faculty No. 2 and the Department of the Orthopedics and Traumatology of the Locomotor System at the Medical Academy of Warsaw in the period from January 2000 until November 2001, 49 patients with extensive injuries to the locomotor system and septic complications after surgical procedures were treated with ozone. The ozone therapy was administered using an authorial technique of deep ozone application. Two groups of patients were treated: posttraumatic patients at risk for primary deep infections (e.g. open fractures without skin losses) and patients with declared postoperative infections in the locomotor system. The first group involved 31 patients; the second group, 18.<br /> Results. In the first group, three patients had septic complications despite mixed treatment, including one case of osteomyelitis. In the second group, all the patients experienced much faster than normal wound healing with inhibition of septic processes. In two cases, the septic process was reactivated after 6 and 9 months respectively, and these patients are still undergoing treatment.<br /> Conclusions. Our data confirm the advantages resulting from the deep application of ozone in the prevention and combined treatment for septic complications in the locomotor system. Our technique of deep ozone application makes it possible to reduce the risk of posttraumatic infections and promotes quicker healing of post-surgical complications and chronic septic infections. This method also lowers the cost of antibiotic therapy and is sometimes the only available auxiliary technique to support surgical procedures.

Title [Surgical treatment of the perforating ulcer of the foot]

Abstract Plantar ulceras in diabetic or arteriophatic patients are commonly difficult to treat due to several factors. Particularly the metatarsal trophic ulcerations, can be a very complex problem. This condition is basically produced by an eccessive pressure of the bone, consequently to an equine metatarsal head drop, upon a bad vascularized tissue or when a diabetic disorder can slaken or prevent the healing. Since 1993 we surgically treated 28 patients with perforating ulcer of the foot with no previous good results after different long term therapeutic protocols, including ozone and hyperbaric treatments. The surgical technique performed was a metatarsal osteotomy to revise the equine deformity in order to reduce the biomechanic overload as ulceration trigger. The trophic wound closure, after cauterization of the borders, was obtained with an ''S'' skin incision and a cutaneous suture with a 60° degrees' rotation of the skin flaps. After the suture removal (average time two weeks) full weight-bearing was allowed with a plantar orthesis. After a mean follow-up of one year, the overall functional rating was good and no recidivation observed.
