Objectives. To evaluate the effectiveness of the photodynamic therapy in the treatment of acute cholecystitis in experi-ment.
Methods. Acute phlegmonic cholecystitis was simulated in 18 laboratory animals (rabbits). Three groups were determined. In the 1st group (control one, 6 animals) an acute phlegmonic cholecystitis was modeled, treatment was not carried out. In the 2nd group (experimental one, 6 ani-mals) in two days after acute cholecystitis modeling, Ñhlorophyllipt solution was injected into the gallbladder without consequent low-intensity laser radiation. In the 3rd group (experimental one, 6 animals) in two days after acute cholecystitis modeling, Ñhlorophyllipt solution was injected into the gallbladder and in 10 minutes low-intensity laser radiation was applied. Clinical course was estimated, general and biochemical blood tests indexes as well as bacteriological, microscopic indexes of the gallbladder content were studied. Morphological analysis was carried out in case of animals’ death in the control group and in case of excluding from the experiment in the experimental groups.
Results. A severe form of acute phlegmonic cholecystitis transforming into a destructive one with a widespread diffuse peritonitis was developing in animals, which was the cause of animals’ death in the control group of animals which hadn’t been treated. In the experimental groups a positive dynamics was registered, which was most pronounced in the rabbits treated with photodynamic therapy (PDT): acute process was stopped faster in the gallbladder wall, there was no tendency of a chronic form development with sclerotic changes; in the laboratory data general and biochemical blood tests stabilization and decrease of bacterial and leukocytes contamination of the bile was faster than in the group without PDT.
Conclusions. Application of local intravesical photodynamic therapy of acute phlegmonic cholecystitis results in the marked relief of the inflammatory process in the gallbladder of rabbits and prevents its transition into destructive and chronic forms.

Objectives. To estimate immediate results of the proposed strategy of the full minimally invasive myocardium revascularization (MIMR) at the multiple lesions of the coronary arteries.
Methods. From 2011 up to 2012 at the cardiac surgery department of ME “Vi-tebsk regional clinical hospital” 71 patients with the ischemic heart disease underwent full MIMR at the multiple lesions of coronary arteries. The proposed strategy of the MIMR was directed to avoid artificial cardiopulmonary bypass and manipulations on the ascending aorta, usage of the left minithoracotomy access and tendency to perform functionally adequate arterial revascularization of the left ventricle. Revascularization index composed 2,5. 68 patients underwent composite-sequential grafting without involving aorta; 3 patients – coronary artery bypass grafting. Full arterial revascularization was performed in 49 (69,0%) cases, in 7 (9,9%) cases – hybrid MIMR with a complete arterial revascularization of the left ventricle. In 2 (2,8%) patients the pump-assisted beating heart approach was employed during the part of the main operation stage.
Results. There were no lethal outcomes in the researched group of patients. Immediate results of the MIMR showed a low rate of the perioperative complications (bleeding, arrhythmia and infection) and they are associated with short period of ICU – stay and reduced hospital length of stay.
The development of complications during the early postoperative period hasn’t been established to depend reliably on the patient’s age, number of the affected and grafted coronary arteries, the ejection fraction of the left ventricle, the presence of the affection of the left coronary artery trunk, multifocal atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, heart failure and arrhythmia.
Conclusions. The worked out method of the MIMR allows achieving complete myocardial revascularization, improving early postoperative period; it is associated with a small number of complications and is effective and safe in high-risk patients.

Objectives. To study sensitivity, accuracy and specificity of pre- and intraoperative cytological examination of the nodular goiter, and also the reasons of false positive and false negative results of the cytological examination.
Methods. The results analysis of surgical treatment of 933 patients with different forms of nodular goiter for a 3-year period (2007-2009) was carried out. Data of the fine needle aspiration biopsies and intraoperative cytological examination were compared with the results of histological examination of the operative mate-rial.
Results. Preoperative cytological examination appeared to be informative in 915 cases out of 933 or in 98,1%. The application of the preoperative complex as well as intraoperative cytological examination permitted to determine correctly the character of the thyroid gland lesion, its morphological form and on the basis of these data to choose an adequate volume of the operation in 94,6% of observations. False positive results of the cytological conclusions on the thyroid gland cancer were in 22 patients (2,3%), false negative results were in 29 patients (3,1%).Intraoperative cytologi-cal examination of the touch smears permitted to improve diagnostics results and to verify the malignant tumor in 16 more patients with the thyroid gland cancer. Coincidence of the data of pre- and intraoperative diagnostics with postoperative planned histological examination composed 91,1% at the thyroid gland cancer, 86,8% – at the nodular colloid goiter, 54,2% – at autoimmune thyroiditis.
Conclusions. The performed research certified that up to present one has faced difficulties in the preoperative verification of the nodular growths of the thyroid gland. There are no special techniques permitting to exclude the malignant nodular tumor growth before the operation absolutely certainly.
Complex application of the preoperative fine needle aspiration biopsy with the consequent obligatory intraoperative cytological examination contributed to the improvement of diagnostics quality of the nodular goiter and permitted to choose an optimal type and volume of the operation.

Objectives. To improve the treatment results of patients with ventral hernias by individualization of treatment tactics on the basis of ultrasonic investigation of the structure and blood supply specialties of the anterior abdominal wall.
Methods. The research included 107 subjects, who have been operated on (planned hernioplasty with polypropylene mesh). The operated were divided into two groups. The main group enumerated 50 patients, the control one – 57. Treatment tactics of the control group patients was conventional. Ultrasonic tomography of the abdominal wall was carried out additionally in the main group of patients in the preoperative period; its results were used to individualize the operative intervention choice. In the postoperative period ultrasonic monitoring of the postoperative wound was used. The results of surgical treatment in the main and control groups were assessed at the early postoperative period; the character of postoperative course was analyzed as well as the number of complications.
Results. Postoperative complications in the main group developed in 5 (10%) subjects: seroma formation – in 3 (6%) cases, postoperative wound infiltration – in 2 (4%) cases. Postoperative complications in the control group were revealed in 8 (14,04%) subjects. Postoperative wound infection was revealed in 1 (1,75%) case, fistula formation – 1 (1,75%) case, seroma formation – 5 (8,8%) subjects, postoperative wound infiltration – in 3 (5,3%) cases.
In 8 (16%) observations in the main group according to ultrasound investigation we managed to reveal timely the pathological changes in the transplant zone; it permitted to foresee possibility of development of local complications and to perform effective conservative procedures.
Conclusions. The research has proved the efficacy of usage of ultrasonography in diagnostic and treatment of patients with ventral hernias. Ultrasonic methods permit to individualize the choice of hernioplasty method, to objectify the control of the wound process course, to foresee development of complications in the postoperative wound and to perform their timely correction.

Objectives. To analyze the early postoperative complications at the endoprosthesis of ventral hernias.
Methods. The treatment results of 245 patients with ventral hernias, who were operated on using mesh synthetic endoprostheses are presented. Endoprosthesis fixation in the position “on-lay” was performed in 220 (90%) patients, in the position “sub-lay” – in 21 (9%), in the position “in-lay” in 4 (1%). To prevent the wound complications using the “on-lay” and “in-lay” methods in the main group (n=122) aponeurosis was sewed on and fixed with the vertical P- stitches to the prosthesis and the bottom of the wound. The wound drainage was performed in 4 patients (3,3%). In the control group (n=102) we carried out drainage and wound layer-wise stitch without wide taking and fixation of subcutaneous tissue. Drainage was made in 83 patients (81,4%).
Results. The application of the postoperative wound closure technique, at which wide taking and fixation of subcutaneous tissue to the prosthesis and the bottom of the wound by means of the vertical P- stitches as well as limiting of indications to the wound drainage has decreased the incidence of complications at the early postoperative period. In the main group the formation of clinically significant fluid accumulations was observed in 9 (7,4%) patients; in the control group – in 28 (27,5%) patients. Differences are statistically significant (p<0,001).
Conclusions. The main reasons of formation of fluid accumulations in the wound at endoprosthesis are the mobilization of subcutaneous tissue with vascular trauma, formation of “dead space”, absence of fixation and snug fit of tissue to the synthetic prosthesis. Wide taking and fixation of subcutaneous tissue to prosthesis and bottom of the wound with the help of vertical P- stitches according to “on-lay” and “in-lay” methods let us reduce the incidence frequency of clinically significant fluid accumulations at the early postoperative period.

To analyze the results of two variants of duodenum-saving resection of the pancreas head with the traverse (Beger’s operation in the modification of the clinic) and without traverse (the Berne variant of Beger’s operation) of the pancreas over the portal vein in patients with chronic pancreatitis.
Methods. 82 patients are involved in the prospective research. Operative interventions were carried out in the period from 2008 up to 2011. Beger’s operation in our modification was performed in 39 (47,5%) patients, in 43 – the Berne variant of Beger’s operation. While carrying out the comparative analysis we assessed the following: duration of the operation, incidence of the postoperative com-plications, length of hospitalization, quality of patient’s life and pain syndrome severity.
Results. Comparative analysis of the operative results after Beger’s operation in the modification of the clinic and the Berne variant of Beger’s operation showed the lack of reliable differences in such parameters as duration of the operation, volume of intraoperative hemotransfusion and length of the in-patient treatment. Statistically significant improvement of the parameters of the life quality was registered after Beger’s operation in the modification of the clinic if compared with the preo-perative period in the following parameters: physical functioning, pain severity, role functioning conditioned by the physical state, life activity, general health, social functioning, psychic health and pain level value according to VAS.
Conclusions. The results of the prospective research prove that duodenum-saving resection of the pancreas head permits to achieve high professional rehabilitation in patients with chronic pancreatitis in the distant postoperative period. Duodenum-saving operations improve the quality of life in the postoperative period due to elimination of pain and obstructive complications of chronic pancreatitis and they are comparable with each other in the distant results. Beger’s operation in the modification of the clinic is more preferable in case of large size of the pancreas head and if pseudo aneurism and portal hypertension are present.

Objectives. To estimate the character of the morphological changes in the preterminal section of the great saphenous vein in different terms starting from the disease onset and in various forms of varicose veins.
Methods. Histological preparations of the removed great saphenous vein of 21 patients with the primary varicose veins of the C2-C6 (CEAP) clinical classes were studied. The examination was carried out by means of the light microscopy at magnification. The state of the venous wall and the character of the morphological changes, which were determined according to the severity of the prevailing pathological processes in the intima, media and adventitia, were estimated.
Results. Morphological structural disturbances in the preterminal section of the great saphenous vein were found out to be represented by the combination of elastolysis, atrophic and sclerotic changes, and hypertrophy involving all layers of the venous wall. On the basis of the pathological processes severity 3 nominal types of venous wall changes are singled out: with prevalence of sclerotic changes on the moderate hypertrophy background; with prevalence of atrophic changes and with marked hypertrophic changes. Severity of the connective tissue destruction, sclerotic changes and hypertrophy correlate with the main disease duration if a positive variant correlation is present in case of sclerosis-hypertrophy and a negative one in case of atrophy-sclerosis, atrophy-hypertrophy.
Conclusions. Pathological morphological changes in the preterminal section of the great saphenous vein are detected at early stages including minor forms of the disease. The most marked character of the connective tissue destruction is observed at early terms of the pathology development. While the disease is progressing, prevalence of the sclerotic changes and of hypertrophy is observed on the background of the severity reduction of the destructive processes of the connective tissue. The given changes show the systemic character of the vascular wall lesion at varicose veins and can predetermine the early character of failure development of the terminal valvular apparatus of the great saphenous vein in case of the given pathology.

Objectives. To assess the efficacy of the revascularization osteotrepanation (ROT) in the complex treatment of patients with purulent-necrotic forms of the diabetic foot syndrome (DFS).
Methods. We analyzed the treatment results of 24 patients with purulent-necrotic forms of DFS who underwent ROT according to the method of F.N.Zusmanovich (1996). The operation was carried out in case of contraindications for the method of the endovascular and direct revascularization. The critical ischemia was diagnosed according to the results of the ultrasound duplex angioscanning and angiography. To assess the impact of ROT on the lower limb blood supply the partial pressure of the oxygen and carbon dioxide was determined as well as the lactate content in the venous blood of the operated limb and the skin thermometry was also eva-luated.
Results. The ðÎ2 reading in the venous blood of the operated limb was found out to increase from 36,9 mm mercury (the interquartile mean (IQM) – 30,0-43, 0 mm mercury up to 38, 7 mm mercury (IQM – 33,0-47,3) in patients after complex treatment with ROT application. The lactate decrease was registered from 2,17 mmol/L (IQM – 2,12-2,42 mmol/L) up to 1,69 mmol/L (IQM 1,41-1,91 mmol/L). The ðÑÎ2 reading statistically reliably remained unchanged (ð=0,895). The skin temperature in the middle third of the shin of the operated limb increased from 28,13°Ñ (IQM 27,82-28,64°Ñ) up to 30,33°Ñ (IQM 29,23-31,78°Ñ). The resection operations on the foot permitting to save the sup-porting function of the limb were carried out in 81, 8% of patients in 5 months after the performed treatment.
Conclusions. Application of ROT in patients with the critical ischemia on the background of the purulent-necrotic forms of DFS leads to the blood supply improvement of the affected limb tissue as well as microcirculation enhancement and minimization of the presented metabolic disturbances; this increases the probability of the resection operations on the foot with saving the supportive function of the limb.

Objectives. To create test-systems for identification of gram-negative and non-clostridial anaerobic microorganisms and for deter-mination of their sensitivity to antibacterial preparations, to work out effective schemes of the antibacterial therapy at treatment of patients with widespread purulent peritonitis.
Methods. By means of the developed test systems investigations of peritoneal exudate of 85 patients with widespread purulent peritonitis have been carried out. The character of gram-negative aerobic and non-clostridial anaerobic microflora has been studied, its sensitivity to antibacterial preparations has been defined, and also effective schemes of rational antibacterial therapy have been sug-gested
Results. The dominating role in peritonitis development belongs to E.coli (54,9 %) and B. fragilis (63,4 %). Rational application of antimicrobial preparations in pre – and postoperative periods in many respects predetermine success of treatment of widespread purulent peritonitis. On the basis of data on the etiologic structure and sensitivity of microorganisms to antimicrobial preparations we have established the following effective schemes of rational empirical antibacterial therapy of widespread purulent peritonitis: cephalosporins of III generation + metronidazole; cephalosporins of III generation + aminoglycosides + metronidazole; cephalosporins of IV generation + metronidazole; carbapenems (imipenem, meropenem); fluoroquinolones + metronidazole.
Conclusions. «ID-ENT» and «AB-GRAM (-)» test systems have been developed for identification of gram-negative microorganisms and determination of their sensitivity to antibacterial preparations, for obligate anaerobic microorganisms – «ID-ANA» and «AB-AN», respectively. The developed test systems are characterized by a great variety of antibiotics, relative low cost, simplicity in manufacturing and use, speed of determination of sensitivity and can find a wide application for determination of sensitivity of strains of causative agents of a surgical infection in bacteriological laboratories of a various profile.

Objectives. The efficiency estimation of the ultrasound debridement method in the preparation of chronic wounds (CW) to skin grafting (SG).
Methods. 25 patients with CW of various etiology are included in the investigation. The first group was composed of patients (n=12), who were subjected to a single ultrasound debridement before SG. 2 procedures of ultrasound diagnostics were performed to the patients of the 2nd group (n=13): 3 days after hospitalization (the 1st procedure) and immediately before SG (the 2nd procedure).
Results. The using of two ultrasound debridement procedures while preparing chronic wounds to skin grafting is accompanied with shortening of graft healing time up to 9 (6; 10) days (p=0,015 in comparison with the results of the 1st group of patients – 12 (10; 15) days), skin graft outcome improving (complete graft healing was registered in 100% of the patients), decrease of positive results of bacteriological examination up to 70% (V2=4,22, ð=0,04 in comparison with the results of the 1st group of patients) and of bacterial wound contamination up to ≤103 CFU/ml (V2=10,6, ð=0,001 as opposed to the 1st group) and changing of microbial landscape – only monoculture of S.aureus, P.aeroginosa, P.mirabilis were isolated (V2=10,1, ð=0,0015 in comparison with the results of the 1st group of patients). And one ultrasound debridment procedure wasn’t accompanied with significant differences of the bacterial count and CW microbial landscape.
Conclusions. The use of double ultrasound debridement procedures (the first – during pre-operative conservative preparation, the second – before skin grafting) is more effective approach while preparing patients with CW to SG in comparison with the single ultrasound debridement procedure.

Objectives. To improve the results of complex treatment of patients with posttraumatic chondropathy of the knee joint using in-traarticular injections of platelet-enriched plasma.
Methods. Treatment results of 55 patients who had undergone different traumas of the knee joint with the arthroscopically verified diagnosis “posttraumatic chondropathy” were studied. Intraarticular injection of platelet-enriched plasma was used in the treatment of 31 patients with posttraumatic cartilage defects in the knee joint. The control group included 24 patients with posttraumatic chondropathy who were not injected platelet-enriched plasma. To evaluate treatment efficacy, besides clinical investigation methods, we used the evaluation scale of outcomes of injuries and diseases of the knee joint – KOOS 2 and 6 months after the course of treatment.
Results. The performed research has shown that 6 months after the course of the intraarticular injection of platelet-enriched plasma, the patients were characterized by reliably higher indexes of subscales “symptoms” (p<0,01), function in daily living” (p<0,01), “function in sport and recreation” (p<0,01) and “knee-related quality of life” (p<0,01) and summarized index on the KOOS scale (ð<0,01)if compared with the patients of the control group. We haven’t revealed any side-effects and complications while applying this method of treatment.
Conclusions. Using platelet-enriched plasma for intraarticular injections permits to improve significantly the indexes of the functional state of the knee joint as well as the life quality of patients with posttraumatic chondropathy. This method is up-to-date, effective and simple in use and is promissory for treatment of the given pathology.

Objectives. Preliminary analysis and development of the optimal methods for transplanting simple and compound vascularized flaps at the post-traumatic bone defects and false joints of the upper limb.
Methods. 14 free and transferred microsurgical transplants, simple and compound skin and bone grafts were done at the traumatic bone defects and false joints of the upper limb. There were 10 males and 4 females. The age of patients ranged from 11 to 37. The cause of traumatic bone defects and false joints were: gunshot wounds, (3), industrial accident injuries and falls from heights (9), electric trauma (2). Arteriography, electroneuromyography, Doppler sonography were performed in all patients as additional methods of investigation in the perioperative period.
Results. While choosing a way of treatment and studying a long-term outcome it was found out that the reconstruction results of the upper extremity defects depend on the nature of an injury, concomitant injuries of other anatomic structures and the proper selection of the graft. At the same time the benefits of vascularized combinations of tissues over traditional methods of autoplasty was proved. It was established that patients with posttraumatic defects and false joints had a simultaneous damage of the neurovascular bundles, tendons as well as the defects of covering tissues worsening the severity of the injury.
Conclusions. Absence of complications in the donor sites, an adequate recovery of limb function in relatively short time testifies to appropriateness of more widespread use of vascularized grafts in post-traumatic defects and false joints of the upper limb.

Objectives. To develop an algorithm of surgical treatment tactics of benign tumors and tumor-like processes of long bones permitting to restore the integrity of a bone and limb function.
Methods. 184 children with benign tumors and tumor-like diseases were under observation; they were subjected to different types of resection within healthy tissues. Various types of osteoplastic material in combination with fixation of the damaged segment in different ways were used. In addition, computer simulation of the axial load on the long tubular bone defects with different localization and size was carried out.
Results. The performed computer simulation shows that presence of the bone defect in its size 1/3 larger than the length of the diaphysis circle and 25% bigger than the bone length weakens the bone toughness so that at usual physiological load on a limb, a pathological break in the defect zone may occur.
On the basis of analysis results, we developed an algorithm for treatment tactics selection, taking into account the nature of the pathological process, the size and location of the resulting bone defect. It was determined that patients operated on using the developed algorithm, in spite of the greater volume of the present defect, rehabilitation period was 15-18% shorter if compared with patients in whom continuous external plaster immobilization was applied and early motor load was not realized.
Conclusions. Differential use in children with post-resection bone defects of osteoplastic materials and preventive osteosynthesis gives the most favorable clinical results with maximally early activation of patients and preservation of a usual life style of a patient during treatment.

Objectives. To assess the efficiency of combination of a local anesthetic with short time of blockade and short period of action (li-docaine) and the preparation with longer duration of anesthesia development but more continuous analgesic effect (ropivacaine) to support operation interventions on the limbs.
Methods. 54 blockades of the sciatic nerve under ultrasound control with electro stimulator of the peripheral nerves were done. The sciatic nerve blockade in the 1st group was done using 5 ml of 0,75% ropivacaine; in the 2nd group – 10 ml of 0,75% ropivacaine; in the 3rd group – by combination of local anesthetics composed of 5 ml of 0,75% naropin and 5 ml of 1% lidocaine. The primary final point was the time of a complete sensory block. Assessment of time of sensory and motor blocks development was performed from the moment when the local anesthetic was injected in the fascial cover of the sciatic nerve.
Results. Onset time of the complete motor and sensor block was shortened due to combining 1% lidocaine solution with 0,75% ropivacaine solution. Time for the complete block development in groups with using 5 and 10ml ropivacaine composed 46 (39;47) and 28 (28;30) minutes correspondently in contrast of 12(10;12) minutes when the combination of anesthetics was used (ð<0,01). There was no any difference in analgesia duration in the postoperative period between the groups (ð>0,05).
Conclusions. Combination of 5ml of 1% lidocaine with 5 ml of 0,75% ropivacaine resulted in time shortening of the sciatic nerve complete sensor and motor blocks development without reduction of the postoperative analgesia time.

Objectives. Consideration of problems of specialized medical care rendering at treatment of chronic tonsillitis in children in the subject of the Russian Federation on the example of the Kabardino-Balkarian republic (KBR).
Methods. The retrospective analysis of 2894 medical records of a municipal organization of public health care of City children’s policlinic ¹ 1 and a municipal organization of health care of City children’s polyclinic of ¹ 2 g of Nalchik from 2001 to 2010 was carried out. The analysis of incidence of children with diseases of respiratory organs was performed. The structural features of public health care of KBR and its personnel resources were analyzed.
Results. Chronic tonsillitis occurs on the average in 4,2% of the general children’s population of KBR; its share in the general structure the ENT diseases incidence makes up 49,3%. The timely treatment begun at the pre-hospital stage allows curing a patient in the out-patient conditions that should limit development of complications and, as a result, reduce the number of addressing to a hospital. At present the volume of rendered specialized medical care isn’t sufficient and incapable to satisfy fully needs of the children’s population for the treatment-and-prophylactic and medical-social help.
Conclusions. The most significant because of the social and clinical importance is tonsillar pathology. Now it is possible to say confidently that this subject fell outside the limits ENT diseases and has paramount importance in clinic of children’s diseases. It’s explained by considerable prevalence of the disease at children and persons of young age.
In this regard strategy of development of regional public health care in modern conditions should be directed on efficacy increase of material and personnel resources use, improvement of the structure of establishments of public health care, providing a fairness and quality of the medical care rendered at treatment of chronic tonsillitis in children.

Objectives. To evaluate the level of knowledge of surgeons who work in the establishments of Ministry of Health of the Republic of Belarus and deal with the problems of pathogenesis and treatment of battle surgical trauma.
Methods. Analysis data of testing results of 270 surgeons of the establishments of Ministry of Health are presented in the article.
Results. Insufficient level of knowledge on this problem among surgeons has been established in 3 cases (2-4) (Me (25%-75%)) out of 10 possible. Individual parameters of surgeons (work expe-rience, qualification category, restricted specialization, clinical residency) as well as place of employment (the level of establishment of Public health care and its location) haven’t any statistically significant impact on the knowledge level of this problem.
Conclusions. It is necessary to bring changes in the system of surgeons’ training in our country to improve the quality of medical aid rendering to victims of extreme situations.

Analytical review of the scientific literature concerning the perioperative care of patients undergoing colonic resection with primary anastomosis application is presented in the article. Traditional perioperative care is associated with high postoperative complication rate and prolonged hospital stay. The approach introduction of an alternative, based on the principles of fast-track surgery when conducting the perioperative period has been expanded recently. The history of elaboration, basic elements and positive effects of fast-track surgery are described.
Advantages of the given approach permitting earlier terms of recovery, reduction of postoperative complications, length of hospital stay and treatment costs are highlighted. Basic tendencies of the program are absence of the mechanical bowel preparation and restriction of the prolonged preoperative starving before surgery, epidural anesthesia, intraoperative fluid management, avoidance of intra-abdominal drains, early enteral nutrition and active mobilization in the postoperative period.
However, the role of some elements of the program, such as prolonged epidural anesthesia, terms and quality of early enteral nutrition, abdominal cavity drainage are still debatable and evidence-based indications and terms of use require further study.

We present the case of the severe irritable bowel syndrome in a 76 year old woman. Chronic constipation and abdominal pain grew with time, and there was no relief in response to medication, diet, and psychotherapy. Severe spasm of the left part of the colon was found on barium enema. Laxatives didn’t help, and most of them even increased the severity of pain. Some relieve appeared only after a bowel movement after an enema. The procedure of purgation has taken up to 5 hours recently; and if there was no any effect the patient had to call for emergent hospital aid. The patient has lost 18 kg due to constrained dietary restriction. Quality of life has dramatically improved after the colostomy of the right transverse colon. The intensity and frequency of the pain syndrome decreased significantly. During the first 6 months after the surgery the patient regained 3 kg.
The described observation shows appropriateness of the surgical treatment in cases of severe irritable bowel syndrome which can’t be treated by means of conservative therapy. To solve the problem of the place of fecal fistula application, X-ray examination with the contrast substance is advisable to plan the operation proximal to the spastic site.

Objectives. To evaluate the efficiency of the endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography and endoscopic papillosphincterotomy at treatment of the biliary system diseases.
Methods. During the period from 2006 to 2011, 175 endoscopic retrograde cholan-giopancreatographies (ERCP) and 159 endoscopic papillosphincterotomies (EPST) were performed. All kinds of papillotomy were used: cannulation (complete, incomplete), needle (pre-cut, fistulotomy).
Results. The effectiveness of ERCP composed 92,7%. When it was impossible to carry out cannulation of Vater papilla and to reach the biliary system without trauma, we used needle or incomplete pre-cut papillotomy. Complication rate made up 8,9%. The highest percentage of complications was observed during the operation of EP-pre-cut (16,7%) with the needle electrode providing access to the common bile duct in the process the hindered cannulation. In 12 cases of the failed bile duct cannulation we managed to achieve positive results using a needle electrode.
Conclusions. The result analysis of the endoscopic procedures effectiveness indicates a high resolution capability of ERCP method (96,5%), and it is the «gold standard» at treatment of extrahepatic pathologies. Endoscopic papillotomy has high effectiveness amounting to 98,7%.
