[Use of ultrasonics and antibiotics in the treatment of wounds in patients with high risk of infection of vascular transplants].

Abstract

The level of bacterial colonization of the operative wounds in performance of the reconstructive operations on the vessels equal to 10(3) bacteria in 1 g of tissue is critical for the development of suppuration. The use for treating the wounds of the low-frequency ultrasound and gentamycin solution in 17 patients permitted to reduce the critical level of bacterial wound colonization, and due to this, to decrease the incidence of the purulent-septic complications from 35.7 to 5.9%. In 14 patients after the operations for late reocclusion performed in presence of cicatrices of the tissues, there was no wound suppuration.
