Objectives. To evaluate short- and long-term results of the operative treatment at the deep venous thrombosis of the femoral-popliteal segment.
Methods. The analysis of the examination results of 25 patients with the deep venous thrombosis located in the femoral-popliteal segment and the presence of floating thrombus in the general and superficial femoral veins has been carried out in the paper. The complex of clinical and instrumental examination of patients included duplex ultrasonography, Doppler, radiopaque venography and radioisotope phleboscintigraphy. It allowed evaluating the functional status of the collateral blood flow and justifying the indications for surgical treatment of deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremities. The volume of the operative treatment included the open thrombectomy in the femoral veins, followed by the ligation of the superficial femoral veins below the confluence of the deep vein of the thigh. In the distant period the quantitative evaluation of the surgical treatment results was performed according to the current guidelines on the evaluation of patients with chronic venous disease of the lower limbs (VCSS clinical scale and the scale of work-capacity reduction VDS).
Results. The results have showed the high efficiency and appropriateness of surgical treatment thrombectomy of the femoral-popliteal segment with the ligation of the superficial femoral vein. The given type of surgery in patients with thrombosis of the femoral -popliteal segment permitted to reduce the clinical manifestations of post-thrombotic syndrome and chronic venous insufficiency in the postoperative period.
Conclusions. Early thrombectomy is considered as an effective and pathogenetically justified method of surgical treatment. The widespread application of the open surgical treatment of deep venous thrombosis of the lower extremities allows preventing the pulmonary embolism and minimizing the effects of chronic venous insufficiency.
