[Surgical treatment of chronic venous insufficiency of the lower extremities complicated by trophic ulcers].Khirurgiia (Mosk). 1991 JunK
The article deals with the experience in surgical treatment of 157 patients with chronic venous insufficiency complicated by trophic ulcers of the leg. Purposeful study of the method of two-stage operative treatment of trophic ulcers of the lower extremities of venous origin was conducted. The expediency of dividing the operation into two stages is substantiated on basis of analysis of the results. One-stage operation was carried out in 77 and two-stage operation in 80 patients. In the group of patients treated by one-stage operation 7 (9.8%) had suppuration of the postoperative wounds. No suppuration of wounds was encountered in patients who were operated on in 2 stages. Among 51 patients who underwent one-stage operation 4, (7.8%) had a recurrence of the disease. A recurrence of the disease (trophic ulcer) was not revealed in 57 patients treated by two-stage operation.
