Objectives. To study possibilities of the direct oximetry application to estimate viability of the intestinal wall at acute ileus.
Methods. The research is based on the result analysis of the direct oximetry of the small intestine afferent loop in 18 guinea pigs with the experimental ileus.
Results. Correlation between the oxygen content in the small intestine wall and distance up to the level of obstruction in case of an acute ileus was revealed. Sufficient oxygen supply with its disturbed utilization was noted on the intestine sections in the direct proximity from the mechanical obstruction during the first day of ileus development. Though, if the obstruction for the intestinal content passage remains, the given parameter quickly returns to its usual values and continues to decrease progressively, testifying to the development of rough ischemic damage of the intestinal wall. The stationary level of the partial oxygen pressure remains practically unchanged during the first two days of the disease on more distant sections from the level of obstruction; though further development of the intestinal wall ischemia occurs as the result of overdistention and exhaustion of compensatory mechanisms. On the sufficiently distant sections of the intestine stationary oxygen level didn’t change remarkably during three days from the moment of the disease development; this fact once again proves a clear correlation of changes in the intestinal wall and distance to the obstruction level and time passed from the pathological process onset.
Conclusions. Direct oximetry is an objective, non-invasive method letting estimate tissue respiration in the organs and tissues which suffer from microcirculation disturbance and hypoxia on the distance from the main pathological focus. It can be used during operations to determine the level of the intestine resection and place of anastomosis application.

Objectives. To study NF (neurofilament) expression in the pancreas tissue at chronic pancreatitis as well as the correlation of its expression degree and fibrous changes expression.
Methods. Using morphological, immunohistochemical, morphometric and statistical methods we investigated pancreas of 43 patients with chronic pancreatitis in whom duodenum-saving resection of its head had been done.
Results. Morphometric assessment revealed fibrous changes variation from 10 to 98% in pancreas at chronic pancreatitis. Degree of NF expression varied from 0 to 251 points and didn’t depend on the fibrous changes expression (p>0,05). Percentage of positive expressed nerve elements varied from 0 to 100, signing the decrease of mature and viable elements in pancreas specimens with more severe fibrous changes.
Conclusions. It was found out that in the pancreas at chronic pancreatitis marked fibrous changes were developing together with the diffused degenerative changes of parenchyma and the nervous tissue was involved with it total area increase. The area of mature and viable nerve tissue was decreased

Objectives. To estimate the possibilities of minimally invasive technologies in treatment of patients with subtotal-total forms of pancreatonecrosis (PN) in early stages of the disease.
Methods. The analysis of 668 patients’ case histories with acute pancreatonecrosis was carried out; the group including 112 (16,7%) patients with subtotal-total forms of pancreatonecrosis was established; the results of their treatment were analyzed. The patients were divided into 3 groups” the 1st group – 39 (34,8%) patients in whom only intensive conservative therapy was applied; the 2nd group – 31 (27,7%) patients in whom minimally invasive technologies (open and half-open methods of treatment) were additionally used during the process of treatment; the 3rd group – 42 (37,5%) patients who were treated using various operative surgical techniques (open method). Severity of patients’ state as well as the course prognosis was evaluated using scales of polyorgan insufficiency MODS, APACHE III before and after used methods of treatment.
Results. In early terms in all patients severe systemic disturbances were noticed together with extensive lesions of the pancreas. The estimation system of severity and prognosis APACHE III permitted to reveal the relation between the degree of polyorgan insufficiency and the degree of expressiveness of the accompanying pathology.
Application of multicomponent intensive conservative therapy and minimally invasive operative interventions allowed getting a favorable result in 67 (95,7%) patients, in all three groups – in 95 (84,8%) patients. The general lethality at subtotal-total pancreatonecrosis in early terms of the disease correlates with the type and volume of treatment; in the group of patients with conservative treatment it made up 5,1%; with application of minimally invasive technologies – 3,2%; with the application of laparotomy – 33,3% correspondently.
Conclusions. Subtotal-total forms of pancreatonecrosis occur in 16,7% patients with the verified acute pancreatitis. APACHE III scale at subtotal-total pancreatonecrosis permits to evaluate the state severity degree and to predict the efficacy of the applied complex therapy. Application of minimally invasive technologies allows decreasing lethality rate at pancreatonecrosis at early terms of the disease.

Objectives. To improve the treatment results of patients with acute calculous cholecystitis.
Methods. 125 patients with acute calculous cholecystitis (ACC) were examined. The first group included the patients in whom traditional conservative treatment was performed (49 patients). The second group was made up of the patients in whom pre-surgical etiotropic preventive antibiotics and rational post-surgical preventive antibiotics were used (76 people). In both groups bacteriologic examination of cystic bile, biopsy material of the gall bladder wall and biliary calculus was carried out. In the second group PCR method was applied – the identification of anaerobic microflora in the blood, cystic bile and biopsy material of the gall bladder wall.
Results. High percentage of positive results of inoculation was received at phlegmonous calculous cholecystitis – 85,7% and at gangrenous calculous cholecystitis – 84,2%. In the investigated samples the representatives of family Enterobacteriaceae prevailed. E. faecium hold the second place among all isolated cultivations. Gram-positive cocci were also represented by S. epidermidis and anaerobic cocci P. constellatus. Moraxella spp. and Pseudomonas spp. were also marked.
The highest percentage of the identified monocultures of anaerobic organisms was received during the examination of cystic bile (86,2%) and biopsy material of the gall bladder wall (92,1%) at the deconstructive forms of calculous cholecystitis.
Etiological role of anaerobic microorganisms in the progression of complicated forms of cholelithiasis was determined by PCR method in 65,5% cases.
Resistance to amikacin, gentamicin, sparfloxacine and ciprofloxacin was determined in E.coli. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is resistant to cefoperazone. Strains of P. constellatus are resistant to metronidazole.
Conclusions. One of the leading etiological factors in the progression of deconstructive forms of calculous cholecystitis is anaerobic microorganisms, which can hardly be identified by bacteriological method. PCR method is the method of choice in diagnostics of anaerobes.
Most allocated strains of microorganisms are sensitive to investigated antimicrobials. Resistance of anaerobic microorganisms to metronidazole was revealed.
Prescription of antimicrobial chemical drugs on the basis of the evaluation of microorganism sensibility results authentically allows decreasing the percentage of postoperative complications that patients with ACC can have.

Objectives. To improve the treatment results of elderly and senile patients with giant ulcers of the stomach and duodenum.
Methods. Operative treatment analysis of 61 patients (22,3%) out of 274 patients with giant stomach and duodenum ulcers was performed. The patients were divided into 2 groups. The main group included 148 patients, 133 (89,9%) of them were of old age and 15 (10,1%) – of senile age correspondently. 126 patients of young and mean age were included in the comparison group. The average age in the main group made up 66,1±5,6; in the comparison group – 46,4±9,4. 75 (50,6%) patients in the main group had ulcers of the stomach; in the comparison group 62 (49,2%) patients had it. Duodenum ulcers in the main group were revealed in 73 patients (49,4%), and in the comparison group – in 64 patients (50,8%).
Results. The main indications for the operation in both groups were hemorrhage and perforation.
25 (16,9%)out of 148 patients underwent surgical treatment: 18 patients (72%) with duodenum ulcer and 7 patients (28%) with gastric ulcer. There were 7 planned operations (28%) and 18 emergent operations (72%). The choice of operation volume in elderly patients depended on condition severity grounded by the character of the accompanying pathology, the degree of poly-organ insufficiency expression and blood loss degree.
In the comparison group 36 patients (28,6%) out of 126 were operated on. 11 patients (17,7%) out of 64 with duodenum ulcers underwent surgical interventions. 25 patients (40,3%) out of 62 with gastric ulcers were operated on. The majority of patients were operated on emergently – 23 patients (63,9%) and urgently – 7 patients (19,4%); there were 6 (16,7%) planned operations.
Postoperative lethality in the main group made up 16%, 4 out of 25 patients died. Postoperative lethality in the comparison group made up 2,8%, 1 patient died.
Conclusions. Minimal according to their volume surgeries in elderly and senile patients with severe accompanying pathology in case of life-threatening complications are less risky and should be the method of choice in the given category of patients.

Objectives. To investigate the possibility of practical use of different physical methods of tissue dissection and coagulation in thoracoscopic surgery, to determine the indications for their application.
Methods. The efficiency of ultrasound, argon enhanced and cold plasma coagulation to achieve a safe aerohaemostasis for resection of the lung tissue was demonstrated in the series of experiments on 25 mongrel dogs. The possibility of using these physical methods of tissue dissection and coagulation in video-assisted thoracic surgery was shown in 209 patients with the non-verified disseminated processes, lymphadenopathy and mediastinum neoplasms during the clinical part of this study.
Results. Ultrasonic lung tissue dissection and coagulation permit to achieve a safe aerohaemostasis and the lung wound hermeticity. Cold plasma coagulation is the most superficial mode of electrosurgical exposure. 140 patients had diagnostic surgery and 69 operations performed with curative intent during the study. Thoracoscopic lung resection, biopsy of mediastinal lymph nodes and neoplasms were informative in all cases. Postoperative complications occurred in 15 (7%) patients. There were no lethal outcomes. The average duration of hospitalization made up 6,3±0,4 days.
Conclusions. Thoracoscopic ultrasonic atypical lung resection can be performed in patient with peripheral lung nodules and disseminated processes. Dissection of mediastinal anatomic structures and elements of the lung root should be performed with ultrasonic dissector; cold plasma coagulation for hemostasis near the large vessels of mediastinum and lung root is the most superficial and safest mode of electrosurgical exposure.

Objectives. To evaluate application efficacy of the method of the mechanical suture strengthening after atypical lung resection in patients with multiresistant forms of the lung tuberculosis.
Methods. Analysis of the designed method application in 35 patients with multiresistant forms of the lung tuberculosis after atypical resection of lung segments was carried out. The control group was composed of 31 patients with the multiresistant form of the lung tuberculosis without the given method application during the operation. The patients of the main and control groups underwent 66 operations of the resection character.
Results. Specific weight of the postoperative complications in the form of the bronchial fistula in the main group made up 8,6% cases; in the control group – 25,8%. Risk factors of postoperative complications at surgical treatment of patients with the multiresistant form of the lung tuberculosis were bacterial discharge and lung affection with tuberculosis. Application efficacy of the suggested method in the prophylaxis of the lung suture inconsistency made up 91,4% (ð<0,05); specific weight of the post-resection complications in the main group was 3 times less than in the control group.
Conclusions. The designed method of the mechanical suture strengthening after atypical lung resection in patients with the multiresistant form of the lung tuberculosis permitted to increase surgical treatment efficacy in 3 times.

Objectives. To study the the influence of the plasma enriched with platelets and of the drug "Myelopid" on the course of acute and chronic ischemia of the lower limbs.
Methods. The experimental research has been performed on 120 rats-males of the “Vistar” line as well as the results of investigation and treatment of 30 patients with chronic ischemia of the lower limbs caused by the obliterating atherosclerosis were analyzed.
Experimental animals have been divided into four groups: control and three experimental. The back limb ischemia was modelled by excision of the main vessel, including femoral, popliteal and initial parts of the arteries of the shin. Treatment wasn’t carried out in the control group of animals after ischemia modeling. The plasma enriched with platelets was injected into the muscles of the hip and the shin in the first experimental group of rats; the second experimental group got the drug "Myelopid"; the third experimental group was injected wich the plasma enriched with platelets as well as "Myelopid".
500 ml of control blood analysis was taken from the patients and the plasma enriched with platelets was prepared. 100 ml of autoplasma was injected under ultrasound control into more ischemic limb along the deep artery of the thigh and popliteal artery.
Results. Intramuscular introduction of the plasma enriched with platelets, and "Myelopid" in the ischemic limbs of animals authentically has increased the level of microcirculation and reduced the area of necrosis of the muscles. In case of their combined introduction negative results have been received. The volume blood flow in the investigated limb has 1,4 times increased in patients after treatment; the main blood flow and microcirculation level has 1,2 times increased.
Conclusions. Applications of autoplasma enriched with platelets and the preparation "Myelopid" has been pathogenetically proved for use in treatment of the patients with chronic ischemia of the lower limbs.

Objectives. To shorten the treatment terms of patients with extensive purulent wounds of soft tissues by expanding indications for the dosed hardware apparatus dermotension.
Methods. Influence of the dosed dermotension on the morphological characteristics of the structural wound components was studied in experiment on the model of the infected wound in rats. Changes occurring distantly from the area of tension were studied, directly in the area of the primary wound defect. Hypothesis was that tension of the paravulvar area tissues resulted in the production of inflammation mediators, cytokines and this in its turn led to the reparative process stimulation in the wound area. Criterion letting estimate the correctness of the hypothesis was the speed of wound healing and terms of epithelialization. Dosed hardware apparatus dermotension was applied in the clinic in 12 patients at the first stage of wound process; in 18 patients a traditional method of purulent wounds treatment “under dressing” was applied. Objective control of soft tissues state while applying hardware apparatus dermotension was carried out using the laser Doppler flowmetry method.
Results. Investigations which were done on the model of the infected wound in rats show that dosed dermotension of the paravulvar tissue influences positively the tissue qualitative composition which is formed at infected wound healing; it is proved by the ratio of granulated tissue and fibroblasts, acceleration of the wound cleaning processes and scar forming. In the clinic, using the dosed hardware apparatus dermotension, purulent wounds from 7 up to 16 cm in width were closed and after suturing wound healing according to the type of primary tension was achieved in 11 out of 12 patients.
Conclusions. Use of the dosed hardware apparatus dermotension to close extensive purulent wounds at the first stage of the wound process expands indications for application of active surgical tactics and it reduces terms of treatment of this category of patients.

Objectives. To study possibilities of the modern combined cryosurgical technique of the ingrown nail treatment in conditions of the surgical room of a polyclinic.
Methods. Cryotherapy technique was used in 17 patients with complicated forms of the ingrown nail (main group). 10 of them had acute inflammation in the form of paronychia; 7 patients had inflammatory hypergranulations. A traditional method of surgical treatment was applied in the comparison group in 17 patients with the same complications. All patients of the main and comparison groups were examined 3 and 12 months afterwards.
Results. A good clinical effect and complete recovery without recurrences were achieved in all patients of the main group as well as shortening of the average terms of work disability with the given pathology up to 10,1±1,03 days (using traditional methods – 12,5±1,28 days).
Conclusions. The method of the ingrown nail treatment using cryosurgical technique is less traumatic and it contributes to quick restoring of work ability and accelerated rehabilitation; it also provides good cosmetic effect and isn’t accompanied by recurrences.

Objectives. To design the method of early diagnostics of the knee joint posttraumatic osteoarthritis based on radiothermometry application.
Methods. Knee joint radiothermometry was applied in 34 patients in the postoperative period at the fractures of the tibia condyles. The research was conducted starting with the 8th week after the operative treatment and every 4 weeks in terms up to 6 months. Control temperature measuring was carried out 1 year afterwards. Control group included 36 healthy volunteers in whom there were no injures, diseases and operations in the knee joint regions in the anamnesis.
Results. While studying temperature readings in dynamics, one revealed statistically significant differences in the temperature reaction of the tissues in patients with a normal course of processes of the bone tissue consolidation and pathological reactions linked with the posttraumatic osteoarthritis development. Tendency to the gradual temperature reduction on the side of the injury in all sections is observed in case of a normal course. In case of the posttraumatic osteoarthritis development the temperature in all sections of the injured joint tends to reduce only in the early period of observation. Temperature increase is further observed which remains up to the end of the period of observation, despite the temperature of the uninjured joint increases in comparison with the control group. One year after the operative intervention the development of the postoperative osteoarthritis was observed in 5 patients making up 14,7%. On studying temperature reaction of the tissues, thermoasymmetry was registered in them due to high temperature readings on the side of the injury in all sections of the knee joint including the projection points of the joint split. Several variants of relationship of the tissue temperature reactions in dynamics characterizing the postoperative osteoarthritis development were revealed.
Conclusions. The suggested method provides an additional diagnostic criterion which permits to assume the development of the postoperative osteoarthritis at the before X-ray stage of the disease.

Objectives. To investigate the effect of oxygen various concentrations applied at multicomponent endotracheal anesthesia on the basis of sevoflurane on the parameters of venous blood gas composition and the acid-basic state.
Methods. 67 persons (12 men and 55 women) at the age from 18 till 80 years who were being operated routinely were included in a prospective, randomized controlled trial. Patients were divided into two groups depending on the applied intraoperative concentration of oxygen in the inhaled mixture with FiO2 50%and 35%. The acid-basic state and venous blood gas composition at three stages (prior to the beginning of operation, during it and after anesthesia) were investigated.
Results. Application of high oxygen concentration during anesthesia results in substantial growth of oxygen pressure and an oxygen saturation in the venous blood. At using during anesthesia of FiO2=35%, oxygen pressure was 78,6±27,1mmHg, and the saturation was 92,8±7,9%. It testifies to the fact that at multicomponent balanced anesthesia with sevoflurane, patients without lung diseases have raised oxygen content in the venous blood. Reduction of the previously increased lactate level in the venous blood (1,3±0,3 mmol/l in comparison with 2,9±0,9mmol/l at 1 stage (ð <0,001)) during anesthesia also testifies to the sufficient body oxygenation.
Conclusions. Application in patients during endotracheal anesthesia of the oxygen concentration which when inhaled is equal to 35% results in oxygen pressure increase in the venous blood as well as in lactate level decrease testifying to the adequate oxygen supply to the organism tissues.

Objectives. To improve the restapedoplasty efficiency in patients with otosclerosis.
Methods. During the period of 2008-2011 the analysis of the intraoperative findings in 24 patients who had undergone stapedoplasty because of otosclerosis recently but with unsatisfactory functional outcome was carried out. Before the operation all patients underwent complete complex of clinical-audiological investigation.
Results. The causes of unsatisfactory results of stapedoplasty according to intraoperative findings data are the cicatricial changes in the posterior and superior sections of the tympanic cavity, in the region of the remote bone overhang of the back of the external auditory canal, tympanic membrane retraction and its fusion with the long leg of the incus in 12 patients (50%) patients. Dislocation of prosthesis, short prosthesis, not tight fixation of the prosthesis ring on a long stalk anvil, anvil dislocation occurred in 8 (33,4%) patients. Reossification foci in the oval window are detected in 4 (16,6%) patients.
Excellent and good functional results were achieved in 22 (91,6%) patients. In 2 (8,4%) operated patients hearing has not changed. After reoperation the closure of air-bone interval (ABI) was noted in all patients.
Conclusions. At reoperations because of poor functional results of stapedoplasty besides removing the leading pathogenetic factors responsible for the immobilization of the auditory ossicles, it is necessary to apply individual variants of surgical correction. They include the excision of the scar with the secondary partial reconstruction of the posterior wall of external auditory canal, malleostapedoplasty, reprostheses of the vestibular window, ossiculoplasty with autotissues or the implant.

The indications for performing the kidney resection at various pathologies have recently been expanding. The key point of the operation is assurance of reliable final bleeding stoppage from the dissected organ parenchyma. There are many methods of hemostasis. The general advantages and disadvantages of each group are viewed in the article. It has been concluded that it is necessary to apply ligature methods of hemostasis at the middle kidney segment resection as well as at all operations with opening of the cavitary kidney system.

Objectives. To improve the results of surgical treatment of patients with anatomo-functional insufficiency of anterior abdominal wall.
Methods. 21 patients at the age from 33 till 52 with the presence of belly ptosis and hernial defect of the anterior abdominal wall of various localizations were operated on. In all cases a classical abdominoplasty was performed. The choice of the technique and direction of displacement of a flap were defined according to the expressiveness of skin and fat «apron». In 75% cases abdominoplasty was supplemented with liposuction of lateral departments of the anterior abdominal wall. Tension-free hernioplasty was carried out on «inlay» method with the application of partially resolving facilitated multifilament grids VYPRO (Johnson & Johnson, Ethicon).
Results. Classical abdominoplasty is evident to patients with the expressed changes of the anterior abdominal wall. Additional performance of liposuction allows generating a natural contour of the waist, and also gets rid of necessity of wide lateral separation of skin and fat flap, thus saving vessels feeding it. At allocation of skin and fat flap for the purpose of preventive maintenance of lymphorrhea preservation out of a seams zone of a fatty cellulose lower than Thompson’s fascia is necessary.
The analysis of the postoperative course has shown that serious complications from respiratory organs and cardiovascular system weren’t observed. As a result of liposuction and removal of skin and the «apron» the weight of a body of patients decreased on 9,54±2,82 kg.
Conclusions. Thus, abdominoplasty permits to obtain technically convenient access at tension-free hernioplasty of the anterior abdominal wall of any localization. Combined performance of abdominoplasty and tension-free hernioplasty of the anterior abdominal wall allows achieving simultaneously good esthetic and functional result. Abdominoplasty combined with liposuction of the lateral sections of the anterior abdominal wall permits to achieve more natural and esthetically attractive contour of a belly.

The questions concerning the application of the compressive therapy at the lower limbs chronic venous insufficiency are comprehensively viewed in the article. Its role in complex treatment of patients with the given pathology is demonstrated. The mechanism of the compressive therapy action is described in details. The characteristics of the present facilities is also given that can be used for a permanent compressive therapy as well as concrete recommendations are formulated dealing with their application in various clinical cases. The application technique of elastic compressive dressings, special compressive bondages, compressive knitwear is described. The questions of application of a variable (intermittent) compression are also studied. Indications and contraindications for its application are formulated; the recommendations on the application regimens of pneumocompression in different clinical classes are given.
The compressive therapy is shown to be an effective, scientifically grounded and promissory method of chronic venous insufficiency treatment. A properly performed compressive therapy results in venous outflow improvement, regress of signs of the disease as well as in improvement of subjective sensations of patients. At present it is an integral part of chronic venous insufficiency complex therapy.
