Objectives. To study the effect of sodium dichloroacetate on the ischemia course and the development of the reperfusive syndrome as a result of the vascular liver isolation in rats.
Methods. The experimental study was performed on 110 non-linear male rats divided into 7 groups. Under the general anesthesia the laparotomy was carried out, sodium dichloroacetate has been injected intraperitoneally in the dosage of 300 mg/kg, the hepatoduodenal ligament was exposed and clamped within 10, 15 and 20 minutes. The comparison groups were composed of rats that had undergone the same manipulations except the sodium dichloroacetate injections. The control group included rats that had undergone only laparotomy. On the 15th reperfusion minute the animals were subjected to the blood and liver sampling for further laboratory studies. In the blood plasma the activity of the LDH, the AST and the ALT was determined. In erythrocytes and the liver homogenate, the activity of the glutathione peroxidase, the glutathione reductase and the content of the reduced glutathione were determined.
Results. Sodium dichloroacetate considerably improves the liver ischemia tolerance which has been confirmed by the lowering of the hepatocyte cytolysis. Thus the LDH activity in the blood plasma was 2-3.2 times lower than the indices of the control groups. The research of the glutathione metabolism against the background of correction by means of sodium dichloroacetate has also revealed the enhancement of this link in the non-specific resistance system. Besides the activity of the glutathione reductase and the glutathione concentration in erythrocytes have not decreased even during the 20-minute ischemia. In the liver homogenate the increase in the glutathione peroxidase by 1.7-2.8 times has been revealed. The concentration of the restored glutathione has decreased by the 10-minute ischemia by 30% and further has maintained on that level. Such changes can be caused by the intensive system functioning of the glutathione metabolism by local injuries which is accompanied by the more active resistance to the injuring factor.
Conclusions. The presented data demonstrate the cytoprotective effect of sodium dichloroacetate on the models of the ischemic-reperfusive liver injury as a result of its vascular isolation.

Objectives. To evaluate the mechanical and degrading properties of nano-containing wound-healing polymer materials in the study in vitro.
Methods. The bio-polymer bases in the form of films were used in the research in which nano-oxides zinc (ZnO), magnesium nano-oxides (MgO) and pyrogenic silica (SiO2) in various concentrations were introduced. The degradation, relative elongation at break, tensile strength in tensile testing machine, density and Shore hardness, and their swelling properties of the studied bio-polymers were investigated in vitro.
Results. The study has shown that the introduction into the polymeric base of 1% solution of silicon oxide slightly increases the film strength, while an increase in its content up to 5% slightly reduces it. The same pattern is observed in the case of the introduction of zinc and magnesium into the film. After 1 day of the film exposure in water, tensile strength could not be determined as the films degraded and was destroyed while fixing the studied materials in the tensile machine. This demonstrates the ability of the film to degrade being in contact with the liquid. Conducted at 36°C study shows that the strength of all films is sharply reduced and is within the error of the tensile machine. Investigation of the density of synthesized films has shown that films with 1% content of zinc nanooxides and silicon oxide have a high density, which correlates with the breaking strength. Determining the degree of film swelling has shown a high capacity for swelling in the films without nanooxides of zinc and somewhat decreased degree of swelling in case of its presence.
Conclusions. Our study has shown that the properties of bio-degradable polymeric materials depend on concentration of active drugs that are introduced and their degradation properties can provide drug delivery of the medication to the affected region.

Objectives. Improving the results of surgical treatment of complicated pancreatic pseudocysts (type II), using minimally invasive techniques.
Methods. Treatment outcomes of patients (n=247) with complicated pancreatic pseudocysts (type II) according to classification system offered by A. D’Egidio and M. Schein in 1991 have been analyzed. All patients underwent general clinical blood and urine tests, biochemical blood tests, ultrasound examination, multislice computed tomography, endoscopic fibrogastroduodenoscopy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, magnetic resonance imaging, endoscopic ultrasonography and morphological studies. To choose the operative treatment method it is necessary to take into account the patient’s age, the type and location of pseudocysts, kind of complications, the state of other organs and systems, severity of organ dysfunction according to SOFA Score. The outcomes of surgical treatment of patients were evaluated according to the classification of Clavien-Dindo (2004).
Results. 119 (48.2%) patients underwent the minimally invasive “step-up surgical approach” technique, in 97 cases (81.5%) surgery was performed in a single stage and in 22 (18.5%) cases – it was a stage before the open surgery. Primary open surgical procedures were performed in 128 (51.8%) patients. Complications occurred in 40 (16.2%) of 247 patients, 1 (0.4%) patient died.
Conclusion. A minimally invasive “step-up surgical approach” technique is preferable in treatment the patients with complicated pancreatic pseudocysts which serves as a basis consisting of a puncture, puncture-drainage percutaneous interventions, transmural anastomosis and transgastric or transduodenal stenting of pseudocysts, X-ray endovascular occlusion of the arrosive blood vessels, with subsequent implementation of open surgical procedures (according to the indications), which together with the minimally invasive interventions should be considered as intercomplementary methods of treatment.
The choice of open interventions depends on disease severity, localization of pseudocysts, the state of the pancreatic ductal system, and the presence of adjacent organs complications.

Objectives. To improve the treatment results of patients with the intrahepatic cholangiolithiasis in hepaticojejunostomy strictures using minimally invasive methods.
Methods. During the period from 2009 till 2016 25 patients with hepaticojejunostomy strictures were being treated in our center. 6 of these patients had coexistent intrahepatic cholangiolithiasis. The final diagnosis of hepaticojejunostomy stricture and cholangiolithiasis above the anastomosis was established according to MRI-cholangiography, double balloon enteroscopy and percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography. Rehepaticojejunostomy was performed in 13 (52%) patients. 12 (48%) patients were subject to minimally invasive intervention such as laser vaporization of anastomosis using double balloon enteroscopy (7 patients) and lithoextraction with double balloon enteroscopy (1), transhepatic cholangioscopy (2 patients) with laser lithotripsy (1), balloon dilatation of the stricture of rehepaticojejunoanastomosis (4), lithoextraction (4), including with double balloon enteroscopy («randezvous» procedure) (1), stenting (2). Combined minimally invasive procedures was reduced to performing simultaneous variants of percutaneous transhepatic endobiliary interventions (balloon dilatation, laser vaporization of bile duct concrements through the cholangioscope, stenting of the lobar ducts and the hepaticojejunoanastomoses zone) and endoscopic interventions using a double balloon enteroscope (lithoextraction, sanation).
Results. There were no lethal outcomes after minimally invasive interventions. Among early complications were the following: cholangitis aggravation (5 patients); incrustation of stents with bile concrements - in 1 patient (within 1 year after the procedure), requiring a reoperation; recurrences of HJA strictures (2), for the elimination of which in the period from 6 months till 2 years rehepaticojejunostomy was performed. In the long-term period, in 5 (10.9%) of the operated patients in the period from 6 months up to 3 years the recurrence of HJA stricture was observed. All these patients were subject to rehepaticojejunostomy.
Conclusions. Combined endoscopic and endobiliary techniques of treatment and endobiliary minimally invasive correction of rehepaticojejunostomy strictures and cholangiolithiasis demonstrate good immediate and long-term results.

Objectives. To determine the role of membrane blebbing of the lymphocytes as a marker of the endothelial dysfunction in the progressive clinical course of the peripheral artery disease of the legs.
Methods. The cohort prospective study was conducted enrolling 60 patients with the peripheral artery disease of the legs, with multilevel lesion of arteries, and ΙΙA stage of ischemia according to the classification of Fontaine-Pokrovsky. Based on the objective physical examination results all patients were divided into two groups; the 1st contained 30 patients with no progressive clinical course of the peripheral artery disease of the legs, the 2nd had 30 patients with a progressive clinical course. Membrane blebbing of the lymphocytes of the peripheral blood for all the patients was determined using the phase-contrast microscopy. For the objectification of the pathological process progression, Doppler ultrasound imaging of the lower limbs arteries was made to evaluate the residual vascular lumen during the first hospitalization and 6 months afterwards.
Results. Membrane blebbing of the lymphocytes of the peripheral blood is an indicator which objectively reflects the violations in the endothelium functional state. At progressive clinical course the large number of lymphocytes was revealed at the terminal blebbing state 14.9 [13.8; 19.7]%, which reflects the intensity of the pathological process. During Doppler ultrasound imaging of patients with progressive clinical course, more pronounced narrowing of the superficial femoral artery lumen is registered, which makes up -14.3 [-11.2; -17.9]%. In case of a progressive clinical course the residual vascular lumen for the posterior tibial artery was 14.5 [5.4; 21.3]% and for the anterior tibial artery it was 16.7 [11.2; 19.4]%.
Conclusions. The highest correlation coefficients with the progression of peripheral artery disease have initial (rS=0.87, p=0.001) and terminal membrane blebbing of the lymphocytes (rS=0.92, p=0.001). Complex diagnostics of the endothelium state, including membrane blebbing of the lymphocytes reflects the type of the pathological process course of the peripheral artery disease of the legs.

Objectives. To develop diagnostic technology of the reperfusion injury due to imbalance of pro-/antioxidant state of recipient in the post-transplant period.
Methods. The examination results of 60 patients with the stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD) have been analyzed. Kidney transplantation has been performed in all patients. The balance of pro-/antioxidant state of the organism was assessed by the method of luminol-dependent chemiluminescence (LDCL) of the blood plasma before the surgery and 24 hours after it. To study the influence of anesthetic support and surgery treatment on the state of pro-/antioxidant balance, the group of patients (n=20) was examined who underwent the scheduled surgery treatment under general anesthesia.
Results. The kidney transplantation has been found out to cause a significant shift in the balance of pro-/antioxidants to pro-oxidants and a significant reduction of the potency of antiradical body system within the patients with the stage 5 CKD during the first 24 hours already. When analyzing the pro-/antioxidant balance level and the capacity of antioxidant organism system in the group of patients with the immediate graft function (IGF), the index of pro-/antioxidant balance in the first day after the surgery was 24.0 [11.9; 44.6]%, and the capacity of antioxidant system was 35.8 [12.7; 40.8]%. In the group of patients with the delayed graft function (DGF) in the first 24 hours in the postoperative period a more significant balance shift to pro-oxidant up to 10.7 [6.1; 19.2]% (p=0.011) was detected, the antioxidant organism system was exhausted up to 12.7 [6.1; 29.3]% (p=0.024). There were no significant changes identified in the indices of pro-/antioxidant balance level of the blood plasma within the group of patients who underwent the scheduled surgical treatment in the postoperative period.
Conclusions. The determination of the severity of reperfusion injury within the patients after kidney transplantation can be performed on the basis of detection of pro-/antioxidant state imbalance and the potency index of the organism antioxidant system that expands the diagnostic possibilities of early risk detection of the delayed graft function.

Objectives. The study of the short-term results of reconstructive operations in patients undergoing obstructive colonic resection in a specialized hospital.
Methods. The data of patients (n=128) with functioning intestinal stoma after obstructive colon resections being treated from January 2011 to December 2016 were analyzed. The reconstruction of the colon was failed in 7 patients. There were 57 males (47.1%) and 64 females (52.9%) from total of 121 patients. The average age of patients was 67.8±10.4 years. There were 55 patients (45,5%) older than 70 years.
The main cause for obstructive resections was large intestinal obstruction – in 103 patients (85.1%); the left-sided tumor of the colon was originated predominantly – in 103 patients (85.1%).
Results. Median time of reconstructive and restorative phase was 6 (1-31) months. In 7 out of 121 patients the disease recurrence was diagnosed intraoperatively (2 cases – single parietal peritoneal metastases, 4 cases – an intestine stump recurrence and mesenteric lymph node metastasis). The end-to-end anastomosis were performed in 107 patients (88.4%); in 10 of them (8.3%) anastomosis was performed by stapler technique. The median postoperative hospital stay was 14 (8-16) days and in patients without complications – 10 (8-12) days. Incisional complications developed in 21 cases (17.4%). Postoperative mortality was 2.5%.
Conclusion. The conducted study has confirmed the treatment efficacy of complicated forms of colorectal cancer as well as performing reconstructions of the colon in a specialized hospital. The optimal time of the reconstruction phase after the obstructive colon resection is considered to be 5-6 months.

Objectives. To determine the diagnostic value of clinical and laboratory findings in patients within the first 24 hours after the abdominal surgery as a predictive factor for prognosis of multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) development.
Methods. A prospective case-control study in patients (n=157) was carried out, which identified a number of clinical and laboratory findings within the first day after the abdominal surgery. Two groups were singled out: the first one (n=88) – without any symptoms of MODS, the second (n=69) – with the presence of MODS.
Results. It was revealed that the patients in the second group had a significant increase in heart rate variability (p=0.005), a reduction of mean arterial pressure (p=0.045), and oxygenation index (p=0.001). Diuresis in patients did not differ between the groups, but urea and creatinine levels were significantly increased in the second group (p<0.001). A reduction of total protein (p=0.007) and cholesterol (p=0.029) reflecting the change in metabolism was registered in the second group.
The analysis of the characteristic curves showed that SOFA scores (area under the curve [AUC]): 0.857; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.773-0.941; ð<0.001) and Apache III: (AUC 0.83; 95% CI 0.734-0.916; ð<0.001) seemed to have a better predictive value concerning MODS. A high predictive efficiency has been expressed in results of the comparative analysis: oxygenation index (AUC 0.717; 95% CI 0.621-0.813; ð=0.001) and cholesterol level (AUC 0.724; 95% CI 0.667-0.782; ð<0.001). Total protein level is an indicator of an average diagnostic efficacy (AUC 0.65; 95% CI 0.549-0.746; ð=002). Elevated C-reactive protein test has not been shown to be a marker for the development of MODS in the first 24 hours after the abdominal surgery.
Conclusion. The SOFA score is shown to have advantages in comparison with Apache III scale of MODS, because the total maximum SOFA score can be easily calculated. Patients after abdominal surgery on admission to the intensive care unit are needed to determine the value of oxygenation index. Due to the cheapness and technical simplicity of total cholesterol level it can be used as a screening of MODS.

Objectives. To study the effectiveness of color 3-D modeling on the basis of data analysis of multidetector computed tomography when performing the subtotal resection of the pancreas head in chronic pancreatitis.
Methods. In the study the patient was enrolled with a diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis with enlargement of the major pancreatic duct, cysts of the pancreas head, obstructive jaundice. The case-history had an alcohol abuse. For 5 years, he was suffering from constant shingles in the epigastrium. 10 days before hospitalization the patient began to note the yellowish discoloration of the skin. A multidetector computed tomography with bolus contrasting before and after the operation was performed. Based on the obtained data in the program “Autoplan”, which was created in the Center for Breakthrough Studies of the FSBEE HE “Samara State Medical University”, a preoperative color 3-D model of the surgical intervention area was created, which was tested intraoperatively.
Results. According to this 3-D model, the patient was identified three cysts in the head of the pancreas, unrelated, a significant expansion of the major pancreatic duct, marked bilious hypertension with the expansion of common bile duct and common hepatic duct. For the purpose of biliary decompression, the percutaneous transhepatic cholangiostoma was applied. The duodenum-preserving subtotal resection of the pancreas head with the longitudinal pancreatojejunostomy was performed, and hepaticojejunoanastomosis was formed on the Roux-en-Y. The data of the preoperative model were confirmed intraoperatively, and all three cysts were eliminated. The postoperative period proceeded without complications. The patient was discharged on the 14th day in a satisfactory condition. To assess the adequacy of the scope of the surgical intervention, a postoperative color 3-D model was also constructed. The postoperative 3-D model did not reveal any pathological formations in the pancreas.
Conclusions. 3-D modeling provides a surgeon with the reliable topographic and anatomical information about the organs of the hepatobiliopancreatoduodenal region. 3-D reconstruction improves the chances for success of the operation and reduces the risk of postoperative complications. Postoperative 3-D modeling allows estimating the adequacy of the volume of the performed surgical intervention.

The paper reviews recent studies that evaluate the present-day concept concerning Hirschsprung’s disease in children as well as current diagnostic and treatment methods of this pathology.
Hirschsprung’s disease is a relatively common disease in the pediatric surgery. The literature analysis has shown that if the pathogenesis of the disease is no longer considered controversial entity, the application of new methods of examination and surgical treatment still remains complex and ambiguous. The use of one or another method of diagnosis and treatment is thought to be determined mainly by the possibilities and preferences of medical establishment. At the same time, the functional results of surgical treatment leave much to be desired due to the absence of clearly defined terms for surgical correction of the defect, as well as the unresolved issues of choice of operative treatment method appropriated for each specific child.
The analysis of the literature data has shown the possibility of solving these problems by developing a rational program of examination, taking into account all existing complications and determining the appropriate treatment tactics.
Radical one-stage surgical treatment of Hirschsprung’s disease with the use of minimally invasive methods is becoming more widespread. Current surgical methods for treating Hirschsprung’s disease in infant and young children are essential in reducing morbidity and mortality associated with this disease.

Acute massive bleeding from the gastroduodenal zone leads to the development of the syndrome of intestinal insufficiency (SII), due to ischemia/reperfusion injury of the intestinal wall. Violation of the barrier functions of the intestinal wall causes a massive inflow of the toxins from the intestine to the portal circulation and intestinal lymphatic collector that triggers multiple organ failure. As a result the issue of early diagnosis of the SII arises urgently, which currently represent a wide range of invasive biochemical studies, studying of myoelectric parameters and sonography data. However, taking into consideration the complicated, multilateral nature of the pathogenesis of intestinal insufficiency, it is extremely difficult to differentiate the most informative one. At a result, in the clinical practice there is no established strategy of SII treatment in the gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB). The main tendencies of SII therapy are limited by intraintestinal detoxification and correction of oxidative stress. This explains a large number of experimental studies in which using the modeling of hemorrhagic hypotension and intestinal ischemia/reperfusion lesions, the possibilities of supporting its secretory and kinetic functions, the correction of metabolic disorders and regenerating mechanisms, the enhancement of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory abilities are studied.
However, despite the large arsenal of experimental and clinical investigations, the issues of early detection and etiopathogenetic treatment of SII are far from being solved and require further study.

Gastro-pulmonary fistulas are extremely rare. The article describes a clinical case of the gastro-pulmonary fistulas complicating a left-side traumatic diaphragmatic hernia and resulted in the development the lower lobe gangrene of the left lung and sepsis.
41-year-old man 6 years after a penetrating stab injury to the left-side of the chest, cured by the tube thoracostomy, had pains in the left side of the lower part the chest and in the left hypochondrium, cough with expectoration of muco-purulent sputum streaked with blood, the body temperature increased up to 38°C. Chest X-ray, ultrasound and computed tomography of the abdomen showed subdiaphragmatic abscess and the destruction of the lower lobe of the left lung. After the puncture with the ultrasound-guided draining, the air vent was registered. The correct diagnosis was made 1,5 months after clinical onset of the disease as a result of a repeated magnetic resonance imaging. The patients underwent the anterolateral thoracotomy in the fifth intercostal space on the left-side with the resection of V ribs and the intersection of the left costal arch, uncoupling the gastro-pulmonary fistulas, the closure of the defect of the diaphragm, the lower lobectomy. The patient was discharged in a satisfactory condition 2 weeks after the surgery.
The analysis of the case and the literature review on the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of gastro-pulmonary fistulas are presented.

Objectives. To analyze the first experience of the reconstructive surgery in patients with Charcot joint.
Methods. Treatment results of 4 patients with Charcot joint (diabetic neurogenic arthropathy) who were performed the reconstructive surgery aimed to correct osteoarticular foot deformities. Charcot joint diagnostics was based on the results of clinical and radiological studies (direct radiography, computed tomography). In the treatment of patients, the technique of arthrodesis of the destructed foot joints was used with the stabilization of by the external fixators or using the techniques of focal (osteal and transosseous) osteosynthesis (internal fracture fixation).
Results. It is established that when the destruction is located in the ankle joint area, the method of choice of the surgical correction of the foot deformation in the acute phase of diabetic neurogenic arthropathy is arthrodesis of the joint with the external fixation with the compression-distraction apparatus; in the chronic phase of neurogenic arthropathy – arthrodesis of the joint using internal fracture fixation with a metal plate with angular stability of screws. When the destruction zone is located in the middle part of the foot in the chronic phase of the disease, the method of choice of the surgical correction is arthrodesis of the tarsal joints with the internal fixation with the metal wires. In all 4 patients, the performed surgical interventions resulted in the improvement of the anatomical and functional characteristics of the foot and there was no need to use complex orthopedic footwear while resting on the limb and walking, and one managed to avoid recurrences of trophic ulcers on the foot during the entire period of the postoperative follow-up.
Conclusions. The issue of using various methods of orthopedic correction of the foot deformity is relevant in the surgery of the diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) and should be considered individually, taking into account such factors as: the stage of the disease, localization and prevalence of the bone-joint destruction zone, the severity of foot deformity, the presence of foci of purulent inflammation and trophic ulcers as well as the patient’s somatic status.

Objectives. To improve the methods of transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEM) of the rectal neoplasms increasing the radicalism of surgical treatment and to reduce the incidence of complications and recurrences.
Methods. The analysis of the results of transanal surgeries (n=44) performed due to the large villous benign tumors and polyps with a wide base (39), rectal cancer (n=4; T1-T2NxMo) on the background of recurrent malignant polyp has been conducted. Transanal total mesorectumectomy (n=1) was performed in combination with laparoscopy and sigmorectal anastomosis.
Results. No intraoperative complications were registered. The postoperative bed-day was 6.8±1.2 days in the study group. In the early incisional period, after removing the neoplasms the defects in the rectal wall was closed with suture, the evidence of edema in 33 (76%) patients at the site of wall closure (which had gone down completely by the 7th-8th days) was detected during control rectoscopy. 4 patients who had been operated on villous tumors of low localization, the dehiscence of intestinal wall suture had been already registered by the 2nd-4th days afterward.
In the long-term postoperative period, complications requiring surgical correction appeared in 3 (6.8%) patients (cicatricial stenosis-1, tumor recurrence-2), who have been successfully performed the repeated interventions with the use of TEM. Within 2 years no signs of both local recurrent and metastatic disease spread to the lungs and to the liver were revealed in the patient after transanal mesorectumectomy with laparoscopy. In the remaining 31 (70.5%) patients, the outcomes of surgical treatment are regarded as good and satisfactory.
Conclusion. The transanal endoscopic microsurgery is accepted as an effective alternative method for large rectal adenomas of any type of growth. Minimally invasive surgeries with the SILS system are possible to perfom throughout the rectum; since they possess a number of advantages and there is minimal risk of complications and recurrences.
