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 10,11,03 days (using traditional methods 12,51,28 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 isnt accompanied by recurrences.
