Objectives. To evaluate the efficacy of sorption-drainage devices based on carbon fiber sorbent "Karbopon-B-Aktive" in the complex treatment of purulent wounds and soft tissue abscesses.
Methods. The study included the patients (n=218) with soft tissue abscesses and purulent wounds. The control group consisted of 103 patients, and the experimental group of 115. Two subgroups were formed in the control group "Control-1" and "Control-2". The subgroup "Control-1" consisted of 62 patients. The abscess cavity was drained with wet-drying gauzes. The subgroup "Control-2" included 41 patients. In those patients purulent cavities were drained by PVC-tubes.
74 patients of the experimental group ("Experience-1") with the size of a purulent cavity up to 30 cm³ drainage was carried out by the sorption-drainage device (CDD), and in 41 patients with the size of purulent cavity more than 30 cm³ ("Experience-2") the sorption-active drainage system (SADS ) was applied. The groups were comparable in age, gender, form and severity of the disease. Efficacy of treatment was assessed according to clinical, laboratory and microbiological studied materials.
Results. In the groups Experience-1" and "Experience-2" on the 3rd day of studies, scant purulent exudate was observed in 98,4% and 60% of patients, respectively, and in "Control-1" and "Control 2" groups- in only 13,2% and 2,5% of patients. On the day 7th day of the studies the purulent exudate from the wounds in the patients of "Experience-1" and "Experience-2" was not registered. In the control groups purulent exudate from the wound remained. At the same time in both experimental groups more rapid positive dynamics of clinical indices of blood, LII, LIS, characterizing the severity of the inflammatory process was observed.
Conclusion. The sorption-drainage device (CDD) and sorption-active drainage system (SADS) facilitate the rapid purification of wounds from pus, reduce the intoxication syndrome and shorten the hospitalization period.
