Objectives. To evaluate the effects of local light-emitting diode phototherapy (LED) on experimental wounds.
Methods. The study was performed on 102 white inbred rats with experimental purulent (Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa) wounds (6 subgroups with 17 animals in each). The rats in both control subgroups were not treated. Systemic antibiotic therapy was applied in the first and second subgroups of the main group; in the subgroups three and four of the main group (without antibiotic therapy) the local LED phototherapy were used sequentially: at first the antimicrobial photodynamic therapy with "Ointment Photolon" photosensitizer and emission wavelength λ1=(0,4050,002) m was applied, then the photoregulation by λ2=(0,6300,03) m was used. Conclusion about the impact of the local LED phototherapy on experimental wounds healing was made by comparing the results of visual observation, computer planimetry, histological and microbiological investigations in groups.
Results. The local application of unpolarized LED light λ1=(0,4050,002) m and medicinal agent Ointment Photolon led to the most significant reduction of the total wound microorganisms number in a short term, and the completion of the first phase of wound healing process by the seventh day of experiment. Stimulation of wound reparative processes was caused by local use of polarized LED phototherapy λ2=(0,6300,03) m after the inflammatory phase; this results in the activation of growth and maturation of granulation tissue formation as well as intensification of the epithelialization occurred from the edges of the wound.
Conclusion. The use of the local LED phototherapy with the selected parameters, taking into account the phase of experimental wound healing process resulted in the term reduction of healing no less than 5 days in vivo. The obtained results are considered to use a guide intended to develop treatment methods for designing clinical practice.

Objectives. To study the impact of local circulatory compensated hypoxia, occurring in the extensible flap in skin extension on the activity of the reparative regenerative processes in the area surrounding the wound.
Methods. The experiment was carried out on 18 white outbred rats. An oval skin wound was made in the upper part of the animals back. In the study group the skin of periwound area was being stretched by means of special device during 5 days; in the control group all wounds were well healed with no case of any external factors. The condition of the skin edges in the extension area was controlled by laser Doppler flowmetry: microcirculation index was reduced by no more than 50% from the original one. Activity of tissue regeneration was monitored by immunohistochemical studies of the granulation tissue from the expetrimental wound and extensible skin.
Results. An increased proliferative activity of the cells was registered in the granulation tissue in the primary defect zone in the skin extension of the periwound area compared to the control: after 3 days of skin stretching the percent of Ki-67-immunopositive cells was 57% (51; 60), and in the control group 34% (30; 42) (p=0,016) in the granulation tissue of the wound defect of the study group. On the 5th day of modeling of local circulatory hypoxia the statistically significant differences remained on the basis of this criterion 61% (55; 66) in the study group, compared to 42% (39; 50) in the control group (p=0,032). The statistically significant differences between the activity of regenerative hypertrophic processes have been revealed in the immunohistochemical analysis of tissue samples of the extensible flap in the study and control groups.
Conclusion. Local compensated hypoxia of the periwound area stimulates proliferative processes not only in the extensible flap, but also in the area of the primary wound defect. The obtained new data essentially specify effect of hypoxia on the body contributing the search of methods to control the degree of hypoxia in the extensible flap and new surgical methods affected on the process of regenerative hypertrophy.

Objectives. To develop the regression equations to predict the linear dimensions of an inguinal gap according anthropometric parameters of the anterior abdominal wall.
Methods. In the topographic and anatomic study the anthropometric parameters of anterior abdominal wall (the interspinal line, length of inguinal ligament, hypogastrium height) and the linear dimensions of inguinal gap (height, length) were studied on cadavers (n=123). Prior hernia repair the linear sizes of an inguinal gap with the use of the regression equations and within an operative intervention in 30 patients with inguinal hernias were determined during the clinical trials.
Results. In anatomic study it was established that the interosseus line made up 27,20,3 cm, the length of inguinal ligament 14,20,2 cm, the height of hypogastric area 7,70,15 cm, the height of inguinal gap 1,60,4 cm and the length 5,30,8 cm. Using correlation analysis a strong reliable correlation between the height of the inguinal gap, interosseus line (r=-0,7; p<0,01) and a height of hypogastric region (r=0,8; p<0,01) was determined. In turn, between the height of inguinal gap and the length of inguinal ligament as well as between the length of inguinal gap and the length of inguinal ligament an average reliable correlation r =-0,5 (p<0,05) was been registered.
On the basis of the obtained data the regression equations of forecasting of the linear dimensions of inguinal gap using anthropometric parameters of anterior abdominal wall were suggested: a=1,98+0,06×x1-0,14×x2+0,15×x3, b=7,91-0,18×x2 (a a height of inguinal gap, b a length of inguinal gap, x1 a the interspinal line, x2 a length of inguinal ligament, x3 height of hypogastric area). In a clinical study it was established the absence of statistically significant differences between the linear dimensions of the inguinal gap obtained before the hernia repair using proposed regression equations and measured during an operative intervention (p=0,82).
Conclusion. The proposed regression equations allow predicting the linear dimensions of the inguinal gap using anthropometric parameters of the anterior abdominal wall and can be useful in choosing the optimal size of the mesh prosthesis at the preoperative stage of inguinal hernia repair.

Objectives. To evaluate the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in patients after elimination of acute colonic obstruction.
Methods. The study enrolled 263 patients with acute colonic obstruction (ACO). All patients were divided into two groups: I comparison group with basic therapy (n=118) and II main group (n = 145), where in the postoperative period starting from the 2nd-3rd days hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) was applied together with a standard therapy. The primary surgeries were: a bowel resection, laparotomy, applying of colo- (ceco-, transverso-, sigmo-) stomy, nasointestinal intubation of the small intestine and stomach. Patient gender and age characteristics as well as the severity of the early perioperative period estimated according to the dynamic APACHE III scale had no differences. The duration of operations, anesthetic treatment and stay in the intensive care unit are comparable. The presence of comorbidities in patients of both groups is without any significant differences.
Results. In the postoperative period the use of HBO reduces the incidence of postoperative complications, significantly reducing the pneumonia percentage by 9,7%, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), delirium by 7,5%, paresis of the gastrointestinal tract for more than 3 days by 5,8%, septic complications by 3,5%. The development of acute kidney injury, left ventricular failure, postoperative myocardial infarction, as well as hypotension requiring vasoactive support, occurred in a comparable number of observations. Complications associated with pulmonary embolism, brain ischemia, acute gastrointestinal bleeding were considered to be similar in both groups. Medical and economic feasibility of HBO application in complex therapy in case of acute colonic obstruction (ACO) is based on statistical trends reducing the length of hospital stay by two days, the need for reoperation by 3,5%, in-hospital mortality rate by 3,1%.
Conclusion. The performed study gives the opportunity to recommend the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy after elimination of acute colonic obstruction.

Objectives. To investigate the results of surgical treatment of patients with pathological tortuosity of the internal carotid artery.
Methods. The results of surgical treatment of patients (n=97) with pathological tortuosity (PT) of internal carotid artery (ICA) in combination with atherosclerotic stenosis have been presented. The results of treatment depending on the degree of deformation, atherosclerotic damage localization and clinical symptomatology have been analyzed. The patients were divided into 3 groups depending on etiopathogenetical factors, clinical manifestations and patients examination results. In those groups the patients didnt differ in their age and sex characteristics.
Group I (n=18) the patients with pathological tortuosity of internal carotid artery (PT ICA) without atherosclerotic stenosis of carotid arteries;
Group II (n=36) the patients with pathological tortuosity of internal carotid artery and asymptomatic atherosclerotic stenosis;
Group III (n=43) the patients with pathological tortuosity of internal carotid artery and symptomatic atherosclerotic stenosis.
Results. No reliable statistic difference was revealed in comparison with the surgical treatment results of CA atherosclerotic stenosis in combination with ICA pathological tortuosity in the groups represented in the investigation (≥0,05). The optimal method of treatment of ICA pathological tortuosity is considered to be a surgical reconstruction. Surgical tactics means resection of excessive ICA length with further reimplantation or transposition, and in case of atherosclerotic stenosis performing eversion endarterectomy.
In group I the patients (n=11; 61,1%) showed specific symptoms of cerebral ischemic regression typical for PT ICA; in the group II (n=21; 58,3%); in group III (n=16; 37,2%).
Conclusion. Surgical correction in symptomatic patients is a successful method of treatment of cerebral insufficiency and ischemic stroke prevention. Early good and satisfactory results of surgical treatment of pathological tortuosity of the internal carotid artery accounted for 100% in group I; 97,2% in group II and 95,3% in group III.

Objectives. To optimize treatment results of patients with critical ischemia of lower extremities caused by occlusive and stenotic lesions of the femoral-popliteal arterial segment by means of the femoral popliteal bypass surgery.
Methods. The analysis of complex examination and treatment of patients (n=60) with critical ischemia of lower extremities with atherosclerotic lession was done. The ischemia was caused by atherosclerotic occlusion of a femoral-popliteo-tibial segment. There were 55 males and 5 females; age of the patients ranged between 52-78 years. All patients were divided into two groups depending on the technique of femoral-popliteal bypass grafting. Each group consisted of 30 patients. The patients (the 1st group, control) were treated by common bypass graft using reverse greater saphenous vein. The patients of the 2nd group was underwent to the operation made according to the original technology using free venous graft with destruction of the venous valves without vein reversion.
Results. An advantage of the technique is that it permits to increase the volume blood flow in 1,5 fold, magisterial blood flow in 1,6 fold, microcirculation in 1,3 fold, volume blood flow via graft in 4,75 fold in the early incisional period, to decreases the incidence of early postoperative complications by 23,4%: graft thrombosis by 6,7%, wound contamination by 13,2%, lymphorrhea by 3,3%. In the late incisional period it managed to reduce the quantity of late graft thrombosis by 40%, to improve long-term vein graft patency in 2,6 fold and quality of life by 10,6% (physical component ) and by 4,3% (mental one). In 2 years after operation the graft has been functioning in 36,7% of patients (the 1st group) and 83,3% of patients (the 2nd group). It allowed saving an extremity in 60% (the 1st group) and in 90% (the 2nd group) of patients.
Conclusion. The technique of femoro-popliteal bypass grafting using free venous graft with destroyed valves is considered to be pathogenetically justified and permits optimizing treatment results.

Objectives. To perform a comparative study of the skin and wall restructuring of great saphenous vein (GSV) in chronic venous diseases classes of C1 and C2 (CVD).
Methods. Tissue samples were harvested from the leg muscles of women died due to injuries. Group 1 consisted of normal samples (n=10). Groups 2 and 3 had visual signs of CVD classes C1 (n=10) and C2 (n=10). After tissue staining and description the epidermal thickness, proportion of elastic fibers (EF) and collagen fibers (CF) in the reticular dermis and the GSV media were determined. Agranulocytes, granulocytes, and mast cells (MC) were counted and optical density of MC was determined.
Results. Structural changes in the skin and GSV wall in groups C1 and C2 were of the same type with some differences. In group C1 a focal structural disorganization of EF and CF in the GSV wall with predominant changes of the endothelium without perivasculitis manifestations was observed. In group C2 the changes in the EF and CF were diffuse, involving endothelium and subendothelial structures and the media.
Perivasculitis phenomena were revealed in the skin and adventitia vessels. The number of cells involved in the chronic inflammatory process (agranulocytes, granulocytes, and mast cells) was greater in classes C1 and C2 compared to normal. A significant increase of the optical density of MC indicates to their potential to participate in modulating granulocytes and agranulocytes reactivity.
Conclusion. The chronic venous diseases classes C1 and C2 are the similar variants of genetically determined dysplasia of the connective tissue. The received data target at the implementation of a comprehensive approach in the treatment of chronic venous diseases class C1 patients.

Objectives. To develop a new method of osteotomy of the tibia for axial deformity correction of the lower extremities and to evaluate the results of its application in patients with gonarthrosis at the front deformities greater than 15 degrees.
Methods. The treatment results of 27 patients (aged up to 60 yrs) with gonarthrosis stage II-III who were underwent to corrective osteotomy near the knee joint have been studied. The method of corrective tibia osteotomy was applied in 13 patients (48%) with gonarthrosis stage II-III at a varus deformity of the lower extremities exceeding 15 degrees. The treatment results of the patients with knee gonarthrosis stage II-III assessed using a 100-point Josef and Kaufman scale. The results were evaluated within the monitoring periods of 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months.
Results. By using an in-house developed method the high values on the scale of Joseph & Kaufman (61 to 84,5 points) have been obtained corresponding to the results of analogous opening-wedge osteotomies (p>0,1 within a 24-month monitoring period). The best results after 6 months of monitoring were registered in the group of patients operated on by a new technique (p<0,037). The proposed method retaining all the advantages of high osteotomy (rapid and lower impact of consolidation) eliminates the tension of the patellar ligament, allows correcting the axial deformity of an axis shift of more than 15 degrees and ultimately permits patients quickly begin restoring the initial level of physical activity.
Conclusion. The proposed method of corrective osteotomy may be recommended for the normalization of the mechanical axis of a lower extremity in patients with knee gonarthrosis stage II-III and front deformities exceeding 15 degrees. This technique was applied for treatment of 13 patients with obtaining good results.

Objectives. To determine an optimal type of surgical treatment of patients suffering from esophageal cancer and to carry out comparative analysis of the main types of surgical procedures.
Methods. From 1990 to 2010 yrs. the radical surgeries in patients (n=347) with esophageal cancer have been performed in the "N.N. Alexandrov National Cancer Centre of Belarus". Three groups of patients were compiled. The 1st group (n=255) the patients underwent to two-level transthoracic esophagectomy. The 2nd group (n=60) three-level transthoracic esophagectomy. The 3rd group (n=32) transhiatal esophagectomy.
Results. In total cohort the post-operative complications were observed in 34,6% of patients. 30-day postoperative mortality was 12,1%, hospital mortality 13,5% and 60-day one 15,3%. Cervical esophageal anastomosis leak was dominated in the 2nd and 3rd groups 21,7% and 18,8%, respectively (p<0,001). The application of a wide gastric pedicle (n=57) with anastomosis in the cervical region the incidence of graft necrosis and anastomotic leak was 19,3%, which was lower in comparison with a narrow gastric pedicle (n=35) where those complications occurred in 48,6% of cases (p=0,006). At the same time hospital mortality was 5,3% and 2,9%, respectively (p=0,982). In esophagoplasty by narrow pedicle stalk (n=53) necrosis developed in 9,3% (p=0,938). 12,5% of the patients out of the 255 patients with localized intrapleural anastomosis died, while in the cervical localization (n=92) mortality was 16,3% (p=0,469).
Conclusion. In the cases of mid- and lower-thoracic esophageal cancer the two-level access to organs of abdominal and pleural cavities with application of intrapleural esophageal anastomosis and three-level access with cervical anastomosis for upper thoracic cancer are considered to be optimal. As for transhiatal access this technique seems to be less traumatic and made similar results with the direct ones of other types of surgical procedures.

Objectives. Increase of efficiency and safety of the multicomponent balanced endotracheal anesthesia in the combination with paravertebral block for surgical interventions in patients with breast cancer.
Methods. Two groups of patients were formed. In the 1st group (n=30) the multicomponent balanced endotracheal anesthesia was applied. In the 2nd group (n=27) the multicomponent balanced endotracheal anesthesia with paravertebral block (PVB) was applied. Paravertebral block was performed under ultrasound-guided surgery navigation at the Th1, Th2, Th3, Th4, Th5 and Th6 levels. At each level 1,5 mL of a local anesthetic (0,75% ropivacaine solution) was injected to patients, the total volume was 9 mL. In five cases the block was performed using 2 mL of a local anesthetic (0,75% ropivacaine solution) at each level and the total volume of 12 mL.
Results. During the operation the patients of the 1st group required more fentanyl than did those in the 2nd group; so as in the 1st group droperidol consumption was more than in the 2nd group. Neither pneumothorax nor any other complications were encountered after PVB. Postoperative reduced need for analgesics in patients of the 2nd group was marked only in the first day after surgery.
Conclusion. The present method of the spinal nerves PVB at the level Th1-Th6 with small doses of local anesthetic (administered ropivacaine at 0,75% (1,5 mL) at the level) as a component of the combined anesthesia for breast cancer surgery in the volume of radical mastectomy gives safe and effective pain relief. This method reduces the risk of systemic toxicity of local anesthetics. Application of small doses of local anesthetics for thoracic paravertebral block has been show to reduce patient need for analgesics in the first day after surgery.

Treatment of persistent chronic wounds completely differented in the etiology, pathogenesis, clinical pictures so far represents one of the most difficult issues of surgery. At the cellular and subcellular levels they are characterized by existence of a chronic inflammation and signs of all 3 phases of wound process simultaneously. In the article the difficult intercellular and cellular matrix interactions, mediators and regulators the reparative processes, participation of separate cellular elements during various temporary periods in normal and pathological healing, the factors modeling wound process are described. The current data of morphology of tissue regeneration obtained by electron microscopy, immunohistochemical researches, an autoradiography allowing the physicians of surgical specialties to provide the effective search of radical and rational methods of treatment of this problem are presented. The wide range of the new directions of tissue and genetic engineering, the cellular therapy used in practical medicine: the preparations of collagen, agents on the basis of negatively charged inert polystyrene microspheres, use of platelet-rich plasma and the preparations containing growth factors, including an endothelium of vessels, techniques of cultivation of fibroblasts, keratinocytes, epidermal cells have been described. The new technologies which are passing still laboratory researches, but having great clinical prospects are specified.

The number of patients with acute purulent diseases of the soft tissues hasnt reduced and tends to rise, accounting for 35-40% of all surgical patients. The success of the surgical treatment of acute purulent diseases of soft tissues depends on radical surgical aids, performed with adequate anesthesia. Drainage of wound fluid is an factor important to successful wound healing in the incisional period. The use of antibiotics is included in a comprehensive treatment of patients with acute purulent surgical infection. The development of current methods of active treatment is related to the revision of the main points of the classical incision-drainage method and changing the very nature of the operation itself. They envisage a targeted radical surgery in the site of supportive focus to provide the effective and adequate drainage so as completely different, more aggressive therapy of purulent wounds in the inflammatory and regeneration phases. Any drainage system requires some special conditions. The necessity for early and rapid closing of purulent wound led to the search and creation of conditions for sutures and skin plasty. A new perspective way to overcome antibiotic resistance is considered to use probiotics. Another new direction in solving the issue of the treatment of chronic inflammatory processes of different localization is the inclusion of neuropeptides such as hypothalamic nanopeptid (oxytocin) in a comprehensive treatment.

ME "Gomel Regional Clinical Hospital",
The Republic of Belarus

Three clinical cases of a rare cause of dysphagia: esophageal compression by cervical osteophytes are presented to pay attention of physicians.
The patients were being treated at the trauma and orthopedic department of ME Gomel "Regional Clinical Hospital" in the period from 01.08.2013 to 01.08.2014. Swallowing problems are a common complaint among pastients.
The decisive methods of instrumental diagnostics were the radiography and computed tomography of the cervical spine. No any deviations were revealed during laboratory investigation. All patients were operated on after complete and comprehensive diagnostics. In two patients the compression of the esophagus and the larynx by the osteophytes was observed, and in one of them - by the osteophytes and sclerous tissues; there were no complications during the operation, throughout the postoperative period. All patients were discharged on the 3rd-4th days after the surgery and began to work in a one-month period. In the case of dysphagia resulting from esophageal compression caused by cervical osteophytes, radiography is the best modality for characterizing suspected lesions. The only radical method for treating severe dysphagia due to the esophageal compression by the cervical osteophytes is considered to be a resection.

Objectives. To study the results of surgical treatment of patients with acute pancreatitis according to suggested tactical approach taking into consideration the revised Atlanta Classification 2012.
Methods. During the period of 2005-2013 yrs. the (n=121) patients with destructive pancreatitis had underwent surgical treatment in GI "V.T. Zaytsev Institute of General and Urgent Surgery of National AMS of Ukraine"; they were subjected to surgical interventions different by volume. Standard laboratory methods as well as ultrasound examination and computed tomography were used for preoperative examination. 269 operations were performed on 121 patients; minimally invasive interventions or their combinations were used in 87,0% cases.
Results. Intraoperative complications developed in 2,6% of patients and they were revealed and treated during the operation. Early postoperative complications developed in 43,8% of patients; the most frequent of them were: postoperative wounds suppuration in 43 patients, intestinal and pancreatic fistulas in 4 and 5 cases, respectively, arrosive bleeding and multiple organ failure in 6 and 9 cases, respectively.
Mortality rate made up 21,5%. The most often causes of death were: intoxication 38,5%, multiple organ failure 23,1%, fulminant pancreatitis 15,4%, arrosive bleeding 11,5%.
Late postoperative complications developed in 23,6% of survivors. Among them: ventral hernias were detected in 10 patients, mechanical jaundice in 2 cases, forming of pancreatic pseudocysts in 2 cases, duodenal obstruction in 2 patients, abscess of spleen in 2 cases.
Conclusion. Staged surgical approach using minimally invasive technologies in treatment of patients with necrotizing pancreatitis permits to decrease the number of intra- and postoperative complication as well as mortality rate in this group of patients.
