Summary. Purpose. The improvement of the treatment effect of patients with a decompensated form of the chronic venous insufficiency. Reduction of the reatment period in a hospital by application of the complex treatment.

Materials and methods. The work was based on the studies of 24 patients who had trophic ulcers on the lower leg. All patients have undergone combined treatment, including scleroobliteration of perforating veins, phototherapy, platelet-derived growth factor, the use of wound closure with a heterograft.

Results and discussion. The combined use of phototherapy and platelet-derived growth factor has significantly reduced the duration of all phases of the wound process. The ultrasound-controlled scleroobliteration has helped to remove a pathological reflux in the insolvent tibial perforators. The studies have shown that the use of phototherapy in the treatment of trophic ulcers with the application of the heterograft has contributed to the rapid cleansing of wounds, accelerating the appearance of granulations and epithelialization, has reduced the need for antibacterial therapy and is an alternative to autodermoplasty.

Conclusions. The use of the offered technique allows to reach optimum restoration conditions of the affected fabrics trophism, leads to the decrease in the number of complications and reduces the hospitalization period.
