Abstract. Aim – to investigate the influence of enterosorption and its combination with intra-tissue electrophoresis (ITE) of antibacterial preparations on the proteolytic and fibrinolytic activity of blood plasma in patients with common thermal burns.

Material and methods. Enterosorbtion detoxification by enterosgel was used in the multimodal treatment of 28 patients with thermal burns of II-IV stages. The drug was prescribed from 2-3 days after burn for 7-14 days, depending on the severity of the injury and manifestations of the intoxication syndrome. In 24 patients the treatment was complemented by galvanization of burn wounds with the preliminary introduction of antibacterial drugs. ITE began with 3-4 days after burn, taking into account the sensitivity of the microflora to antibiotics. The comparison group was made up of 30 patients with similar areas and depths of thermal burns receiving traditional treatment.

Results and discussion. It was discovered that the inclusion of enterosorption in multimodal therapy of burns diminished the level of unlimited proteolysis, favoured the increase of the level of blood plasma fibrinolytic activity. Its combination with ITE of antibacterial agents (galvanoenterosorption) ensured a higher therapeutic effect. Common deep thermal burns are accompanied by a significant increase in proteolytic and fibrinolytic activity (FA) of blood. Inclusion of enterosorbtion in the integrated therapy of burns provides reduction of proteolytic activity and maintenance of a high level of FA of plasma, which reduces the risk of thromboembolic complications.

Conclusion. Combined use of enterosorption and ITE of antibacterial agents (galvanoentersorption) with thermal burns provides a higher therapeutic effect.
